Ban, Tax, Inquiry. The 3 answers to any problem


The Green Party says an autistic man forced into lock-up deserves compassion, rather than being treated like a violent criminal.

Ashley Peacock’s plight has been described by the Chief Ombudsman as degrading, inhuman and cruel.

Green Party health spokesperson Kevin Hague believes his problems are only being made worse by his treatment at the hands of the Government.

“The people who have been calling for Ashley to transition out of the seclusion where he’s been held for the last five years include the Ombudsmen who have investigated that situation under their brief to deal with crimes of torture. That’s a pretty strong illustration,” says Mr Hague.

“These reports of terrible failure that are leading to people’s deaths or ruining people’s lives are coming now from all around the country. I believe Jonathan Coleman has no choice but to initiate a nationwide and urgent inquiry.”

Mr Hague says Mr Peacock is not as violent or dangerous as he is being made out to be by those keeping him in seclusion.

Why doesn’t Mr Hague just invite Ashley over for a week and see for himself?  There is a reason his own parents aren’t capable of living with him.  Ashley is one of the most challenging people to require custodial mental care.

The last thing we need is yet another taxpayers money draining inquiry, just because the Greens demand one.

Seriously?   Who made the Green Party New Zealand’s moral compass?   Oh, that’s right.  The Media Party.
