Lyndon Hood - mad anyway, Lower Hutt

Wednesday, June 01, 2005

I can't bring myself not to post about the Greens - conditional - support of Goff's prisoner compenation-that-you-can't-actually-have bill.

No Right Turn points out that they're basically stopping things getting any worse. Guess he's right. Good on them.

I want to be all like, Grr, politics. But I think I really mean, Grr, social and political climate.

And I don't think it's a climate that's actually conducive to work on victim's issues (as distinct from just punishing prisoners) or rehabilitation. These somehow don't seem compatible with the hang-em-high approach.

So I can't see much progress being made before the Green's sunset clause kicks in.
