I read in this morning’s Sunday Star Times that the leading lights in the pro-smacking lobby have booked an Auckland hotel for a celebration on Friday night of their undoubted victory in the referendum. The headline reads: ‘NO’ HOPERS BOOK HOTEL FOR SMACKING VICTORY. A party to celebrate the possible return of legislation allowing parents to use ‘reasonable force’ to discipline their children!
A celebration of the fact that 4 out of 5 New Zealanders want to regain the right to hit their kids! Are these ‘no’ voters going to bring their own children along to the celebrations? And, if they are, just what will the children be celebrating? I’ve had some harsh words to say about these people in the past. But none harsh enough. What sickos you are.
