apocalypse now intro - The Doors - the end

I am very worried about the maori party. Not so much for them but for maori and the major setback it will be if they go down. Is it the beginning of the end or the end of the beginning?

I don't think the MP are going to self destruct. It looks as though they've held the line on this ETS vote and avoided any embarrassing public spat over it.
Their biggest problem will be if/when their voters wake up and recognise the damage the Maori Party have done by supporting the Tories.
It's a shame because there was so much hope when MP took their first seats. They've now sold principle for power and will forever be tarred with the brush of this appalling govt..
Their other problem is that if the Tories consolidate at the next election thy won't need the Maori Party and NACT will get on with their policy of abolishing the Maori Seats.

Kia ora country

Yes your points are true. I thought the maori party could represent all maori, from both the left and right and inbetween, but now I'm not so sure. The internal tensions are simmering - reminds me of speed wobbles.

Maybe like everyone else, maori need representation that represents them from all political angles and it is time for a maori-left voice to come through. I can't see it being hone. And I hate the thought of more division but the way it is isn't going to work IMO and i agree with you that the NACT will drop them very quickly as soon as they can. I'm sad about it though and I hope i'm wrong.
Ahh well - at least summer is here

It would be great to have a NEW ZEALAND left let alone a Maori left.
I'm into areas on which I'm not qualified to comment - but - what about Syd Keepa? I really like someof what Matt McCarten.

So true mate - it would be nice if some of them began to make their presence felt because like you country, i am just not sure who is there to do that job.
