Makes her supporters look like fools.

 

 

Using this logic, how many times has Labour made "fools" of Labour supporters then? 

 

I think you are being silly. 

 

Being a supporter of someone doesn't mean you think everything they do is correct. 

 

 

 

 

I think you're being silly. That's a serious "whataboutism" fail.

It does seem odd to me that France haven't adopted an age of consent (though they have tightened up the law).

 

 

Yes, this concerns me as well. 

 

I haven't read up on the reasoning, but I am struggling to see a downside for setting one.

 

 

Do you guys know how to use google?

 

Or would you rather just keep entertaining me?

Go on - admit it.  Collins goofed badly - and now several posters in this forum want to deflect blame elsewhere.

I don't care for Collins either way, so that blows that logic out of the water. I was mocking your ridiculous supposition that her "mistake" was a reflection of her supporters.

I said it makes them look like fools, which in context it certainly does. 

 

You've even taken the bait and "believed" the fake news she posted - and appear to have been too damned lazy to fact check it.

I am worried about Labours continued refusal to acknowledge the validity of the dent they have put into business confidence.

 

I do think a another Financial Crisis is coming. I am pretty fearful of how this Government will help New Zealand weather the storm.

I had read up on it.  Still don't get it - hence my comment.  I'm not very familiar with the French legal system but it seems to me they will have to argue a person is too young to consent on a case by case basis. That's a real worry considering some of the cultural contexts within France.

 

I prefer our approach, which has clear lines in the sand as starting points.

Lost for words.

 

Domestic Violence Victims are now entitled to an extra 10 days paid leave. (covered by their employer!?!?) Also they are entitled to flexible working conditions as well.

 

Claims for paid leave under this new legislation may also be for incidents of domestic violence relating to periods prior to the Employee's employment with their current Employer.

IANAL - but I don't think there's much difference between French and NZ law.  Rape is considered a more serious offense than having sex under the age of consent - though that could be rape as well - thus a more serious charge.  Say if you had a 16YO daughter, and she had sex with a 15YO boy, would you think it was good if she faced say a 15 year minimum sentence for "statutory" rape - or should a court (or prosecutor) exercise discretion on a lesser charge?  I don't believe it's a simple argument with a simple answer.

It has nothing to do with which party implemented it, I would be just as gob smacked if National had proposed it.

 

Perhaps you could control yourself long enough to realize not every critism of policy is a direct attack on Labour/Coalition because of "bias".

 

Fat chance.

Then why did you post it in the Jacinda thread?

Domestic violence is a big problem in NZ and just to make matters worse we throw finacial hardship at the victims. This sort of measure wont stop violence but will help rehabilitation a lot.
