Fight For Ikaroa-Rawhiti Getting Dirty

We don't condone domestic violence but latest revelations aside we have been positive about Derek Fox's bid for a Parliamentary seat. Maori need someone who understands business in its caucus and Fox seemed to fit the bill. Indeed it is a pity that Fox is not an MP right now with the important climate change legislation being considered by that caucus. The bill has the potential to destroy key Maori business interests and the policy bribes being offered by the Government are in reality token gestures. The Maori Party needs someone with a business background to really understand the impact on what is being proposed on business.

David Farrar reports that some in the Maori Party see Labour's hand behind the release of this dirt on Derek Fox's past.
