Hone and Parliament

December 16th, 2013 at 2:35 pm by David Farrar

The Herald reports:

Prime Minister John Key has accused Mana leader of taking a taxpayer-funded junket to South Africa after it appeared Mr Harawira did not attend Nelson Mandela’s funeral.

Harawira also refused to clarify if the taxpayer paid for his wife’s travel also:

Mana Party leader Hone Harawira won’t say whether his wife travelled to South Africa on the taxpayer dollar.

Mr Harawira has returned from a taxpayer-funded trip to farewell the late former South African president Nelson Mandela.

He told media at Auckland Airport this morning that it was a moving trip, which included performing a haka to Mr Mandela’s friends and family.

But he refused to say who paid for his wife’s trip.

“Come in with this kind of bullshit line about taxpayer funding when Hone Harawira goes, but nobody says boo about it when John Key goes.

“I’ll give you an answer when I hear his answer.”

Well that is easy. John Key changed the rules in 2009 so Minister’s no longer have their spouses travel with them at the taxpayers expense.  Rodney Hide was demolished for using his parliamentary funding to have his partner travel with him. Will Hone be held to the same standard.

UPDATE: Harawira has now said his wife was funded by private donors, not the taxpayer.

“This is a guy who has barely turned up to Parliament in 2013… He has spent a hell of a lot of 2013 doing anything other than actually taking his place in Parliament.

Hone has asked a total of three written questions in 2013. yes, just three. A disgrace. Three out of almost 17,000 asked by opposition MPs.

His contributions in the debating chamber have been almost non-existent.  In the last year his contributions have been:

  • Six oral questions (these are allocated so no issue there)
  • Spoke on the Budget debate, the financial review debate, the PM’s statement, two general debates, one urgent debate, one obituary, one local bill and one Treaty settlement. On average that is one speech ever six weeks!

So Hone Harawira has spoken on two bills in 2013. In the past year 145 bills passed into law, 57 had a first reading and 67 a second reading meaning 269 bills that he could have spoken on.

Hone Harawira has no interest or ability to be a parliamentarian. He is a very effective activist and protester. But he is a failure as a Member of Parliament.

    Given the cost of answering written questions, I’m all for his approach to fiscal rectitude. And speechifying on bills passed on party lines? Why bother, again he shows a keen eye for what is important.

    I actually prefer his laissez-faire hands off approach to that of the sanctimonious curtain twitching busy bodies who make up the rest of parliament.

    Yes Redqueen, that is the same person. And I believe it’s the same person who went to Australia to meet that country’s indigenous leaders, also on the taxpayer.

    Harawira is a racist and a squanderer of other people’s cash which he no doubt justifies because it’s taken from the hands of the ‘white motherf***ers’.

    But far far worse than a few trips here and there on the public purse, Harawira does far more damage to the very people he represents, Maori – especially his tribe.

    As I always bang on about, his very public persona is seen in the media all the time with this sort of behaviour. Older generation kiwis such as myself who have lived with and know Maori, know people like him are not representative of Maori as a whole, far from it.

    But the new immigrants don’t know this. They see Harawira, Tame Iti et al as pages of the same book and assume they speak for all Maori. Adding to the problem, Maori leaders the length and breadth of the country fail to distance themselves loudly. When New Zealand’s percentage of immigrants from countries where they try to get away from people like Harawira reaches a critical mass, shit’s gonna change. It has to, no matter how hard they try to brainwash kids in school.

    So laugh it up Harawira, I think future generations will not remember you kindly, or treat ‘your people’ with the same patience and respect we do now. Or give ongoing financial assistance.

    He will have used some of his Airpoints to pay for his wife to accompany him.

    Mana say that Harawira’s wife’s trip was paid for by private contributors.

    Private donors who wanted 1981 Springbok tour protesters represented at Nelson Mandela’s funeral paid for Hone Harawira’s wife, Hilda, to attend, the Mana Party leader’s office says.

