Ouch. This is Parekura defending himself in Parliament yesterday:
Mr Horomia had himself described advocating for Maori as “tiresome,” she said.
“Sometimes you do feel like that working with our constituency,” Mr Horomia replied.
But he added, Maori were “great people” and “we do love them irrespective of how they make us feel”.
Imagine if a National MP spoke about Maori like that?
