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.
