Laws advice to Key

Sunday Star-Times

Michael Laws has some advice for john key for his meeting with Tariana Turia:

When this week’s planned meeting does take place, Key should do more than politely nod. He should inform the Maori Party that the wider electorate has had enough of Maori separatism and privilege in any guise. That while such sentimentality and sensitivity may be indulged during brighter times, it is just liability when the economy is in dire straits. Especially when ordinary New Zealanders – Maori and non-Maori – are fighting a daily struggle to make ends meet. And losing that struggle, in too many cases.

The idea that more rewards, more favours and more tax finances should be delivered to one segment of the population – simply because of their culture and their colour – is inherently wrong.

The Treaty may be our guide, but it can never be an arbiter. It’s a simple truth. And this is the season to deliver it.

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.
