Incoherency, Oxymorons and sheer Madness"smacking is bad, abortion is good."
Sue Bradford:
- if we stop parents from being allowed to smack their children when they are naughty, then the level of violence against children will drop.
Hmmm, I thought violence against children was already illegal wasn't it?

- smacking is violence
Really? Although the act of smacking/spanking itself is according to the dictionary, a violent act, it is misleading to say that smacking is violence.

- my bill would not outlaw smacking - it would simply remove the defence of reasonable
Right, so smacking is fine... But reasonable force is not fine Sue? Why pass a bill that you say will not be enforced? Get a life.

- "Parents fear that they are going to be arrested, that someone will dob them in for
smacking their child. I can understand that fear and that is not my intention."
Then what is your intention, Sue?

I cannot understand what National, NZ First and United Future MPs are doing, supporting Bradford's bill. The Bill doesn't make sense. She doesn't talk sense. It just doesn't make sense.

The only way this proposed bill of hers is going to become law, is if the government ignores the people of New Zealand, which it really should not do.
