Judges have done worse and got away with it

FAMILIES APART REQUIRE EQUALITY (FARE)

18 February 2002: For immediate release

PRESS RELEASE

Judges have done worse and got away with it

"Judges every day do far worse things than look at nude pictures, and they get way with it", Families Apart Require Equality (FARE) spokesperson Darryl Ward said today. He was referring to the reporting to Cabinet by the Attorney General of the circumstances surrounding a Judge who had viewed erotic sites on the Internet.

"Every day we have many families needlessly torn apart because of Judges' biased interpretations of family law. Thousands of children every year have one of their parents, usually their father, removed from their lives for no good reason. These actions affect real people in tangible ways and destroy the lives of real children and real families. Yet these Judges do not have their personal details splashed across the media, and these Judges are not bought to the attention of Cabinet".

"This latest fiasco is even more proof that the Government is far more concerned about maintaining political correctness and following extreme feminist orthodoxy than it is about improving the welfare of children and families", concluded Ward.
