Uniting the political spectrum

Air NZ and Qantas have managed the near impossible – uniting the politicial spectrum to declare they are a bunch of idiots.

Not only do you have the Greens and National both declaring how stupid it is to ban men being seated next to children on flights, one has offended men and women almost equally. The number of women who have declared that just because they have ovaries doesn’t mean they should have to be landed with kids next to them is matched by the men who really are rather offended at the suggestion they are unsafe.

Keith Locke hs referred the issue to the Human Rights Commission, and it wil be interesting to hear their response. Hopefully more sensible than the Children’s Commissioner.

The NZ Herald has a round-up of reader reaction and it is 90% negative. NZPA also has reaction from others.
