I don't know anything about the house fire in Mangere that killed 4 children other than what I've seen in the media, but I thought I'd mention this in case anyone else has been entertaining the same suspicion.
In among the stories about the father's ex-wife trying not to blame him for this accident, and the bloke himself leaving his sick bed to attend the funeral, I can't shake the following thought: in my experience, falling asleep while cooking stuff after midnight is the kind of thing that happens when you're shitfaced drunk, or shitfaced drunk and stoned.
No, I'm not a very nice chap. But surely I'm not alone in being prodded by this suspicion?
