And they wonder why no one takes them seriously

Labour is constantly worrying and fretting that the New Zealand electorate isn’t taking them seriously. LIttle wonder when their star number 4, Jacinda Ardern thinks the solution to Maori killing their kids is cross-party talks:

Labour’s social development spokeswoman Jacinda Ardern said she did not want to comment specifically on Hinekawa’s case while the investigation was continuing, but speaking broadly about the issue of child abuse, she reiterated Labour’s call for more cooperation across Parliament to tackle the problem.

“We know that our child abuse stats in New Zealand are appalling, we know we have an enormous issue that we need to be dealing with. I don’t believe we need another inquiry to tell us what we already know, we need action.”

The Government announced last year that it would set up a ministerial committee to look at the issue of child poverty, and Ms Ardern said with poverty and abuse being so inter-linked, the group could be an opportunity for parties to work together.

“We’ve asked the Government to allow us to be a part of that group … as yet the Government hasn’t taken us up on that offer but we’ll keep making it,” Ms Ardern said.

So she doesn’t want an inquiry, instead she wants “more cooperation” whatever that means.

Ultimately it is all futile because until people start to understand that killing their kids is wrong it will keep on happening. I’ll be you a dollar to a knob of goat poo that Labour’s solution involves chucking more cash at poor people. If money was the solution to all these problems then we would have solved them when we passed the first billion spend.
