The outspoken MP also claims in a newsletter to his constituents that Labour is the “thieving bunch” who stole the foreshore and seabed off Maori.
“They took Manaaki Tauira [tertiary education grants] away from our kids, took Maori out of schools, took the Treaty out of the curriculum and voted to take the Treaty out of all legislation,” the newsletter says.
“They stand between us and a clean sweep of the other three Maori seats. In electoral terms, they are our declared enemy. I mean these guys suck.”
That newsletter sounds like an election advertisement to me!
