Sympathy or Perversity?

The South Australian Labor Party appears to have gone out in sympathy with its comrades in NZ.

They've had one of their state MPs arrested for, among other things, possession of child pornography.

Interestingly, all names are suppressed under a state law enacted some thirty five years ago wherein all names of all characters in any 'sex' related offending are suppressed until either a guilty plea or verdict has been entered.

Innocent until proven guilty may be unpleasant medecine for some but I think the cost for the few is worth the freedom for the many.

Sorry Spock.

Innocent? No Labour, supporter or voter is ever innocent!

and that ought to be a principle of black-letter law!


I read on Andrew Bolt's blog where a Labour member from the Upper House has just resigned.
Mike Rann is not having a good week.