    Upon his return this morning, Harawira refused to say whether taxpayers paid for Halkyard-Harawira to accompany him, reportedly calling the question “bull…..”.

    Harawira used his leader’s budget to go to South Africa after being left out of Prime Minister John Key’s official delegation, saying he would go to represent those who had opposed apartheid.

    A Mana Party spokeswoman said this afternoon the trip was paid for by private donors, however, who had also wanted to send tour leaders such as John Minto and Sue Bradford who declined. No taxpayer money was used.

    “It definitely hasn’t come out of taxpayer money,” she said.

    all easily substantiated. This is no Dotcom/Len Brown saga.

    ‘Hone Harawira has no interest or ability to be a parliamentarian. He is a very effective activist and protester. But he is a failure as a Member of Parliament.’

    Perhaps he was aware of this whe he flw the coop from Maori and Pita. Perhaps he is well aware of his short comings and using his pakeha radicals to be mouth pieces.

    I really wonder if he would have won confidence as a leader in Maori. he was a mountain of difference from Turiana. Shje had no parliamentary presence at all in the Maori Party.

    No what I am saying is that Mandela cared for his people and wanted to lift them out of poverty. Hone only cares about himself. He is there to collect the paycheck and go on cushy trips at the taxpayers expense. Look at the stats Yoza on what he actually does as an MP (or not in this case).

    Also Mandela is about reconciliation where Hone is about stirring up as much racial hatred as possible (its how he gets voted in of course).

    Some may consider the term “stone ager” offensive.

    I see it as a political term.In the Aotearoa formerly New Zealand context it has a certain validity.

    I see it as a counter termand challenge to the way the political ,media,and academia are constantly referring to Maori in terms of renaissance ,culturally advanced ,sensitive to the environment ,caring of nature and of their tribal affiliations etc

    in other words the brown wash that is going on in New Zealand in relation the history and development of the Maori people who inhabited these islands prior to the dire and destructive effects that colonisation and civilisation had .

    There are some here who bemoan a perceived desire on the part of conservatives to return Aotearoa formerly New Zealand to the fifties (the 1950′s) but who seem to have no problem with the same wish on the part of a few who want to return New Zealand to the 20′s ,the 1820′s.

    Manolo is actually an term for an old Spanish toff. Our Manolo believes he has rightful inheritance to the foreshore and seabed, because he thinks he has links to the early pre-Abel Tasman Spanish immigrant land owners. That’s why he’s peeved that he doesn’t get anything from the Treaty.

    (That will totally fuck a few lefties round here who worship Darwin as a God!)

    As a follower of Colin Craig…

    Another lie from the man-hater, hollier-than-thou, sanctimonius P.G.

    That’s what, in the stone age, they called ‘a joke’. Quite a good one too. Is even funnier when it’s transcribed in hieroglyphics on a cave wall.

    Take a good look inside and see if you can’t figure out why it is that you must denegrate other groups of people. A little introspective rather than gregarious time. A little lie down and a cuppa.

    I hate Hone Harawira with a passion. He is a racist and has no place in my country let alone my parliament.
    He is openly stealing from me and you. His lot rely on so many voters being fools; sadly on this count they have scored.

    Harawira’s political future, and pay cheque, depend on him keeping his constituents ignorant of parliament and election processes. He wants them to keep believing that success is all about challenging and giving cheek to the pakeha. Sadly many agree with that.

    As a follower of Colin Craig it’s not surprising to see Manolo with beliefs that Maori have lived in New Zealand since the Stone Age.”

    Watch that capitalization. The “Stone Age” has a totally different meaning to the “stone age.”

    Dumb by Key to stir this up again, given how everyone was just forgetting the whole issue of our delegation being a bunch of old pro-tour people.

    “…he is a failure as a Member of Parliament”
    Actually, he’s a failure as a human being.

    Harawira claims to represent all Maori. And all of New Zealand. He does that by protesting. And by traveling.

    Who does Harawira represent? You?
