More Maori Quotas??

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]


Oh dear, I think Pita Sharples is working up to a new bill to introduce into the house.

Here comes the “Maori Quota for Affluent Areas Act”

If it were true, “why in my electorate are Maori not living in prime locations like Kohimarama, St Heliers, Mission Bay, or conversely, why are Maori concentrated in state housing sectors?”

(By the way Pete, I think Heather’s liking that tiger within)

In other maiden speeches yesterday, it’s good to see Bob the Builder hasn’t lost his charm, despite no clarification about that left testicle:

“When I was 30 I got married,” Mr Clarkson told Parliament. “After 11 years I asked my wife what she wanted for Christmas and she said a divorce. I
wasn’t thinking of something quite so expensive.”


Mr Clarkson, now married to his second wife Martha, also tackled some serious issues, such as roading, but still managed to sneak in some humour.

“Forget speed, that is not the killer. The Right Honourable Helen Clark will confirm that speed does not kill,” he told the House.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
