Anti-Smacking bill looks doomed

The anti-smacking bill is looking doomed after a survey of Maori showed 80% opposed to the bill.

The Maori Party despite the silly utterings of Tariana Turia are nothing if not pragmatists and would be silly to go against their core support. 

If the Maori Party decides to back the Key amendment, it would have the numbers to pass.

But Sue Bradford has said she would withdraw it in those circumstances.

Good, then that's that then.
