The Spinoff Great Debate

The Spinoff has what they call a Great Debate at 7 pm tonight. It will be live streamed on Facebook.

Taking part:

  • Paula Bennett (National)
  • Kelvin Davis (Labour)
  • Marama Fox (Maori Party)
  • Marama Davidson (Greens)
  • David Seymour (ACT)
  • Gareth Morgan (TOP)
  • Shane Jones (NZ First)

Toby Manhire is running things. Trying to joke about everything. There is a live audience. The feed is breaking too much.

It’s a lively debate.

Shane Jones getting blasted from both sides, Marama Fox and Gareth Morgan asking him if he agree’s with his party leader’s views on Maori seats.

Kelvin Davis said he hasn’t listened to Marama Fox for 3 years anddoesn’t intend to start. Labour not looking good with the Maori Party. Davis doesn’t look comfortable or happy about much at all actually.

    Just watched some of this – it’s an estrogen-fest.

    Just clicked on the embedded video on their fb page but no go. Must be only able to view it live & it’s finished now? It’s a pain the ass watching things like this on facebook.

    I agree with NZ First on the Maori seats but it is part of a wider debate about unity.
    We won’t have a debate as it is a boutique left-wing issue (as much as anythin) and their ideologies are esconced in academia, media and the public service. They use Maori to attack the white patriarchy.
