It’s incredible that the politicians still deny that good parents are being criminalised. What planet are they on?
On the basis of this issue I no longer trust, nor support John Key or his Government.I cannot understand what motivates him to hold to this line, which plainly makes a liar of him. My vote for his Government was intended to remove Helen Clark and, I hoped,some of the bad legislation enacted by Labour. We still lack democracy,honesty and morality in Government. To whom do we look to now?
To the Kiwi Party, who have done a good job fighting these rogue politicians, who think its there embedded right to ignore the majority view…I knew National would be a let down, and they are. Really sad for democracy…it’s all about power and appeasing UN santions. What a socialist state we have become. Sadly.
Can you add an edit button, so I can fix up the spelling errors, Bob? Thanks. Great blog, and good name, by the way! Cheers.
Planet ‘Power at any cost’ I think, planet, ‘We know better than the people we supposedly represent. Will they ever do the right thing re this crazy law? Well, I won’t be holding by breath. So, let’s vote them out next year.
I agree, I voted for this Government, because I felt that the Labour Party(Iam more sure now!)was totally anti family, as obviously Mr.Prasaad is. The comission should ONLY be manned by those who are totally equipped with the teaching of traditional family values.
Harvey, I agree with your thoughts re Labour and National have turned out to be no different. You ask the question why national is taking this stance, I would like to suggest the reason is its being pushed by UN. If you receive any international news relating to, the UN you will notice its agenda is equality without oppression, and tolerance where we have a world with understanding and everyone is accepted, and one’s feelings are ever hurt, and where no one is condemned.
So what they do is they covertly introduce policy to governments world wide whom as we have seen in NZ, introduce these policies, civil unions bill, gay rights, anti smacking, child’s rights over and those of the parent with the threat of law enforcement if a child so much as complains, and a raft of other policy yet to be introduced that will erode our rights as parents and individuals.
We are seeing these extreme laws introduced into the UK and other western democracy’s.
If you get a chance read an article called ‘Tue upside world’ by Joel Billiard, there is a book of the same title, it makes for an interesting read.
Re politics, there is no one standing currently that is worthy of a vote as far as I’m concerned. Maybe Bob M should run as an independent, he would be the only one with morals and ethics that’d for sure.
Do you seriously think John Key was ever interested in the public’s concerns? He huffed and he puffed to blow the Parliament House down because he wasn’t in it. Now he is cosily ensconced, it would be knavish to think he will ever do anything about it. It is not an issue. What concerns him is the same old game of selling assets, privitising business, retrenching labour protections, and monetarising every available public sphere. It is not about socialism, not even capitalism. It is about elitism.
Perhaps the “smacking” he received at Waitangi changed his mind and made him decide to keep the smacking law in place…just in case, for next years sake.
Look – at the end of the day, an intelligent parent doesn’t need to smack. Teach your children strong principles, strong values, don’t be a hypocrite, and overload them with your undivided attention, and heaps of affection from birth.
Kids a mischievious but who’s the adult YOU or them? I don’t believe in smacking as I don’t need to.
Rather late to comment but well spoken. The agenda is absolutely correct. Look at the way the UN is promoting anti-life and anti-family policies. This drift is destabilising the family unit. Feminism was another that denigrated the family unit. Homosesexuality! Why? Anti-family. The only thing that a materially efficient person couldnt figure out is how this can possibly take place, given that the majority of people contain some sense of righteousness. Are we too lethargic in speaking up? Are certain people being bought? Is it our own lowering of moral standards that is helping their cause? Why did Helen Clarke re-engineer the social structure by instigating silently, anti-family policies? Labour is about families surely! How come John Key is not recognising the smacking law as anti-family. He has a family himself!
Once we start asking these questions and getting the odd answer we can see that an invisible force (aided by some human beings ) is at work trying to find the weakest point to exploit. It has to be something like this as i dont think any one person or group could have enough management skills to manipulate the world!!! If this is correct then what is this invisible force. Is there anything we have forgotten. Aaah yes!! We are not just physical beings. We have a spirit. Are we as individuals and a society looking after or following our “inner spirits” today?
