Same old National – when they’re in trouble, out comes the club for a distracting headline. Hekia Parata’s under fire and digging herself into a very deep hole, so Paula Bennett rides to the rescue with the “news” that Cabinet is discussing allowing judges to direct miscreant parents not to have children on the grounds that they can ban miscreant dog-owners from having dogs. They can already take the children away and did so for 148 children last year.
Who knows what the judges think about this hospital pass – let’s hope the media sees it for what it is.
