Who is Andrew Little? Does Andrew Little prepare properly?

Looking over Andrew Little’s career leads to a big question about how he prepares.

He appears not to give much consideration to radical changes to systems or processes with centuries old precedent.

The prime example is as Justice spokesman he wanted to change the burden of proof to the offender, not the accuser.

Arts, lifestyle and travel blogger David “Pinko” Farrar took a break from his hectic travel schedule and posted a cutting post when Little released the policy.

Meet your next Justice Minister people. The Herald reports:

Labour’s justice spokesman Andrew Little did not think the party’s proposal would lead to more innocent people being convicted.

“I don’t see why. You’re assuming that there is a propensity to lay false complaints. There is no evidence pointing to that.”   

So Labour’s next Justice Minister thinks that an accusation is all you need to convict someone, as there are no false complaints.

Why doesn’t he go the whole hog, and save us the expense of trials. You’re accused, and you’re automatically guilty. Bang.

Again I urge everyone to make sure people understand that if Labour is elected, you will need to prove your innocence if you have sex with someone and are accused of rape.

David Cunliffe has started to back away from the policy, but Andrew Little has confirmed it is official policy and is obviously still extremely wedded to it.

I would have thought Mr Little would not have to think too far back in Labour’s recent past to think of how stupid it is to have a presumption of guilt based on allegation.

I am staggered that this policy got approved by the Labour Party. It is horrendous and wrong. Unless they rule it out totally, then don’t vote for them if you believe in the presumption of innocence.

Lets remember Andrew Little is a lawyer. He should know better than to monkey around with the very foundations of our legal system. Someone should ask Little whether he still believes in this policy, or if he has worked out that this was an ill prepared and ill thought out policy that needs to be dumped immediately.

Going further, it is hard to imagine one of the richest sources of donations for the left, trial lawyers, approving of this ill thought out fundamental change to our legal system.

Presumably this is still Labour policy, and even more so now Andrew Little is leader.

I wonder if the mainstream media will be brave enough to follow up on this “little” gem?
