An Appalling Pile of Tripe......

,,,,from the usually reliable John Armstrong.


Is the Maori Party now in debt to National?



Well, in a word "NO."

Mr Armstrong builds a pseudo story on flimsy assumptions.

The first:-

It remains to be seen, however, whether voters get exercised by National's not infrequent selling to the wealthy of special access to the prime minister in return for donations - the ethics of which frankly stink.

Where was Mr Armstrong when Labour did precisely that which stinks at its last annual conference?

The second:-

The great bulk of Maori voters, however, will assume that Key's helping hand with the Maori Party's finances has left the party seriously in debt to National.

Utter nonsense,

The third:-

Given that most of its supporters likely struggle to get by financially from week to week and given the competition from Hone Harawira's Mana Party, fund-raising for the Maori Party must be a thankless task.

Really?  He doesn't know much about the Maori Party.  The Maori Party is the party of middle class intelligent and wealthy Maori.  It's Hone's mates who run around on the bones of their sorry dumbarses.

the fourth:-

The trouble is Flavell has accused Harawira of selling out Mana's soul to in return for cash from Kim Dotcom. It is difficult to spot the difference between that and the Maori Party's dinner.

Oh come on, Mr Armstrong.   The Maori Party has gained more tangible benefits for Maori from it's  thus far brief association with National than a gaggle of fat and useless Labour Maori MPS got for them from Labour in decades.   And you conveniently forget Schmitz is a convicted fraudster and cheat who pays his staff less than their legal entitlement.  To conflate him with John Key is reprehensible.

YOU TALK ABOUT THE NORMALLY RELIABLE JOHN ARMSTRONG. I PERSONALLY HAVE ALWAYS THOUGHT OF HIM AS A DIRTY LITTLE SOCAILIST. ALWAYS PUSHING LABOURS VEIWS.

Normally reliable? You mean he always toes the tory line regardless of the facts? Interesting you would admit that.

Why is Denis shouting? He appears angry.

No Rex

He just fails to understand the ethos of the Maori Part which is diametrically opposed to the ethos (if you could call it that) of the Harawira First Party
