I have to admit that if you'd told me I'd read an article this morning by John Banks that would stop and make me think, I wouldn't have believed you.

However - well written and well argued, it is always good when someone writes a thoughtful well reasoned article and I respect him for that.

Poor bugger he had a horrible childhood I think at one time both his parents were in the slammer.
Shows how you are brought up may not be always be an excuse for poor people to become crooks.
I normally have a low tolerance for non drinkers but in this occasion I can see why he didnt drink.
Right about Bairds road I have had nightmares where I had broken down in Otara and get attacked.
