Scrap Maori seats
The 2014 general election campaign has become nasty. A new low for New Zealand politics was reached last week when the Internet Party held hate-fuelled gatherings.
These ‘‘Nazi youth rallies’’ are being held around the country.
So-called champion of the poor Laila Harre’s, stance shows she has sold out her principles going on to the millionaire’s payroll and dancing to his tune.
She defended the hate chants; saying she celebrated students ‘‘becoming politically involved.’’
Ha. MP Hone Harawera, another so-called champion of the poor, has also sold out.
He has trashed the integrity of a reserved Maori seat with his plan to piggyback Dotcom into Parliament, making the Maori seats a commodity, giving anyone with cash a loophole to get into Parliament.
Once ther the Internet-Mana agreement allows the parties to split and operate independently, presumably gaining additional taxpayer-funded benefits along the way. The time has come to scrap Maori seats for a single electoral roll. Denis Shuker
Cambridge colour wiped-off the earth. Dramatically, painfully and without consideration. People would respect him and his beliefs by saluting him with ‘‘Sieg Heil’’. The irony is astounding.
Unless your primary ambition is to be a guard dog might I suggest more worthwhile activities which further your education, and improve your prospects – as in potential in life and employment, as opposed to youths who wander the streets at night to trying to be dogs.
