@ Get Real - I'm pretty sure you know where I went with that previous post. The situation with Maori over-representation in prisons is not one of systemic racism. And as the moderators are so oft to remind us.... not the topic either.

@lucabrasi - I don't have to explain: Even at 7 years old he is beginning to answer that question for himself.

So very, very happy that my son is being raised in New Zealand. No one calls half, or double, or asks him about his appearance, it's just a non-issue. English is is first language, rugby his first sport; Japan a place we visit for log periods. I hope never has to feel the weight of Japan's systemic racism.

the lawyer is probably not much of a human being - but he IS a defense lawyer and his jo is to do anything he can to defend his client; that is how he makes his living. The NZ justice system (like so much of NZ) is extremely fair and equitable. This story only came to light (it likely happens often in NZ courts) because the county is following a high-profile case of police (a hopelessly boy's own lad's brigade) non-action in a string of organised youth-involved statutory rape cases.

Yes, at a systemic level Japan is racist

yikes! Not one for the scrapbook. Katy needs to make a point to ALWAYs wear one of those short, tight T-shirts in a photo... It's basically her only real talent.

As I indicated above, ad have subsequently been proven right, there s no RATIONAL case for MJ prohibition. Legal, economic, equitable and common-sense arguments all support legalisation. The "war on Drugs" has been an unmitigated disaster in every sense. Time has come to introduce a regulatory framework around these products.

One can't hide from how poor the ABs were in their execution of rugby basics yesterday. They would be extremely disappointed with their efforts. Their discipline was poor and several of the younger, inexperienced players have done their reputations no good at all. Ben Franks, Tawera Kerr-Barlow, Thrush... will not make it through to 2015RWC; they are not AB calibre pure and simple.
A word on the ref. Poor. Far too many mistakes and a poor feel for the game of rugby, with pedantic and irrelevant rulings that killed momentum.

without a shadow of a doubt it should be legalised and regulated. There is not a single rational reason for a prohibition on cannabis

Totally disagree. D Bird is clearly an up and coming star of NZ locks and will almost certainly be in the 2015 RWC squad. Toomaga-allen was picked in last year's end of year tour but didn't tour as injured. He is immense around the field one the country's best running props with great soft hands. L Whtielock has the DNA and may ye mature into a good player... a couple more season will let us know. They mightn't make the team right now - but Bird will soon be NZ's No.4 lock - No doubt!

Excellent player that Ono. Moved to NZ at 3 and was rugby educated at ChCh Boy's High. One of the top Rugby schools in the world.

The All Black's No. 10 that should probably read.... Plus, in NZ the position is called 1st 5/8th, which is it's correct name afterall.
