"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.
