Pita Sharples has said there is too much dependency on welfare in Maoridom – and Labour have failed to address this.
They seem to be playing a smart hand in positioning themselves as willing to work with any party to advance Maori interests. Of special interest is their plans to run seminars for National MPs on the foreshore & seabed issue.
It will also be interesting if Labour support their attempts to entrench the Maori seats. Mind you even if Labour do support them, they will fall short of the super-majority needed.No tag for this post.
