John Key: No need for conscience vote on Easter Sunday tradingStuff co.nz 22 August 2016Family First Comment: Sad. National MPs being whipped to vote for Easter trading law changes.Prime Minister John Key denies National MPs should be allowed a conscience vote on Easter Sunday trading, saying the current rules are “mad” and local councils should make the decisions.Family First has joined former All Black Michael Jones in encouraging National MPs to buck their party’s line and vote down the Shop Trading Hours Amendment Bill, which would allow councils to decide whether or not shops could open on Easter Sunday.Key said he did not think the proposed law should be treated as a conscience issue, as it was about allowing local councils to decide whether shops could open, rather than forcing a nationwide change.“You’re never going to get a resolution to this through parliament…the only way you’re going to resolve it is for the local communities to be masters of their own destiny, and that is not a conscience matter.”Current MPs Chester Borrows, Bill English, Sam Lotu-Iiga, Tim Macindoe and Jonathan Young all voted against McClay’s bill, which was defeated by 62 votes to 59.Key claimed the bills were different, saying: “That was specifically for Easter trading, this is about the right of the community to decide that and councils to decide that.”In fact, a Cabinet paper about the current Easter Sunday bill notes that it was “based on Hon Todd McClay’s Member’s Bill from 2009”.Key said many shops already defied the trading restrictions, which were already inconsistent in different parts of the country.“Where the current laws are set is mad, because if you go down the road from, where I live, you want to turn left at the top of my street, you hit Newmarket and you can’t trade over [Easter]…you go right and you are, because you’re in Parnell and Parnell is deemed to be a tourism hub and Newmarket wasn’t.”The proposed law was a chance to find a solution where previous attempts had failed, he said.Family First national director Bob McCoskrie said National MPs should be allowed a conscience vote “in the interests of fairness”, given that had been the case in the past.“We’re not sure why this conscience vote has been stripped from National MPs – perhaps it’s simply because they know the bill will be defeated, and it is a government bill and so that’s embarrassing.”McCoskrie said Key had been “pummeled” with over 300 emails from those against Easter Sunday trading, after a Family First campaign.“We’re trying to give some strength to the arm of those National MPs who believe it should be a conscience vote: we’re trying to say look, there is public support for you having the right to use your conscience.”‘THEY’RE NOT SOLVING THE PROBLEM’Economic concerns should not always take precedent over “family occasions” like Easter and Christmas, he said.“We compare it to a public park: it’s a piece of land that could be much better used perhaps, you could argue, for housing developments, but we have those parks because they add to the quality of the community, and we’re saying that public holidays and traditions add to the quality of society.”It was likely that employees who wanted the day off would come under pressure to work, while the bill would give “a hospital pass” to councils by leaving them in charge of the final decision.“The irony is that they’re not actually solving the problem – the perceived problem is inconsistency around the country and this will just continue the inconsistency, because you’ll have different councils saying yes and different councils saying no.”http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/83419369/John-Key-No-need-for-conscience-vote-on-Easter-Sunday-trading?cid=app-iPhoneKeep up with family issues in NZ.

US captain Steve Stricker and Europe counterpart Padraig Harrington agreed it would be better to wait than stage a Ryder Cup without spectators. “When you think of the Ryder Cup, you think of the distinctive atmosphere generated by the spectators, such as around the first tee at Le Golf National two years’ ago,” Harrington said. “If that cannot be responsibly recreated at Whistling Straits in September, then it is correct that we all wait until it can be.” Stricker, a Wisconsin native, agreed, saying, “While it is disappointing the Ryder Cup won’t be played this year, the decision to reschedule is the right thing to do under the circumstances. Now we have the opportunity to showcase the event as it was meant to be seen.” Both sides will examine how rosters will be assembled, with Europe’s qualifying process frozen until January 2021, Harrington saying golfers should not feel extra pressure to play now given COVID-19 issues. The return to odd-numbered years means Bethpage Black near New York will host in 2025 and the 100th anniversary edition of the Ryder Cup will be played at Ireland’s Adare Manor in 2027. The Presidents Cup change means the US PGA’s Wells Fargo Championship will be played next year at Quail Hollow but move to TPC Potomac in suburban Washington DC in 2022 while the team event is played at the Charlotte, North Carolina, layout.

The Masters was rescheduled from April to November while the PGA Championship switched from May to August and the US Open moved from June to September. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 This year’s Ryder Cup golf showdown between Europe and the United States was postponed to 2021 on Wednesday, becoming the latest major sports event disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic. The PGA of America, Ryder Cup Europe and the US PGA Tour announced the 43rd edition of the biennial matches, which had been set for Whistling Straits in Wisconsin on September 25-27, will instead be staged on September 24-26, 2021. Safety concerns rose as COVID-19 cases continue to soar across the United States and no one involved wanted to stage a Ryder Cup without the passionate crowds whose cheers and songs animate an atmosphere unique in golf. “As disappointing as this is, our mandate to do all we can to safeguard public health is what matters most,” PGA of America chief executive officer Seth Waugh said. “The spectators who support both the US and European sides are what make the Ryder Cup such a unique and compelling event and playing without them was not a realistic option.” A planned 2021 Presidents Cup between a US squad and the non-European Internationals team at Quail Hollow will be delayed until September 22-25, 2022, with a Ryder Cup in Rome pushed back a year to 2023. The postponement is the first for the Ryder Cup since 2001, when September 11 terrorist attacks upon New York and Washington prompted the matches to be delayed a year. The Cup also went unplayed from 1939-1945 due to World War II. Holders Europe will keep for another year the trophy won in France in 2018. The worldwide COVID-19 outbreak has prevented spectators from attending golf events, including US PGA Tour tournaments, after its return in June from a three-month shutdown. Guidance from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as well as state and local officials prompted the decision, with health considerations the top priority. “Our medical experts and the public authorities in Wisconsin could not give us certainty that conducting an event responsibly with thousands of spectators in September would be possible,” Waugh said. “Given that uncertainty, we knew rescheduling was the right call.” – ‘Right thing to do’ – World number one Rory McIlroy of Northern Ireland and fellow four-time major champion Brooks Koepka of the United States were among top players who did not want a Ryder Cup without fans.
