    Deputy police commissioner, Wally Haumaha “unreservedly” apologises to Louise Nicholas for comments he made about her when she first reported the police group rape sessions she experienced.

    Too late?

    • Pat 1.1

      probably…although it may bring into question the consistency of redemption

    • AsleepWhileWalking 1.2

      A predictable apology.

      A rape apologist installed high up enough to influence other rape cases. I think he should go.

        Especially if he still considers those men friends!! ” Birds of a feather…..”

      • Hongi Ika 1.2.2

        Unfortunately a leopard does not change it’s spots, sounds as if he may have softened a bit but was around a sick culture at the time in NZ Police.

    • Treetop 1.3

      I am pleased that there is going to be an inquiry into the appointment of Haumaha being appointed deputy police commissioner.

      I also hope that there is not a repeat of this in the future.

      I am pleased that Louise has exposed the character of Haumaha, she is brave to do this. Such an appointment should not have happened.

      Too little, too late

    • Timeforacupoftea 2.1

      Its just criminal what the hospital boards are offering our nurses !

      Lets hope the nurses get a two year backpay on the first of August this year.

      • One Anonymous Bloke 2.1.1

        Dear Madam,

        We regret to inform you that your application to The Wormtongue Academy has been rejected. To qualify, you must demonstrate genuine talent.

        Yours sincerely,

        [insert name here]

      • Fireblade 2.1.2

        Time for a cup of tea and a lay down. The nurse will be along shortly to tuck you in.

    • Gabby 2.2

      Slick Britches will be recalculating gnats vs lab strike days because he wouldn’t want to be inaccurate or dishonest.

    • gsays 2.3

      You are right wags, it is good news.

      Here’s hoping the nurses get to hear about the offer from the union rather than through stuff, as happened last time.
      Then to add insult to injury, Helen Mason, the DHB mouthpiece, comes out with the $93,000 nurses nonsense.
      Couldn’t think of a better unifying rally cry than that.

    Why is it, that each time workers seek to improve pay or conditions someone writes an article saying how cheaply they can eat for a week.

    Anyone can cope with basics for a week!! Try it for ten years with no respite or hope.

      Whats been happening these last 10 Years!
