Oh lookie here, another Maori party “Bribe”

The government will help pay for young Māori to get their driver licences in a bid to get them into work and keep them out of jail.

I tell you this much.  Not once in my life have I considered my drivers license to have been instrumental in keeping me out of jail.   

The new initiative, Passport to Life – Taiohi Ararau, will assist Māori aged 15-24.

A total of $4 million will be spent on the programme, which also aims to equip them with other official documents like birth certificates and passports.

Māori Development Minister Te Ururoa Flavell made the announcement at a breakfast hui in Wellington today.

“We want our young people to participate fully in society and this funding will help them to do that ensuring they have the documentation and certification they need,” he said.

Another $4m trough for Maori to be doled out by the Maori party.  Such is the price for their “loyalty”.  Which, as you may remember, cost all of us more than $4m when National sold our rights down the road to pass munted RMA reform.

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.
