It is irresponsible to pass useless legislation just to send a message


This from Frogblog about the tagging legislation:
In his classic style, Nandor ripped into the House last night, telling those who support the tagging legislation that it is irresponsible to pass useless legislation just to send a message. He pointed out that everyone who spoke in favour of the legislation railed about the evils of tagging and its link to violence, while openly admitting that the Bill itself wouldn’t work. He called on Parliament to step back and take a breath.

This shows that the Greens are inconsistent and hypocritical. Let's discuss another bill. Imagine if Nandor had said this a couple of years ago.
In his classic style, Nandor ripped into the House last night, telling those who support the anti smacking legislation that it is irresponsible to pass useless legislation just to send a message. He pointed out that everyone who spoke in support of the legislation railed about the evils of smacking and its link to violence, while openly admitting that the Bill itself wouldn’t solve child abuse. He called on Parliament to step back and take a breath.
