There's trouble at mill

Trouble at mill for sure over the smacking legislation that Labour looks set to pick up so they can ram it through despite overwhelming opposition to it.

Winston First and United Future are seriously having internal ructions over the bill and the Labour caucus itself is seething. Winston First and United Future are also not happy with Labour's tactics to adopt the bill. Peter Dunne especially has been scathing.

This is all adding up to chaos in the house, chaos that hopelessly inept Speaker Margaret Wilson has little or no control over. Increasingly Question time is becoming a farce as she castigates the opposition and lets Labour loudmouths like Trevor Mallard  and Shane Jones off the hook completely.
