Hone Harawira has clearly lost his marbles or worse by aligning himself with the Black Power and Mongrel Mob and opposing legislation now before the House which would see them disbarred from accessing Government services while wearing their patches.
Mr Harawira knows or should know those patches are there to intimidate. Mr Harawira knows or should know that being 'patched' almost certainly requires the person involved to have committed a crime to prove his/her worth. Mr Harawira knows or should know that the Black Power and the Mongrel Mob are heavily into organised crime including the methamphetamine ‘industry’ which has and is wrecking havoc with so many lives, Maori and non-Maori alike. Mr Harawira knows or should know that the Black Power and Mongrel Mob operate outside societal norms and are a disgrace to Maoridom.
So just why Mr Harawira chooses to view these two criminal organisations through brown tinted rose coloured spectacles has me beat. Why he should want to associate any 'mana' that he has with them has me beat. Perhaps it’s his way of giving yet again the one figured salute to the rest of New Zealand.
The good people of Te Tai Tokerau deserve much better than this ... sad, sad, sad.
p.s. Question .... someone (perhaps Judge) will know which Party has been given and accepted Harawira's proxy vote in the House given that he seems to be MIA from the debating chamber an awful lot.
