Boscawen’s bill drawn – and quartered

August 26, 2009

The Herald reports,

A bid by an Act Party MP to change the law that bans smacking is doomed because National will vote against the bill in Parliament.

John Boscawen drafted the member’s bill, which would make it legal for parents to lightly smack their children.

It has been in the ballot since March and was drawn today.

That means there will be a first reading debate on it, but that is as far as it will go.

John Key is showing remarkable courage by doing this.

You might like to drop him and his National Party cohorts a short email of support.
