This is a great example of Metiria Turei been owned by Hekia Parata. Turei asked a stilted question in Maori to a Minister who is a fluent speaker, as you can imagine she smashed Turei.
In her first term Hekia Parata was useless, but Labour were worse than useless…and missed the boat on trying to smack her up.
Now she is competent and quick in smashing stupid questioners.
You know that Turei is just being token in her use of Te Reo…she only ever asks the primary question in Maori. She has to read them and then resorts to English for every other question.
Well done Hekia.
