Brian Clough: What message would a NO vote send?

June 15, 2009

I am passionate about this issue.

My grandfather was an alcoholic wife and child beater and my father beat me as a kid.  I know first hand how it feels and I find the wording of this referendum absolutely absurd.

Even if an adult was wrongly accused under the current law, at least they have the protection of the NZ Justice system via the courts – as a young boy being thrashed my only protection was the hope that my Dad would run out of anger before he managed to seriously injure me.  Sadly it’s not reasonable, good parents who kill their babies.

I shudder to think how these latent child killers in our society would interpret a NO result in the referendum.
