if your heart hurts - cut it out

The removal of Hone from the maori affairs select commitee considering the replacement to Foreshore and Seabed Act is disturbing. The reason the maori party have given is that Hone has already made up his mind and that his mind is made on opposing the new bill. Everyone has a bias or some position, that is natural and I'm pleased Willie Jackson has made that point too. He believes this shows that the bill will be rubber-stamped by the select commitee. If that was the strategy they have made a mistake - now that Hone is not on the commitee then he will have more opportunity to galvanise opposition and i hope he goes hard on that one.

Rotten, rotten, rotten mahi pirau! This is becoming the issue o te tau ne ra!
I was set to alert you to Roar Prawn's 'Brown Table' epiphany, but saw that you'd been there already. There is some rotten stuff going down Marty and it can be tagged 'destruction of democracy'.

yes Rob we are fighting on many fronts but their supply columns are extended.

It will be interesting if BB has actually had a bernard hickey moment - hope so.

Kia ora Marty,
National is really showing their true agenda on almost every front now. If the current law does not suit they just change it. Scary times indeed.
