Pretend token empty symbolism smashed to pieces

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.

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.
