Does Jamie Whyte play banjo?

Jamie Whyte has had his Colin Craig moment and suggested that the state has no business in regulating the sex lives of adults even if they are relatives.

Perhaps he has sought cross party support from the two senior MPs in the House who are currently f*cking their cousins.

The Herald reports:

New Act Leader Jamie Whyte is standing by his comments that incestuous relationships between consenting adults should not be illegal and says it would be “intellectually corrupt” of him not to be honest when asked such questions.

In an article published on?The Ruminator?website, former philosophy lecturer Dr Whyte was asked whether the state should intervene if adult siblings wanted to marry each other.

“Well personally, I don’t think they [the State] should”, he replied, adding it was “a matter of almost no significance because it just doesn’t happen”.

Dr Whyte told the Herald his response was based on his belief that: “I don’t think the state should intervene in consensual adult sex or marriage, but there are two very important elements here – consensual and adult”. ?

“I wonder who does believe the state should intervene in consensual adult acts?”

He said he was “very opposed” to incest.

“I find it very distasteful I don’t know why anybody would do it but it’s a question of principle about whether or not people ought to interfere with actions that do no harm to third parties just because they personally wouldn’t do it.”

He did not believe the increased risk of congenital disorders in children from incestuous relationships was a valid reason for it to illegal.

With the support of at least two MP in other parties, or 1.6% of parliament this may well be a good ploy to hoover up the feral deliverance vote in Palmerston North and the West Coast.
