What ever you do don't mention the war

New Zealand is becoming very Fawlty Towers-esque, especially when it comes to dismal Maori statistics.

The latest episode seems to be TV3 editing away some comments from  Christchurch physician Sue Bagshaw on last Monday's 60 Minutes current affairs show where they  cut a large chunk of her interview when she said Maori culture was a major reason for New Zealand's high teenage pregnancy rates.

In another example of Labours amazing run for the top half of the OECD stats show that New Zealand has the third highest teenage pregnancy rate in the OECD, but Bagshaw said Pakeha rates were similar to those in Europe. The rate for Maori teenagers was much higher. Young Maori women were also less likely to have abortions and the Maori teen birth rate was nearly five times higher than Europeans.
