Form filling: that'll end child abuse

I try not to swear on this blog. But I've had enough. Fuck I'm angry.

After eight fucking years in office the only thing the fucking useless twats that call themselves government (and a 'social justice' one at that) can do to solve the murder of defenceless, harmless, beautiful children is ask mothers to fill in a fucking form IF they go to a hospital.

That is not the worst of it. Suggestions from the hangers-on to the government, Dunne (prissy wanker), and the Greens are hopeless, and that is being kind:
United Future leader Peter Dunne said today all that had been achieved since the death of the Kahui twins last year was "a large amount of handwringing and navel gazing".

"It's time to stop pretending that the kind of child abuse suffered by Nia Glassie and the Kahui twins is not a Maori problem," he said.

"Within some families there is a culture of cover-up and collaboration that condones long-term child abuse."

Well get off your fat arse, get a hair cut and do something about it. You vote with the bloody government, dickhead. Maybe you could have withdrawn support for the shambles that is the Electoral Finance Bill instead of voting for it (no doubt as a trade off for something) as a sign of protest of lack of action on this issue. But oh no, that would require courage, something you have never had.

What do the Greens offer? More money of course. Yeah, let's pay the bludgers who kill their kids even more money to do it. At least they won't have to rob the dairy to pay for their 'P' habit. Dunne anything about the 'P' problem Labour, Dunne and Co? Thought not.

The only sensible comment came from Heather Roy, as expected.
Act MP Heather Roy said today another "plan" would be meaningless unless serious issues of family breakdown and welfare dependency were tackled head-on

"Enough is enough. The time for fiddling around the edges is over," Ms Roy said.

"Only tackling the root of the problem - no matter how hard this might be - will have any effect at all."
When are people going to wake up in this country and realise that THE GOVERNMENT IS THE FUCKING PROBLEM. IT IS NOT THE SOLUTION.

Rant over. Aspirin taken. Time to sleep.

Indeed Gooner.

This is feminism gone mad.

Oh yeah men are responsible for all domestic violence and child abuse.

Call it like it really is and you be a racist bastard but demonize half the human race - the half with balls and its ok

This addled Labour Government regime under the free rein of a demented Helen Clark is just one rort after another and I find it deplorable that the kiwi public are not crying for blood from these elected buffoon’s, as control without integrity is dangerous and dreadful.

What are the so called male politicians doing about this unlawful sexism from the sick and sinister sisterhood ?

History will remember Clark’s hateful regime with one word; corruption.

I'm ambivalent about this. I think Heather Roy's point has a certain logic about it - for instance, in Third World countries, the underclass is too busy being ruthlessly exploited or struggling to feed itself to spend time arsing about torturing children for amusement, so her solution would certainly work. But this solution doesn't strike me as much better than the problem.

On the other hand, Labour and the Greens will concentrate on attempting to mitigate social factors that create an underclass to the exclusion of actually doing anything about the problem. There has to be some kind of happy medium.

Milt, beung 'underclass' has nothing to do with it. My wife and her family were poor; her mother was a widow in her early 40's and had to raise 3 young kids on a pension with no part time job.

The kids have grown up to be fantastic adults. The difference is that she loved her kids, the parents in Rotorua didn't.

That is all that is needed: love.

Don't even get me started Gooner. My missus is sick of me frothing about this issue - and it has only been current for what, all of three days?

If you are of the female persuasion and were in a minor/major car accident, brought into the ED in shock, these are the last fucking things you want to be asked.

Ms. Roy is on the money. This thing has to be tackled at the root somehow. And it is not being racist to call it a Maori problem. A spade is a spade, is a spade.

"I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

...and so on....


Well said Gooner.
Peter Cresswell at Not PC made similar telling points about paying people who do not want to have child, have children.
Lindsay Mitchell was also on the ball again and made this chilling comment today.

"What if this horrible business is the very result of not smacking the child. Imagine for a moment a bunch of stoned or drunk people gleefully thumbing their noses at the anti-smacking bill. They didn't say we couldn't hang her on a clothesline eh? They didn't say we couldn't put her in a tumble-dryer eh? They didn't say we couldn't put her outside in the freezing cold or on the roof eh?"

Underclass isn't a euphemism for poor - it refers to human waste that's no longer a part of our society in any meaningful sense, other than that it's on the record books and draws dole. I doubt anyone in your family has ever been in this category, Gooner. There's plenty of room for argument about how this human waste arose, and how to eradicate it, but there isn't any doubt that the perps in this case and the Kahui case are examples of it.

There's a chlamydia epidemic. Something has got to be done.
I propose asking every woman who has to go to hospital for any reason be asked how many sexual partners she has had.

Actually, I don't think that goes far enough. We can't leave this serious issue to the off-chance that people will go to hospital - we should go door-to-door and ask this very serious question.
