noisy sheep

So Hone has broken ranks with the maori party over the bogus repeal of the Foreshore and Seabed legislation. Good - he has done it early. I wonder how he and his other maori party mp’s feel about being described as sheep? If that isn’t an insult I don’t know what is – but watch and see, first tariana will say she never said that, then key will say she did and that will be the end of it because they don’t even need to try and spin it, they don’t even care.

From Stuff
"Mr Key said Maori party co-leader Tariana Turia told him this morning that "they'd lost one of the sheep in the flock."
"It's highly predictable and quite frankly we would never be able to pass legislation that would satisfy Hone Harawira," Mr Key said. "Nor should we, because that would not reflect the views of the majority of New Zealanders.
"If he doesn't vote for it, I don't care."
Such a big man is mr key, he doesn’t care – but I bet he will care when his pack of cards fall due to the destruction of the maori party/gnat top and tail. It is getting closer every day.

Kia ora Marty,
I heard Key also refer to Hone's stance as "extreme". He fairly sneered it. His arrogance and condescension is mind boggling.

Kia ora Robb,

True mate - key is middle of the road all the way through but I suspect the electorate will eventually tire of his paperthin personality politics - hope so anyway.

Don't know about that Marty - he's nimble and made the populist call here - most 'listeners' will think, 'yeah - Harawira - extreme!'
They've been building that around him for some time now and all it takes is a Key dog whistle.
Many of our countrymen are comfortable with arrogant and condescending.
key's doing the same number on teachers 'out of touch with reality' remember?
It's always a quick hit then retire.

It true Rob that he is constantly underestimated and maybe that is his greatest talent - he does indeed hit and fade - great observation.
