Acyually, I'd like to meet the guy but he hasn't repsonded to my pleas. I hear he has nice holiday camps out there in Siberia.

It Had to happen. NZ and Australia have so much in common, even when we are fighting it out on the rugby field, cricket ground or the netball courts. Let that continue, but it would be nice to play more sports with Russia too. Just watch them inprove with rugby.
Any report that says that child abuse has dropped by 4% is good news, but we must not take the foot off the pedal. The debate about mandatory reporting must also continue.
Placing social workers in more schools must continue and the public should be brought into any moves to further improve the situation for our families in New Zealand.
Politicians should not sit on their successes for want of a more descriptive word. The battle is far from won. It is my belief that unless the trend continues in a downward direction then the latest figures may just be a blip. Let’s hope not.
Kim.com has stated on his Twitter board that he is a bit like James Bond. Maybe his words were different but the fact remains that much of the publicity around his arrest and the subsequent battle with the courts over his extradition are just part of the overall picture. There are still many unanswered questions.
What about his immigration status and how did he achieve residency when there were ‘issues’ in his past?
What about the ‘alleged’ wrong doings on his part re his so-called business? That aspect will take a great deal of unravelling.
Then we have the spectre of the influence the US Governmental agencies on New Zealand’s security services. Have we just danced to the American piper?
If there has been an illegal response from NZ agencies,’ then that must come out and no amount of posturing on PM Key’s part will calm the issue. Quite frankly it is all one big mess; one that is possibly bringing a huge amount of mirth to Kim.com.
If you happen to be one of the businesses who have possibly been hurt or disadvantaged by the ‘alleged’ actions of Kim.com and his associates, then you will probably be feeling most frustrated at the moment. That justice is done, one way or the other must be your primary need and all of the circus-like machinations, all played upon by Kim.com will only add to how you are feeling.
Red faces will at some stage be the order of the day and justice may recede to some dim corner of the real world. The winners will not be that obvious.
