    Timely.

    Once the Labour Party was the only one for Maori.

    “He’s got to speak English or he will miss the bus.”

    Such a great and powerful metaphor, saying so much with a few words, and in everyday, down-to-earth terms. And it contrasts with some of the flowery (almost patronising) language of the reportage.

    Reminds me of some of Hone’s lines:

    “Feed the kids”

    “That is what the fuss is all about”.
