I can pronounce "Maoldi" as good as anyone

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Proof positive that the Gummint are PC mad is this mornings article in the Herald announcing Labours Maoldi policy.

It seems that our future teachers will have to prove they can pronounce Maori in order to graduate, under Labour’s Maori policy launched yesterday.

The proposal to “ensure all teachers demonstrate competency in reo-a-waha enunciation and pronunciation” is among the policy proposals put forward by Prime Minster Helen Clark and Maori Affairs Minister Parekura Horomia in Hamilton.

That is going to be really f**king useful for a French, English, Japanese (insert any other pertinant subject matter) teacher.

Horomia says it is important because 1 in 4 students is Maori, but what about the other 3 in 4 don’t they count.

To top off this ridiculous expansin of P.C.B.S, Dr Pita Sharples has come out saying the Gummint should do more.

This is patent nonsense of the highest order….I am just waiting for the left to brand me a racist again.
