Sue Bradford is shocked

Find out why[thanks Twitter]. And find out what Annette King finds unbelievable, and why Family First thinks it's just great.

Update Bradford has finally smacked out a media release, concentrating on Rankin's views on Section 59 of the Crime's Act.
I accept Ms Rankin's right to hold her misguided beliefs in opposing reform and her support for a misleading petition, but I don't think it's right that someone who has played such a high-profile part in supporting the right of parents to hit children should be entrusted with this vital role.
Update Ha,it gets better. Even Peter Dunne is annoyed. He has called for her to reject the position, saying National has made a mistake. Anybody would think all the Families Commission does is comment on corrective discipline. And the Chief Commissioner has also weighed in. Guess what she discusses.

Family First certainly don't represent my family's views. They dismiss the evidence lightly in their release, but saying something doesn't make it so.

Reading the things they have said over the years, they appear to me to be a people who aren't prepared to let the evidence interfere with their sincerely held (but proven wrong) beliefs.

Their policies are based on belief rooted in ignorance. It's sad they work so hard to do so much potential harm to so many.

what are your family's views? Family First read this blog. I`ll make sure they read your views if you`d be kind enough to elaborate.

I second Bradford's comments. Its a sad day when a violence apologist is appointed to such an important position.
