The Germans and Ladies

Today is White Ribbon Day – the international day for the elimination of violence against women.

The idea is for men to put up their hand and say they will no longer tolerate that type of behaviour.

It came about because a group of Canadian men back in 1991 decided it was time for community responsibility for ending violence in personal relationships.

Nice one Germany, congratulations on your first woman Chancellor!

This shouldn’t be a big deal in the western world at least, you know equality and all that action, yet it still is.

There's so much happening in the world right now, yet here our media are heading into that period where they serve us lots of nice positive human interest stories so as not to bum us out over Christmas.... come on I think we can handle it - well as long as the All Blacks win

Anyone else but me hate the way the All Blacks are increasingly being called the AB's? I don't even like rugby but this continual abbreviated world is a real bug bear of mine, theres a time and place people in this instance and so many others its just plain lazy and stupid.
