Prisons are no place for those with mental illnesses. Corrections officers shouldn't have to carry the burden of care. These prisoners need specialised care and should be in the care of health professionals, at a dedicated facility. The trouble is many were closed during the so-called neo-liberal reforms of the 1980s and 1990s and many people were pushed out into the community. A law change is needed to allow people who have committed crimes are are mentally ill to be held elsewhere other than in a prison.

Big day in parliament today. We'll have a chance to debate National's plan to have the generation who are already carrying student loans and unaffordable housing, to now carry the burden of an increased age for super, and delayed contributions to the super fund.
Oh, and we vote on the new Deputy Leader of the Labour Party today. I'll have a go at using FB live for the announcement. Wish me luck (on all counts!)

We will start at the start - in the paddock. First you come to the Sleeping Cow. These cows, generally present in large numbers when you are running late, lie sleeping at the back of their paddock and refuse to wake up and start moving towards the track. Eventually they lumber to their feet and wander off in the right direction and you can continue. Next you encounter the Invisible Cow. With no white markings, this black or dark brown cow is almost impossible to see in the dark. She knows this and stays some yards behind the rest of the herd, giving her a good chance of being missed in the mornings and remaining unmilked in the paddock. The Thirsty Cow has been waiting since she spotted you to make her move. As the herd nears a water trough, she walks over and begins drinking. She keeps her eye on you as you approach. When you get too close, she sidles around the circular trough, keeping it between her and you. After several orbits, you get off the bike and chase her away on foot. As soon as you turn your back on her to return to the bike, she tries to sneak back to the trough but this time you are too quick for her and she must rejoin the herd. The herd has left the paddock now and is on the track, moving slightly slower than cruising speed in first gear on the bike. This means you have to ride a serpentine course, weaving back and forth across the track, or risk stalling the bike. The situation is not helped by the Slow Walker, who dawdles a pace or two behind her fellow cows. She will also walk on the far side of a larger cow, hoping to stop and stay on the track without being seen. Eventually you reach the yard and close the gates behind the herd. Now the real fun starts - milking. You start the platform and the first few cows walk into their bales. Then it is the turn of the Day-Dreaming Cow. She chews her cud, placidly staring into space while empty bale after empty bale goes past her. This is most frustrating. You attempt to urge her on. She ignores you until a Helper Cow comes running down the entry race and deliberately bunts her forward onto the platform. The next challenge you face is the Cow Who Won't Get Off. She stays on the platform for round after round, long after she has been milked. Eventually you tire of seeing her come past again and again and look at her bale number. Next time she is at the exit race you stop the platform and press the button marked "cow off". A jet of water squirts her from above and she scurries backwards and trots away. The slight commotion sends the Cup Kicker into action. She kicks until her cups fall off, then turns her head to watch them sucking air loudly on the platform behind her. You stop the platform again and walk around to recup her. She stares at you with her large dark eyes, silently threatening to kick her cups off again as soon as you leave her. Order is, however, restored until you get a Backwards Cow. This cow is one of the more disruptive types. She comes along the entry race backwards and cannot turn before entering her bale. Obviously she can't be milked if she's backwards, so you must stop the platform and try to convince her to go back out to the yard and turn around. She is co-operative, but the other cows in the yard have already crowded down the entry race and will not back up. You give up the struggle and let her come on backwards. She looks faintly surprised to be facing out instead of in, and moos loudly all the time she's in the shed. As a final test, you now have to deal with a Crazy Heifer. This cow doesn't like getting on the platform, or being milked, or being touched. You have to be very gentle and calm around her or she will kick you. Other tricks in her repertoire include jumping into her neighbour's bale, turning around in her bale (which should be impossible), and jumping over the front of her bale and walking around the narrow race at the inner edge of the platform.
