ACT had a large half page ad in the SST yesterday, backing the petition calling for a referendum on whether a smack as part of good parental correction should be a criminal offence.
Quite smart move, as it is a hot issue with many and they can try and brand themselves as the one parliamentary party against the law change.
The ad I am told, was paid for out of private donations, not taxpayer funds.
It will be fascinating if they do get the numbers for a referendum, as it is not the issue the Government wants to be in everyone’s minds in the second half of this year.
The ad is below, the thumbnail going through to the full ad.
