That is after the latest baby death which Sue Bradford's repeal of section 59 failed to prevent, despite all her promises to the contrary.
I like Dunne's policy. Oh no, not the one just mentioned, but the one he proposed in 2003:
Dunne: CYFS can never 'parent' our children
Two tragedies in yesterday's news should be a reminder to all that the key to keeping our children safe will never be found by simply fixing CYFS' obvious failings, but by holding parents accountable, United Future leader Peter Dunne said today.
"It means that you don't go from violent relationship to violent relationship, dragging your kids through multiple schools and myriad houses, until finally some thug does them in, and then simply turn around and ask why the system failed you.
"And yes, the system does fail, but there is altogether another failure that we as a society need to address, and it is a failure of families, a failure of parenting.
"When these tragedies occur - while we rightly ask questions of the State apparatus that is there to intervene in such situations and too often fails to do so - we must also turn to the parents ... the mothers, the fathers, and say 'where were you when your child needed you; when you're child was in danger?'
"There is too little responsibility at an individual and family level."
But Dunne, like most of our politicians, is too gutless to promote those philosophies. Instead he goes for the easy solution - another government agency.
What follows that? An agency to monitor that agency and so on and so on?
