      Have these people no shame? Come to think of it perhaps regional transport could be fitted with testicle and fanny friendly seats given some people may be one; the other or both?

      Adding insult to injury I clicked on one of these links and got this:

      ”I am proud to announce that Swe last year passed a law, stating that sex without consent is rape, even when there are no threats or violence involved. Sex must be based on consent!”- fr my speech in the @SheDecidesGFI event in #CSW63”

      Wow, that is so progressive.

        You’ll have to carry a form or have someone send you a confirmed consent via an application for nooky app on your mobile, tablet or laptop next. Even if you’re out doing dinner and a movie.

          I do hope both sexes are equally charged with rape if appropriate forms are not signed and submitted for official approval beforehand.

            Everybody will end up videoing themselves for proof it was consensual if there’s any claim otherwise at a later date when one of them becomes rich as sin. There’ll be standing room only at court.

              They probably do already for other reasons.

              Or Swedes will die out.

      Probably JAG thinks women are shit drivers who are constantly distracted by their phones and needs to find a reason why this is mens fault.

    Few surprises here.The methods of subterfuge are interesting though. One surprise is using Simon Bridges former role as a government minister to highlight OIA obfuscation. Great timing.

    Māngere murder: Police hunt for Arthur Brown’s killer

    One of the better police media briefings I’ve seen, in terms of information given out.
