My comment on The Standard is this
Well I spose at least the maori labour MP’s will maybe feel better about following their voting instructions now – it always seems weird that they and their team were supporting the repeal of labours own act. And if it becomes a festering sore for labour to inherit they can always do what they did before, can’t they – but it will depend on how many votes they think they will get or lose, as per usual.But Tariana says it all with this comment from Stuff
Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia mocked the change of heart from Labour.
"I would say they've been watching all the representations that have come to the committee. They think that every Maori in the country is against it, but what they don't realise is that there's not one Maori in the country that's forgotten what they did.''I am against the Bill because I believe it doesn't empower maori. labour and goff are opposed because they might lose votes and that is why I won't vote for that party or that fake.
