Both Labour and National pander to Maori seperatism

Winston Peters

NZ First has consistently had a position that Maori do not have a special place in our laws.  Their equality is guaranteed and does not need brown pandering.

The Green Party says Labour will support its member’s bill to create Maori wards in local government, says New Zealand First Leader and Northland MP Rt Hon Winston Peters.

“Given that the National Party supported non-elected Maori representation on the Auckland Super City, and ACT’s Rodney Hide, as minister, pushed it through, National will also support the Local Electoral (Equitable Process for Establishing Maori Wards and Maori Constituencies) Amendment Bill that will soon be before Parliament.

“This is yet another case of the elite in Wellington telling ratepayers to butt out because they have a better idea on representation.

“It demonstrates how arrogant those who are temporarily empowered have become.

“New Zealand First will oppose race-based politics at central and local government level and stand for equal representation for all, regardless of wealth, race or gender,” says Mr Peters.

On the one hand National wants to reform the RMA and on the other hand they want to pander to Maori interests and create lots of cultural hurdles by creating yet another administrative system parallel to the current one.

Readers must be getting sick of Whaleoil saying this, but only NZ First has a strong one-law-for-all stance.
