commitment to promises

I suppose Tariana didn't like Hone's speech very much - why would she when it smashed her weak effort. So she has come out with these comments on Hone missing the vote on the 2nd reading of the bill to replace the Foreshore and Seabed Act.

Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia says Hone Harawira should be embarrassed about forgetting to vote on the foreshore bill.
She said Harawira's failure to vote puts into question his commitment. "You're either genuine and you're here to represent a particular viewpoint and as such you're here to cast a vote saying that you support that viewpoint."
Yes so true, we remember all of the votes you have made Tariana supporting the gnats and making life harder for the people - yes your voting record says it all so I wouldn't be too indignant about Hone's mistake. Especially when a new poll of maori shows that only 11% support your Bill. That is not a mandate no matter how much spin you put on it. Will you keep your promise to follow the wishes of maori? Will you keep that promise?
