Everyone played their part in reacting to the Brash Report. Bosses uncritically applauded it. Unions forcefully rejected it. Labour and the Greens exposed it as a strawman. Key bravely slew the strawman. And the Maori Party, well:
“One of the recommendations in the report promoted bridging the income gap between New Zealand and Australia, and while the Maori Party was keen to see this happen, it was interested to see how it would be achieved.”
“One of the recommendations”? It’s the point of the bloody taskforce! Don’t they watch the news?
“Interested to see how it would be achieved”? Didn’t they even read the Executive Summary before writing the presser?
Are they just sitting on the fence? Or are they really this ignorant? What a disgrace the Maori Party has become.
