    Time for the Labour Māori Caucus to have a long hard look at itself and its spokesman.

    Willie Jackson in the urgent debate on the sacking of Meka Whaitiri says the Labour Maori caucus “stands by the Prime Minister, we stand by Meka Whaitiri, we stand by the victim, if she has been hurt… we haven’t had the evidence yet.”

    Being staunch is all very well but this attitude is what has given us NZs high level of family violence
    And from the Party that claims it stands for the workers, shameful.

      It’s called Maori bs, Ray. Maoridom is full of it. White liberals enable it.
