I left NZ in 1984 it was still legal for me to be arrested and put in prison for the pleasure of str8 criminals.
In 1988 they changed that law. But too late. What the stroke of a pen giveth the stroke of a pen taketh awayeth.
When I see fascists such as Bishop Tamaki free to spread his fascist brand of christianity with impunity I will never return to my beloved country of birth.
