Does “Three Strikes” reduce crime ?

Mr Bridges asked if the Three Strikes repeal was still ultimately on the table.

“This is a matter that’s off the table, for now,” Mr Peters said on behalf of Ms Ardern. “This is a government for the long term.”

Mr Bridges asked Mr Peters if the PM agreed that the Three Strikes law is the “high watermark of policy stupidity?”, quoting Mr Little’s RNZ interview.

“Every member of this parliament is entitled to their view, it’s the hall mark of a democracy,” Mr Peters said.
