Labour cuts and runs on smacking bill

Labour has cut and run on the Bradford/Clark Anti-smacking bill.

Clearly troubled by internal polling that suggests they have copped a flogging for supporting it they have abandoned attempts to make it a government bill.

This is another embarrassing backdown for the government after trying to gather support to ram it through under urgency.

The next thing they will do is withdraw the whip…..just you watch. 

Things are pretty parlous in parliament if you can't even pass legislation.
