He did. And they did.

The deputy PM of New Zealand is Winston Peters. It will come as a great surprise to HIM and HIS wife that according to you he is a female.

As to the rest of your post the accused will face court as per the normal practice.


#1750

I am not sure whether NZ has trials with a judge only; we certainly have them in WA.


#1751

Undue influence in the legal process.


#1752

Please provide the link to what was actually said.


#1753

She’s your viceroy.


#1754

Are you referring to lizzie?


#1755

Pardon me all to Hell … I missed the word “deputy.” :roll_eyes:

Whatever. Your archaic British form of government is a mystery to me even after decades of watching PBS shows. It’s like watching cliques of kids on the school grounds argue. It’s no wonder the PM just dictates how she wants things done.

If he will face a court, why is he pronouncing sentence now? In America that would be called poisoning the jury pool.


#1756

No-one has pronounced a sentence; that can only happen once the accused faces a court trial and is found guilty. In Western Australia we can have judge trials with no jury. I am not sure whether that is the case in NZ.

There are many aspects of the US system that would not be allowed in the UK. For example subjudice applea in the UK. Aas soon as a case goes to trial all reporting has to stop except for facts relating to the case. When I first moved to the US i was surprised that talk radio and political commentators were discussing thei opinions of cases currently at trial. But I accept that might cause first amendments issues here.


#1758

Yes sub judice seems to be a foreign concept in the USA


#1759

“New Zealand’s deputy prime minister said the accused terrorist would spend the rest of his life in prison in isolation.


#1760

Government leaders pronouncing guilt and stating the sentence before a trial is a foreign concept in the US.


#1761

That has nothing to do with the statements made by the deputy prime minister.


#1762

:rofl::rofl::rofl::rofl::+1:


#1763

Trump has done it repeatedly.


#1764

Yes he has. So we have proven that this person is no better than Trump.


#1765

In this case, yes.


#1766

I like it when we agree. Respect.


#1767

And you guys went ballistic every time.
