Captain Peacock’s Members Bill On Spanking

Captain Peacock’s Members Bill On Spanking Too Much Of A Rational Measure

Party Leader Sister Palpitatia BD is unconvinced that Section 59 of the Crimes Act should be amended, other than to exclude non-consenting children “The Corrective Party is concerned that this refugee from a bad seventies sitcom is being untrue and straight scare mongering,” The Mother Stuporific said.

“Captain Peacock’s Bill is a moderate and rational approach, but the Corrective Party is concerned that the flexibility of our spanking instruments will be lost. What is reasonable for a 25-year old man may be totally unreasonable for someone like Peter Plumley- Walker..."

“Using ‘rationality’ as the sole measure by which to evaluate spiritual bondage and church discipline, gives the court the opportunity to consider these bondage and discipline issues for the bottom-spanking believer.

“ With proper training sado-maso-Christians may not leave a bruise on the buttocks. Captain Peacock proposes restrictions on ‘reasonable farce’ have interfered with our mission to redden rear-ends for righteousness!!!!" Sister Palpitatia concluded.
