Book tour delights Alexander

United Future’s law and order spokesman Marc Alexander is absolutely delighted with the success of his current nationwide tour, promoting his book Justice with Both Eyes Open, recommending radical changes to the country’s criminal justice system.

“From the beginning of May last year to the end of April this year, I will have given at least 4 television interviews, 10 newspaper interviews, 12 radio interviews, and addressed 20 public meetings and 30 Rotary Club meetings from Kaitaia to Bluff,” he said.

“With United Future’s strong insistence on the rights of the victims of crime against the rights of the criminals, I am discovering a deep wellspring of concern among ordinary Kiwis about the level of violence and crime in our community.

“This strong demand from middle New Zealand for intelligent and innovative solutions to the problems of crime in New Zealand is reflected in excellent sales of the book,” said Mr Alexander.

Copies of Justice with Both Eyes Open can be ordered from Hazard Press for $39.95 per copy.
