forget insults Hone

Isn't it strange that over 100 people and a 'large media contingent' knew where the hui about Hone was but not Bird and Flavell. They claim no one told them. Wasn't the hui instigated by them. Couldn't they just ask. Did someone forget to invite them deliberately to show who's boss.

From Stuff
Maori Party MP Hone Harawira may be taken straight to his party's disciplinary disputes committee after he failed to invite party representatives to a hui to discuss a complaint against him today. A hui was originally set for last Friday but the party's Te Tai Tokerau electorate committee asked for an extension until today. That was granted and a hui was expected to be held today but neither Flavell nor party president Pem Bird were invited. About 100 people, including MPs and constituents of Mr Harawira's Te Tai Tokerau electorate, have today gathered at the Whakapara Marae, about 23km north of Whangarei, along with a large media contingent, which is not allowed to go into the marae.
The same article said that Hone called Prime Minister Key a 'smiling assassin' again. It does seem that hone is feeling emboldened of late and that is a double edged sword. He needs to get worked up for the people to follow him but we don't want a Hone that insults for no good reason. What do you think about asset sales Hone? What do you think about polluted lakes and maori being ignored even with co management rights? Forget the insults on Key - we know who and what he is and you will not dent his public persona - he will do that himself - get stuck into maori issues and go hard. Focus on what we really care about Hone. Be the man.

Of course the party hierarchy knew that the Te Tai Tokerau electorate committee would endorse Hone, therefore they needed to figure out a way to take it straight to the top – to their allies. I guess it is a smart move by Te Ururoa but it is entirely see through.
