Cunliffe sorry for being a man

don’t think you could make this up. The Herald reports:

Labour leader David Cunliffe says he’s sorry that he’s a man because commit most family violence.

He told a Women’s Refuge forum in Auckland today that Labour would put an extra $15 million a year into refuges and other groups supporting the victims of family violence. But he started his speech with an apology.

“Can begin by saying I’m sorry,” he said.

don’t often say it. I’m sorry for being a man right now, because family and sexual violence is perpetrated overwhelmingly by against women and children.

look forward to David Cunliffe also apologising on Day for being a European, and apologising on World Poverty day for living in a leafy suburb and being rich …

Mr said he was not sorry for being a man, saying “It’s a pretty silly comment from David Cunliffe”.

“The problem isn’t being a man, the problem is if you’re an abusive man. think it’s a bit insulting to imply that all are abusive.

Indeed.
