Grrr just saw what Lance O’Sullivan has said about getting young children out of dysfunctional homes and I am so so angry. From the sounds of it every one of those dysfunctional families is full of victims of abuse, which makes them the responsibility of ACC and the NZ government. Blaming them for dysfunction that I know is borne of neglect and trauma is disgusting.
I know for a fact these people are not receiving huge amounts of treatment, care rehabilitation and justice under ACC law. Then there is the lack of legal representation and justice, on top of often being in substandard inappropriate unsafe housing – housing disabled people (which these people are) is the responsibility of the government under law. Currently ACC, health and welfare agencies are violating UN Disability laws, Human Rights and Civil and Political Rights as well. They are also violating Bill of Rights, Health, Disability and Human Rights laws.
We would not be having these issues if we had a country like we did 30 years ago, like the currently successful – HAPPY – Nordic countries like Denmark are enjoying. No instead we have GPs coming out with rubbish like this – and he is so influential. Just another reason for the self-righteous rich bigots of NZ to despise the poor and vulnerable.
I also can’t see how this approach follows Whare Tapa Wha, I thought it was a cultural thing to spend time with your children when they were young.
All I see are a group of abused children, who are now dysfunctional adults, due to 30 years of neo-liberals cutting services and care to the poorest most vulnerable people while advancing the wants of the rich.
I am ashamed and disgusted in what this country has become.
I am trying to get hold of Susie Nordqvist – the journalist who did the story – but you know journalists they don’t make it easy. Have sent a comment through the TV3 website extremely critical of O’Sullivan and explaining what people are entitled to. I want to meet with O’Sullivan and show him what people are entitled to and not getting!
Check out my solutions page – that company I created is what people are entitled to – so why aren’t they getting it. Why has so much been shut down, especially those providing care to abused women and children. Our government is corrupt and those people working in ACC, mental health and welfare who are perpetrating this gross miscarriage of just are not better than NAZIs.
Sitting beside me is my copy of the Human Rights Act 1993 Part 1A – Discrimination by Government, related persons and bodies, or persons or bodies acting with legal authority.
20J Acts or omissions in relation to which this Part applies
(1) This part applies only in relation to an act or omission of a person or body referred to in section 3 of NZ Bill of Rights Act 1999 (See my Bill of Rights Page) namely-
(a) the legislative, executive or judicial branch of Government of New Zealand; or
(b) a person or body in the performance of any public function, power or duty conferred or imposed on that person or body by or pursuant to law.
What this means folks is if disabled mentally injured and mentally ill people are not being given the health care and justice they are entitled to under the law then that is against the law and punishable by criminal law (Section 157 of the Crimes Act to be precise).
How can the intelligent people in New Zealand let this go on – there is no way I am the only one who knows this stuff – I wonder how many journalists know it and refuse or are not allowed to deal with it.
I am going to go to an international news agency, the only way our news media and government are going to deal with this is a wakeup from outside. Aussie journalists are always up for a good reason to put NZ down and fight the good fight.
