Suicide Statistics released

I have been reading about the release of the latest Suicide Statistics by the Chief Coroner.

Unfortunately it appears that the statistics seem to still be a secret and the MSM are simply reporting the bits they like.

I would have thought that in the interests of discussion properly the details of what has been released that they should be released more widely.

I finally found a link on the SPINZ website to the overview released today. It was in .doc format so I took the liberty of downloading it and making it a pdf.

Until I can get the full report this will have to do. I don;t want to put any spin on it, just let people read for themselves.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
