Recent events, highlighting our national habit of toddler-killing, have provoked widespread outrage, much of which has been aired in public.

Perhaps, like many otherwise normal people, you have yet to put out a press release on the subject. Don't worry - Scoop is here to help you.

As a service to our readers we have reproduced - completely free of charge - the offical template for outraged press releases about child abuse.

Now, for the first time, you too can join the usual suspects and multi-choose your way to the opinion pages.

We hope this will help our nation finish venting at the horrible maltreatment of this lot of children before the media notices another one.

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
