Bradford should check her priorities

Sue Bradford now maintains that her bill to repeal section 59 of the Crimes Act was never intended to ban smacking. It is about preventing child abuse.

Since 1990 only 1.4 court cases per year have involved the use of section 59 as a defence.

Statistically, children from DPB homes are four times more likely to be the subject of a CYFS care and protection notification.

Yet you will never hear Bradford say a word against the DPB.
