I've been an avid reader of the New Zealand blogsphere for quiet a while now and i've recently noticed the shortage of blogs written from a Maori perspective. This blog is an attempt to address that shortage. Most of my postings will deal with Politics and are written from the perspective of a young Maori male.This post from muzza discusses the maori party and there successes/failures - an excellent summation and discussion.
A common criticism from the left is the MP have favoured symbol over substance. To a lesser extent they have shown far too much deference to the “Iwi elite” and not enough compassion towards urban Maori – or poor Maori. In my opinion the first criticism holds true. Many, if not most, of the MP policy wins have had very little practical effect.Awesome to have more korero - thanks muzza - looking forward to part 2.
