Boobs on bikes


Boobs on bikes is happening on Friday in Wellington and it looks like it will be a good day for it. Gordon Copeland has just put out a media release that calls on Parliament to step in and stop the parade. He said he would support an amendment to the Summary Offences Act to deem such parades " offensive".

Copeland is an MP. If he was so serious about this he would have written a bill years ago after the first boobs on bikes parade in Auckland. He still has time to write one and lodge it before the weekend. He should do so if he is serious.Copeland has been concerned about parades such as boobs on bikes for years. Empty words and complaining by press release mean nothing. You don't change the law by issuing media releases - you do it by amending legislation. Bills are one way of changing legisalation.

Why hasn't Copeland lodged a bill in the ballot that would amend the Summary Offences Act? Because it hasn't been written, that's why. And you know what the next question is.
