The official campaign has started for people to take part in the Citizens Initiated Referendum on Labour's anti-smacking law passed in 2007
The postal referendum runs from the 31st of July until the 21st of August and asks the question 'should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offence in New Zealand?'
It is being held as a postal referendum this year because Prime Minister Helen Clark refused permission to have it during the 2008 General Election because she thought it would cost her votes.
It will cost New Zealander's more than $9 million as a result.
It sounds like John Key is against changing this facist law but it must be changed for the sake of our families and our kids.
They are in danger if the anti-smacking law is not repealed as it fosters out of control children and lack of personal responsibility.
