Fresh from Facebook’s “5000 Demanding Anti Smacking Law Change” group is this invitation:
ACT MP John Boscawen is holding a series of public debates on the smacking referendum result and how his bill to amend S59 will bring the legislation into line with public opinion.
John Boscawen will be holding the first debate in Phil Goff’s electorate MT Roskill this Monday. He has challenged Phil Goff to front up and defend his position on ignoring the referendum result.
The debate will be held on Monday, September 7 2009, 7.30pm, Hay Park School, 670 Richardson Road, Mt Roskill, Auckland.
Speakers include John Boscawen, Bob McCoskrie and Professor Jim Evans from the Auckland Law School.
If you live in the Auckland area, please do come along and learn more about John Boscawen’s bill while demanding that the politicians listen to the people and change the anti-smacking law.
I’ll be there; Matt, sadly, will be in Tauranga.
