Let’s fix that headline: Bennett too embarrassed to visit marae .
She told reporters at Parliament that the Government was considering giving the marae more funding on top of $10,000 already donated by Te Puni Kokiri.
“I’ve discussed it with officials and we are just going through what that might mean. So I suppose the answer is possible,” she said.
“I’m not sure [how much could be given]. I’ve had some discussion with officials…the Maori Party raised it with me the other night, so I’ve said that I would have a look at it.”
The very least she could do.
“The minister does actually have a very full day tomorrow because it’s her only day in Auckland once a week so she packs a lot in.”
Pretty pathetic as excuses go. But don’t worry Paula, the homeless will still be there next week. And the week after that. And the week after that. And the week after that…
