As I've said before, Michael Laws is to Paticaptory Democracy what Adolf Hilter was to Representative Democracy.
Great systems tweeked and twisted to achieve their outcome. More education & information is required for it to work, but then, whatever the out come the decisions are those put forward by Laws. Classic lose lose situation.
Not even a little chuckle Jackie?
I think the Jury is the best system and still I do my best to avoid it. Even when I've turned up, that's when I wear the suit, silk tie & bling rings. I was told to dress up or down to avoid being picked as they preffer those dressed in shades of grey. In part because I'ld find it hard to send someone to prison, but there are plenty of other petty reasons too.

Key talking to the woman complainant would have followed through on his own promise to do so. It would have showed empathy after calling his own Minister out and asking for his resignation or I'ld have sacked him for..., now what did he call his Minister out for? Key never said why he was going to sack Worth if he didn't resign, but this complaint was with the police and of a sexual nature, as I believe Key stated.
Does Scott Watson still keep the company of White Power? One to ask of the events of New Years day etc would be his helpful sister.
Much respect for Goff going to Key. Not a point scoring excercise
this was a matter of human dignity (or possibly safety).
Key hasn't done at all well and to avoid simply talking to this woman now has the smell of the Cronulla Sharks locker room around it.
The comparison with OJ is very interesting.
