    Nah, I think she should take Chris Cahill's job over.

    Yes, sadly it comes from the Harold, but the writer has some credentials and valid points. Not that the gubbinment or police hierarchy will acknowledge these salient points.

    An interesting article and nice to see an alternative take on the current form of law enforcement.

    I thought similarly.

    Oddly that article seemed to have upset someone at the Harold, since I attempted to post the link but the entire article had disappeared. Lots of searches wouldn't show it again, but later in the day it re-surfaced.
    "Officialdom" not taking kindly to a differing point of view?

    A well written article:

    Fines linked to earnings, and idea!

    No results from the Fin's, no reduction in the NZ numbers of fines issued!

    Yet! Undeniably something is working as the toll is trending down, (for now anyway).

    Actually a stupid idea.
    It would, once again, be a tax on the middle classes. The wealthy would have their accountants deal with it or have the family trust in place, so their earnings would be essentially zero.

    It sounds so stupid Liarbour will definitely put it in place.

    The politics of envy. The objective isn't road safety, it's punishing rich pricks for being rich. Definitely a growing trend too, we've already got dramatically increased subsidies for "underprivileged" breeding, housing and health care.

    The fact that it doesn't work is beside the point. I read a piece a couple weeks ago that demonstrated that the first year's free tertiary education "initiative" is going to benefit far more higher income families simply because they'll take advantage of it. The whole theory that lower income families' kids are disadvantaged through lack of higher education is based on the assumption that the reason for it is the already 80% subsidised cost of that education.

    Are we not lucky we live in NZ and can debate such.

    Stupid is as stupid does:

    Maybe you could define reason and objectivity! as for National/Liarbour ( I guess you meant to spell it this way)why not do away with the party system, people stand get elected, then the elected go into a cave and elect a leader, if not done within a week, they are all fired and the process starts again:


    Why not euthanasia all the rich, all the poor, all the politicians, all the lawyers, all the bankers, all the police, all academics, all the elderly, the sick, all the drug addicts, all that drain our taxes!

    Heck why not just do away with society and its rules?

    Shit if we're really lucky the Don might yet level the sphere, and we can all start again from cockroaches!

    Yep I too can come up with stupid .

    (as long as Im last man standing)

    Now as for speeding, ( speeding, in a hurry, being impatient), the young Blond Witch in a blue NIssan at the intersection of Fitzherbert ave and college street yesterday afternoon:

    I proceeded across the intersection on a Green light, she run a red, turning right, (to my left) if I had not hit the brakes my left hand truck light would have been in her left hand door, seated beside which was a blond girl aged about 3-4, not in a car seat, when I hit the horn, she flips me the bird!
    And these things breed and live among us!
    Do the kid a favor and give her to someone that deserves and will love her, the mother I presume, take out to the bush and double tap her behind the ear.

    process all the dead people into Green Food Pills, and feed to the populace, reminiscent of that political movie "Soylent Green".
