I am afraid to have to tell you that the good citizens of New Zealand have no choice but to now take to the streets to protest. The majority of the government having ignored their request: "let parents look after their own children", and attempting to impose it's communist ideals on the very people who they are supposed to represent.
Please Peter, for the love of the children, vote against Bradford's bill.
I used to respect you, as did many of my friends. Your attitude towards the 80% of New Zealanders who are opposed to this law change is nothing short of apalling. By voting for Bradford's bill, you are publically stating that the 120 MPs in parliament know better than the hundreds of thousands of "Mrs. Jones's" up and down our land, who from time to time take a child aside and smack him for breaking a rule or boundary set down by that family.
Please show New Zealand that you have a bit of backbone.
Yours, in anticipation,
