Today Rodney Hide announced the line up for the transitional Auckland Authority or what the hell ever it's called.
Nobody else seems to have noticed that in doing so Rodney has severely fucked over Pita Sharples.
Tomorrow, the good people of Auckland might wake up to the fact, yes it's a fact, that their transitional authority contains twenty percent Maori representation. The problem for Pita is, this huge percentage of Maori representation was achieved by merit, not by allocation according to race.
Good on Rodney. Good on Mr Walden.
