    Women’s rights , childrens’ rights have been made a BIG DEAL by the new government recently , Jacinda Arden and the Labour Party have been championing them and waving the flag and leading the charge

    ….so why, unlike Australia and other countries , is the Labour Party and Jacinda Ardern deliberately and against all opposition by those abused as children ,excluding an examination of abuse by religious institutions?

    … particularly the Catholic Church which has long opposed and undermined the rights of women and been at the forefront of the abuse of children

    …even Catholics are speaking out:

    ‘Vatican ‘in fear’ of NZ abuse inquiry – whistleblower’

    “An international Catholic whistleblower says the Vatican will be “quaking in fear” in case the New Zealand Catholic Church is included in an inquiry into state abuse. The government has repeatedly stated it wants to leave Churches and other non-state institutions out of the upcoming Royal Commission into abuse. Father Tom Doyle of Virginia in the United States, says that will suit New Zealand’s bishops and priests very well. The one-time canon lawyer first blew the whistle on the global abuse scandal in 1984 and his work featured in the Academy Award-winning film Spotlight. He told reporter Phil Pennington that of the dozen-plus abuse inquiries he’s been involved in, he’s never seen one that’s limited like New Zealand’s. The communications advisor to the New Zealand Catholic Bishops, Amanda Gregan, says she is not aware if the Vatican has told local Bishops not to lobby to be included in the Royal Commission. RNZ has had no response to repeated requests for New Zealand Cardinal John Dew to publicly state whether he will ask the Government to do this.”

    (If the Labour Party persists with this policy of excluding religious institutions from examination by the Royal Commission into abuse , it will be a stain on the shiny glossy new Labour led government which will last. People and voters will perceive hypocrisy .

    Elections are not just won on a positive affirmative vote ( of which the Left has a slim majority)…but they are lost by those who ,perceiving hypocrisy, injustice and corruption, choose not to vote. There are many apathetic non- voters in New Zealand…people who in the past would have voted Labour and are lost to the Left.

    Why is the Labour Party protecting the Catholic Church and other religious institutions from examination in the Royal Commission abuse inquiry ?….This is so NOT serving the interests of NZ women and children !

    …Is it a question of money?

    …Is it a question of donations to the Labour Party by the Catholic Church and other religious institutions?

    … Where are the loyalties of the Labour MPs?

    Questions need to be asked and answered …at the moment it is incomprehensible )
