“They do not trot a harassed mother in a supermarket off to court. They will not under Sue Bradford’s change. What they will be able to do is successfully prosecute people who beat children.”
Oh the Devil, she walks in hypocrite shoes.
Bradford and Clark…you go girls…..but don’t back pedal so fast that you fall of your bikes!
I can’t believe the scurrilous way these two women get away with saying one thing one day and something else the next.
Come on women….are you saying smacking is out or not?
In Pak’N’Save this morning I was behind a woman at the checkout whose older child had hurt her younger child. She was upset and said “This is crazy…my children can hurt each other, but I’m not allowed to smack them to keep them in line”.
I agreed and said “yes…what these politicians are doing is crazy alright”.
The women then said “They should leave us parents alone and get the police out there catching murderers and thieves. The craziest thing though is that banning smacking isn’t going to stop children getting abused and killed”.
I replied “yes…we are part of the 90% who know that and oppose Bradford’s Bill. We now live in a dictatorship”.
She said “you’re right. Its just crazy”.
Welcome to Helengrad, check your men at the prison as you enter.
Bradford and Clark must go.
No they won’t [be able to successfully prosecute]…again Mrs Clark tells porkies.
Look at the Kahui twins…
Look at the Nelson man acquitted of murdering his daughter…
And we know Mrs Clark is a hypocrite and a fraud (noun – a person who makes deceitful pretenses; sham; poseur).
Look at Mrs Clark’s signed painting sold at a fundraiser; look at her instructions to her driver to break the law so she could get to a rugy match.
And, when it all comes down to the line, what could a CHILDLESS person possibly know about being a parent?
You got it: ABSOLUTELY F***ING ZIP!
