Sue Bradford was on Morning Report, and she was clearly panicked. She
was talking about a mile a minute, and didn't even pull out her usual
bull about the bill not banning smacking.
They also played a clip of Dr Cullen in the house, who fell over his own
words owing, presumably, to his nervousness.
DPF makes some excellent points:
The Government looks to be panicking over the damage being done to it by
the smacking ban bill. Nothing else can explain the extraordinary,
possibly unprecedented, plan to progress the bill through its remaining
stages under urgency.
