SELWYN TIMES .kiwi Tuesday March 14 2017 7 Latest Christchurch news at www. Your Local Views Bar hours not related to rape culture District councillor Craig Watson writes in response to medical officer of health Alistair Humphrey’s comments on Selwyn’s Local Policy, which was passed on Wednesday with later maximum closing hours for taverns than had initially been proposed. Dr Humphrey said that every time someone in Selwyn died in a car crash, was assaulted or raped “because someone has had that extra bit of booze at that time of night is something that I hope will weigh on the consciences of those who made that decision to push it out for an extra hour” I want to start by saying that I have not been lobbied by a single person before speaking and voting on the Local Alcohol Policy. I was disgusted to read Alistair Humphrey’s comments in the Selwyn Times (March 7). I want to tell a bit about my time as a student, training at the University of Otago in Wellington. I remember going out with mates until 1, 2, 3, 4am in the morning, heck I even remember a couple of times leaving a bar when the sun came up. I grew to appreciate the fantastic kebabs for sale on my walk back to Newtown, even if half the time I woke up with them all over my shirt the next day. I remember pole dancing with traffic lights on the way home, singing karaoke like the worst ever contestant for New Zealand’s got Talent, going for a wee in the Basin Reserve and sometimes waking up with a hell of a hangover. But what I do not remember doing on those fantastic nights out where I was drinking past 1am was raping someone. Alcohol does not make you a rapist, drugs do not make you a rapist, a girl kissing you and letting you walk her home does not make you a rapist, heck a woman wearing not much more that a Band-Aid for a dress does not permit nor make you a rapist. Not understanding what consensual sex means makes you a rapist, stupefying a woman and forcing yourself on them makes you a rapist and not understanding that no means no makes you a rapist. It is inflammatory, provocative and inaccurate that he would define that a bar closing at 2am, 3am or indeed not at all is somehow permitting a rape culture as opposed to a bar that closes at midnight, 1pm or 10pm. Dr Alistair Humphrey responds to Cr Watson In response to Craig Watson’s opinion: •In New Zealand, one half of all violent crimes involve alcohol. •10,000 sexual assaults per year in New Zealand involve a perpetrator affected by alcohol. •About half of all sexual assaults involve alcohol. •Approximately 100 New Zealanders a year die in an alcoholrelated car crash. •About half of all alcoholrelated presentations to Christchurch Hospital Emergency Department occur between 10pm and 4am, peaking at 1am. •Following New South Wales ‘lockout’ laws, which closed bars earlier, non-domestic assault was reduced by half in the Kings Cross area. Lincoln’s Bede Cordes writes about the Government’s recent confirmation that Lincoln will get a second primary school in 2019 Could the Selwyn Times or Ministry of Education please clarify and confirm that the proposed ‘new’ primary school at Lincoln as mentioned in the Selwyn Times article on March 7 is to be a new stand-alone school from the existing Lincoln Primary? Three options were put to those of us in the community who participated in a survey some time ago; those being for a new ‘stand-alone’ school, a satellite of the existing primary, or splitting the school over two sites. I expect if a board of trustees is to be elected, it will stand-alone? Could the Ministry of Education please confirm this? The Ministry of Education’s head of sector enablement and support Katrina Casey responds Following community engagement, the preferred option was a new year 1-8 primary school in the Lincoln area. The majority of participants rated this as their most preferred option. Last week, the Minister announced a new year 1-8 primary school for Lincoln, to be provisionally known as Lincoln South Primary School. Lincoln South Primary School will be a full primary school (year 1-8) and not a satellite of an existing school.
