Peter Ellis
Letter to the Editor
by N Seear

For Mark Peck to suggest that it is a political move on the part of normal, clear-thinking people to put their good names on a petition to Parliament, simply suggests to me that he is incapable of rationale.

Anybody who seriously thinks that Peter Ellis is guilty of harming children should certainly not try and change their image of "an old (useless) shoe," and definitely stay being ineffectual on the back bench.

As for his cohort Justice Minister Phil Goff, he is closing his eyes and ears to another miscarriage of justice, the grossly maligned David Bain who not only lost his whole family but his freedom as well.

It is beyond belief.
