    Family First – Poll reveals backlash over smacking law

    1. Poll reveals backlash

    over smacking law
    The anti-smacking law is still enormously unpopular,

    a Herald election survey has found

    LISTEN Bob McCoskrie on National Radio The Panel discussing

    the latest poll results and the continued opposition to the law(starts at 16’52”)

    Family First Media Release Another Smacking Poll – Same Response

    Family First NZ says that the NZ Herald poll showing 86% opposition to the

    anti-smacking law is further proof that the law is fundamentally wrong and

    should be changed.

    Family First Media Release Bradford Encourages Parents to

    Carry On Smacking

    In a stunning turnaround, Green MP Sue Bradford has told parents that

    smacking is not a criminal offence and implied that groups like Barnardos,

    Plunket, Every Child Counts and politicians who have said that the aim of

    the law was to ban parents physically punishing their children are

    misleading the public.

    Green Party Response Family First shows legal ignorance
    Green Party MP Sue Bradford has responded strongly to a statement

    by pro-violence (!!) lobby Family First saying Bob McCoskrie appears

    confused about what the amendment of Section 59 is actually about.

    There is no specific law relating to smacking on New Zealand’s statute

    books. People like Mr McCoskrie have fostered a myth that what has

    happened is that a new law has been created that specifically outlaws

    smacking. This is simply not true.

    Family First Comment : Dear Sue, if the law wasn’t about smacking

    and doesn’t outlaw smacking, why did you call it the ‘anti-smacking

    law’ when you introduced it? (original media release from 2003 below
