    1ewes promo said Rt Hon Winston Raymond Peters PC will be on Q&A this weekend – “what are his policies?” watch & see.

    Will they even think to ask him if the retention of the Maori seats would be subject to e referendum of the General or just the Maori Electorates?

    I’ve been told the latter by their Maori Affairs spokesperson, but their website is deliberately ambiguous.

    Everyone on Newshub breathlessly supportive of immigration.
    Why don’t they have their own NZ and fill it up – it can be like Ranganui Walker’s “Just like anywhere else”. Are they saying what the advertisers want to hear?
    RNZ’s business reporter is another one: Gareth Keirnan: “our skilled migrant program is highly regarded internationally” is not an argument from someone who ought to know it is crap.
