The Dominion

Rapist Tutor – Member Beyer – F16 Deal – Immigrant Tensions – Rich Health – Bottom Grab – Doull Tribute – Editorial: Stadium Failings

RAPIST TUTOR: The Dominion leads with the report a boy jailed for repeatedly raping a woman with his gang-related caregiver ran away from the Mongrel Mob member three times before the rape. Child Youth and Family brought the boy back to the member each time.

MEMBER BEYER: The Dominion’s front page photo shows the world’s first transsexual MP Georgina Beyer giving her maiden speech to Parliament yesterday. The paper reports Ms Beyer abandoned her rehearsed speech for “a speech from the heart” she giving her Beehive minders some ‘queasy moments.’

Also on the front page:

F16 DEAL: The United States was looking at ways to cut the costs of it’s F16 fighter jet deal with New Zealand in a bid to persuade the Government to stick to the multimillion-dollar contract, a well placed American confirmed yesterday. But the Prime Minister has signalled the Government will still find the lease to expensive to justify.

IMMIGRANT TENSIONS: Tensions were simmering in Hastings yesterday after two men were bashed by a group of Somalis in the third violent incident involving immigrants in less than a week.

RICH HEALTH: Rich New Zealanders will live longer then poor ones, and people who live in the country generally live longer than those in the city, unless they are Maori, a report says.

BOTTOM GRAB: Police arrested a 36-year-old man last night after a woman had her bottom grabbed by a cyclist in Wellington’s Botanic Gardens. A man is being charged with indecent assault today.

DOULL TRIBUTE: Simon Doull has paid tribute to his fitness trainer, saying that without him he woul dnot have been ready for a recall to the New Zealand cricket team to play in the first two one-day internationals against Australia.

STADIUM FAILINGS: The Dominion editorial says food and beer queues mar Wellington’s otherwise excellent WestpacTrust stadium.
