If you needed any further discouragement from smacking your children...
Marj (Auckland): I'm not even gonna bother to vote, god I was brought up getting smack, I'm not sure what they going on about, what's wrong with it I'm not even gonna go against my parents teaching, I think they brought us up in a good way. We listened.
Does it now.
Greg Connor (One Tree Hill): I would like to see a referendum on the issue of Maori taking bodies from their families to different parts of the country. While it is a cultural issue I think it should be the subject of a referendum because it is something that effects many families in NZ.
Indeed, Bill, it seems you think that representatives are often a hindrance to good representative government.
Bill Daly (Glen Eden): Referendums should be binding on government, whether local or national. MPs are often no better and sometimes less informed about issues than the general population. I'd like to see a referendum on a new law that says MPs must vote a particular way if the majority of their electorate want that, irrespective of what party bosses might want. Political parties are not necessary to democracy and are often a hindrance to good representative government.
Malx (Pyes Pa): Very vaguely.Well it's no more poorly worded than the current one.
Something to do with banks gouging us
Something to do with electricity companies gouging us
Something to do with financial companies being made to pay back people.
something to do with politicians ludicrous superannuations and allowances.
a a (Devonport): What would I like to see a referendum on? Prostitution, and yes it should be binding."Should prostitution be binding? Yes or no?"
