How to make them utterly irrelevant......


What a message it would send to labour, the greens, the commisars at the standard, and to the shrinking number of kiwis who supported the clark government, if John Boscowan's amendment to S59 was passed.


Another piece of their odious legislation tossed in the bin confirming once and for all that the last nine years have been the equivalent of a handbrake on the wheels of New Zealand's progress.

And with respect to bradford's bill, what has it achieved? " Now our babies will be safe" she said.
Umm no sue, people are still killing them, but now Joe and Jess Average are criminals for smacking Johnny on the arse for his misdemeanours. I believe that this was the green's plan all along and the depth of sue's silence on the parade of beaten and bashed kids since the bill was passed, being inversely proportional to the lioness - like intensity with which she attacks the legislation's critics as it is, only confirms my suspicions.

I personally believe the Burrows amendment had merit, but am about to do some investigation into the Australian legislation which, I believe, allows for the use of smack with the hand as part of normal parenting practise. Anyone confirm that?

National MPs, you know what you have to do. Go to it.

John Boscawen is showing himself to be NZ's own beacon of freedom. First the EFA, now this.

Go John!

I hope this amendment doesn't go through before July.
I want to see the country fucken stick it to Bradford in the referendum just after she is elected Green Party co-leader.

No way this'll get any traction with the Nats even if it got pulled from the ballot. They all voted in favour of the Bradford Bill.

John will make a stalwart and genuine opponent for Bradford.

True, and that was one of the worst examples of the kind of collective hysteria, (un)moderated by Margaret Wilson, that seemed to grip the House during Labour's reign. Doesn't feel like that now, and wiser heads might get to prevail - and John Boscawen seems to be the kind of wiser head who actually gets things done. Watch this space.

on the contrary: if it is pulled from the ballot the Nats will vote for it en mass - along with at least half of Labour - and it will pass.

What's more, I'm pretty sure that if it isn't balloted by the middle of next year, it will be adopted as a government bill, and again it will pass.


The leftyscum do not realise that NZ has changed.
For the better and forever.

I am really looking forward to seeing how Boscawen's bill is drafted.

I was never happy with the previous s59, having studied law I have read the odd case where it was badly applied, but in no way did I support Bradford's bill or think the solution was to remove the defence - the defence just needed tightening up or clarifying, hopefully this new bill will do just that.

Boscowans bill has been drafted. It is based on the Borrows amendment but the explanatory note has yet to be redrafted. I`ll probably blog on it next week.

Given you're wrong about pretty much everything Sinner, you've just guaranteed that the Bill won't get anywhere. BTW, do you do stock picks?
