And the children of New Zealand breathe a sigh of relief, part II

John Key has announced that the government will not support John Boscawen's child-beating bill. Nice to see National on the side of right for once.

This neatly sidelines the poisonous sadists. Rather than dominating the conversation for the next eighteen months, they get a single howl of outrage in a few weeks time, after which we can forget about them. And good riddance.
