Gil El­liott’s 2011

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS -

None re­ally. Les­ley and I not only have each other to think about, but also our sons who are griev­ing for their sis­ter. We will prob­a­bly sell up at some stage, but at this stage, we are not sure where we’ll end up or what the fu­ture will hold.

That is a bit of a mis­nomer, be­cause re­ally noth­ing, al­though both of us will carry on with So­phie’s legacy, as we call it.

Les­ley will con­tinue to talk to year 13 girls (es­pe­cially) about the dangers of abu­sive re­la­tion­ships and what to do about them. I will con­tinue to deal with ‘‘anom­alies’’ within the crim­i­nal jus­tice sys­tem. The Min­is­ter of Jus­tice, Simon Power, has al­ready made a start on re­form and I want to con­tinue to of­fer ideas and en­cour­age­ment to the Govern­ment with the help of the Sen­si­ble Sen­tenc­ing Trust.
