we support Paul Quinns bill to stop inmates from having a right to vote while in jail. However it looks like it needs a bit of a tidy up. Its time wasting and costly to have to revisit badly written bills so its important to get it right the first time.

Lambcut endured Andrew Geddis as a tutor in times gone by, but thought well of him. He is an irretrievable pinko, with an unhappy accent that sounds to the NZ ear, ironically like a right wing, bullet spitting Ian Paisley, with slightly greater travel experience. But in spite of this odd juxtaposition, he is pretty good at what he does. If he thinks the legislation will have an unplanned effect, it probably will. The phenomenon of legislation having the opposite of its desired effect over time is neither unfamiliar to, nor undocumented by academic lawyers. The less legislation the better, but, if we must legislate, we must take care to do it well.

On the same topic, someone on the bloggosphere queried whether there was in existence anything other than lefty law lecturers. Try James Allan or Richard Mahoney.
