    I actually follow NZ news quite closely after studying abroad at Otago in 2005. I am not surprised at how much interest (anger?) the law has engendered. The law basically turned good parents into criminals.

    I am a little shocked that Key is standing firm in the face of such overwhelming opposition, particularly as this seems like an issue the National Party could eat up and take advantage of.

    I am enjoying the view from NZ. Keep up the good work.
