On Monday Little said Key had an obligation to attend and he wasn’t convinced he would have been banned from speaking if he had turned up.
“The reality is once you’re there I can’t conceive of a situation where they physically prevent him from speaking at the marae.”
That’s a pretty stupid comment, to put it mildly. Little is saying that even if a condition of the invite is you don’t speak, the PM should just ignore that and speak anyway because it is unlikely people would physically tackle the PM to stop him speaking.
Little really needs to learn to not just automatically criticise everything the PM does.
