When will New Zealand's gutless politicians and Judiciary wake up and smell the roses and do something like this with our crims??

They never will. Until it happens to a politicians or judges family nothing will happen in NZ. It will be wet bus tickets all the way..

That sort of treatment for foreigners is all very well. Almost unbelievably, in that far away land the offender would not be allowed to have his drivel read out, and he wouldn't even get compliments from the judiciary on his appearance.

Thank goodness we have such an enlightened attitude (http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10778835) here. Yeah, Right.

There are times one could wonder if the phrase "Ship of Fools" was invented just to cover a system that can permit this style of behaviour by officials.
