Police file an average of 33 strangulation charges before the court every week. Just one statistic that highlights the shocking stage of family violence in New Zealand. These stats have come to light since the new strangulation offence was introduced last December. We speak to Jane Drumm from domestic violence charity Shine about the new laws. Some are calling for compulsory vaccinations In New Zealand as the measles outbreak continues. Laws introduced in California have seen the number of children without vaccines fall dramatically. The Government says it won't intervene but is it time? We ask the panellists. The seminal American MAD magazine is to cease regular publication.
