The care of Children Bill is not clear on one very important point, providing in section 4(5) that the Welfare of a child may rest with “a court or a person”. We must also realise that the best interest principle has been moved from within proceedings to the administration of the act. What we now consider to be in the Judges realm will be able to be transferred to an organisation. While in the not to distant future we may see the family court written off as a bad experiment or have its structure and use reviewed, much of its current workload is likely to be transferred to new organizations — see (Revenge is just an Allegation Away.), and such that replace our failed CYPS. See – ( Social service agencies wary of sharing CYFS workload) One issue that hasn’t been resolved yet is section 59 of the Crimes Act, which legally still leaves parents holding the power. In terms of creating the state parent during the term of this next socialist government, it is imperative that those free thinking parents that value the family make the loudest possible protest against alterations to Section 59. It is has nothing to do with smacking your children and everything to do with ownership of your offspring and the manner and values you impart to them. If you want family you will have to fight for it, because the power is with the legal few that think otherwise.
