Shows Prime Minister, John Key, dropping the 'referendum result' into the paper recycling bin. Text states 'the PM being a tidy kiwi'. The cartoon suggests that the prime minister has simply put the results of the Family First referendum into the rubbish. Refers to the 'Family First' lobby group's referendum which asks people to vote 'yes' or 'no' to whether a smack should criminalise a parent. The words of the referendum read 'Should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offense in New Zealand?" Sue Bradford's bill, a repeal of (s59 of the Crimes Act 1960) which was intended to prevent the so-called defense of 'physical force' has been the subject of a great deal of opposition and misunderstanding.
