Smacking back -- next Wednesday

Nanny Bradford's anti-smacking Bill is to be rushed through under urgency next Wednesday, to avert the possibility that if it weren't heard in the normal time period then wavering Labour MPs might have too much time to waver too far across the floor and head straight into the Noes Lobby. And then where would Nanny be?

So if the anti-smacking Bill is to be rushed through next Wednesday, that makes the anti-anti-smacking march to Parliament next week even more important. Keep up to date with details at organiser Mitch Lees' blog, Smacking Back -- and keep midday Wednesday free.
