Agreed - it feels like that, by voting, we're tacitly agreeing that a smack IS part of "good parental correction."
Absolutely. You may as well say something like, "Should prison inmates be given iPhones as part of an effective correctional programme?"

But I'm confused: is the result of a referendum like this legally binding? I presume not, because if it were I guess we wouldn't be sitting here talking about abstention, but just checking.
