Audrey rates Labour’s Maori caucus

Audrey Young rates the members of Labour’s Maori Caucus. The summary is:

  • Adrian Rurawhe: Exceeded expectations
  • Kelvin Davis: Pedestrian
  • Nanaia Mahuta: Distracted
  • Peeni Henare: Sheltered
  • Willie Jackson: Active
  • Kiri Allan: Big Future
  • Meka Whaitiri: Solid
  • Rino Tirikatene: Treading water
  • Tamati Coffey: Adjusting
  • Willow-Jean Prime: Dependable
  • Jo Luxton: Disciplined
  • Paul Eagle: Unsettled
  • Shanan Halbert: Dedicated
  • Arena Williams: Ambitious

Also worth noting that Audrey said re Mahuta:

But distracted by Three Waters reforms and a series of stories about public sector contracts awarded to her consultant husband. They have reached such a pitch that she herself should refer the matter to the Public Service Commission or Auditor-General to get an independent opinion and draw a line under it. 

That’s an excellent idea.
