The "plank of wood" beating case

Labour, the Greens, the Maori Party... All the pro-repeal MPs are constantly re-using the same seven cases over and over again to prove that Section 59 lets abusive and violent parents off for savagely beating and thrashing their little kiddies. Just a quick quote from Bradford: "The men that are anti this bill are sexual perverts and get a kick out of hitting children" - So is that my dad? According to Bradford it is.

The two favourite cases that our pro-repeal MPs are using are the "Timaru Lady/horse-whip case" and the "man beats child with plank of wood case".

This is the plank of wood:

And below, the horse-whip:

As you can see, the stories that the pro-repeal MPs are banydying about are distorted beyond reason, merely pieces of propaganda to be used over and over and over again.

It is for this reason that I so often recieve almost identical letters from Maori Party MPs, Green MPs and Labour MPs.
