And it’s on!
On the one side it’s Maori basher Don Brash and in the other Maori radical Pita Sharples. The stakes are high. Basically it’s about changing the mind of Don about Maori and trying to get Pita to shut up and worry about real issues in her community. If this works we will all be able to enjoy the lovely weather we’ve been having. We are missing the other Maori voice from splinter group Mana. Maybe complaining about a newspaper ad is one of the many disagreements between Mana and the Maori Party. The venue for this spectacle of class and respect is the Maori Television programme Native Affairs at 8:30pm. First agenda point: “Fed up with pandering to Maori radicals?”. Chips, beer and nuts ready.
