Poor Hone. Sold his soul to Dotdevil. Regrets… oh yeah

any likeness to people being discussed is a remarkable conincidence, yet this is not photoshopped.  perhaps these are their doppelgangers?  (oddly enough, a German word)

Mana leader Hone Harawira claims the National, Labour and Maori parties are all out to unseat him by throwing their weight behind Labour’s Kelvin Davis, leaving him fighting for his political life with only two campaigning days left.

Well, he’s got that right.   No need to claim anything, it’s true.  

At Te Piiti Marae in Omanaia, Mr Harawira said the Maori Party was considering telling supporters to vote for Mr Davis – a day after John Key said he was comfortable with National supporters doing so.

“Things have just got real tough for me,” Mr Harawira told the meeting.

“I’ve heard that the Maori Party is considering standing their man down and giving their votes to Labour’s [Mr Davis] as well.

“So the fight for this seat has just become the kind I really like, which is us against the rest. I’m upset about it, because it’s tough enough in Parliament on your own. I take it also as a bit of a compliment.”

Hone, you took Dotcom’s poisoned deal.  Now stop whining and take the consequences like a man.   At least your new house and overseas funds will keep you in a style you weren’t accustomed to before you sold your soul.

There is an incredible irony that someone who has railed against colonialism and the negative influence of the ‘white man’ was so blinded by greed and power that he honestly thought he could out-think and out-play a masterful fraudster conman.

Hone, if you don’t make it on Saturday, you earned that result all by yourself.

Now man up and stop whining about it.
