i cannot hide my monster side

How nasty will they get?

"We are a Maori party, they are not a Maori party," Dr Sharples said. "They seem to represent the unions and various other groups ... we're not left, we're not right. we're Maori."

Yesterday, Mrs Turia said Mr Harawira would be an odd choice to represent the interests of the left. "The Greens do that extremely well in Parliament right now, and I can't see how someone who has never represented those interests ever in his lifetime is now going to pick up on those interests and represent them here."
 Get that Hone - sharples and turia say you don't lead a party interested in maori and you have never represented the interests of the Left - oh you are so bad! That is all the maori party have - insults  - because when their record is analysed the truth is there  - they have not listened to their people and they have sold their credibility out for baubles. They have solidified that Māori have lessor rights than others and they HAVE NOT LISTENED TO THE PEOPLE as they promised to do.

Notwithstanding that let's see what they can do and how low they can go - Mana will sort it out.

Turia and Sharples are now fighting for their political lives.
Turia's crocodile tears over the abuse she got from the Harawiras at the hui disgusted me.
She's one of the biggest bullies in the playground and now she's getting it back. I am sad to say it but I'm looking forward to her political demise.

Sharples is clueless:

this is a good detailed academic look at this Mana Party and maori leftviews, and what the Mana Party means for Aotearoa -

http://links.org.au/node/2303 Aotearoa/New Zealand: A new working-class, pro-Maori political voice

The founding conference was held on April 29 with more than 500 people answering the call issued only a couple of weeks before by Hone Harawira, the elected MP for Te Tai Tokerau – a Maori electorate that covers the top third of the North Island, starting in the north and west of Auckland.

Hone Harawira had been elected as a representative of the Maori Party in 2005. At the Mana Party conference he announced he was resigning his seat in parliament and standing again in the resulting by-election to seek a new mandate as leader of a new movement in New Zealand politics.

An online poll in the NZ Herald of 30,000 readers had 8% saying they would vote for the Mana Party.

Te Mana Party knows where it stands, it seems it is Labour and the Maori Party that are unclear about their values.

I Imagine that Te Mana and the Green Party o Aotearoa will begin to forge a third bloc, and Labour will begin to reassess where it stands on certain policies and commitments.

Perhaps Sharples will be gone in a few months. Brash will be hoping the Maori Party does not find a new direction. National will be hopping Aotearoa does not mobalise this year.

Privatisation and the cost of living will never be far from the surface as the election commences.
