McCarten Wants Maori Support For His New Party

Matt McCarten today gives us his version of the history around the birth of New Zealand. Indeed it is very different to John Key's or Michael Cullen's. Will his views be appreciated by the Maori Party we wonder? We thought that they had the support of the down trodden, dispossessed and angry within Maoridom.

Although it forms only a small part of his article McCarten has some advice for Labour too

Labour's only possible chance of winning the general election is to hope it can nobble National's John Key by exposing him as a lightweight.

He would need to be a lightweight for this to work. And while he doesn't have the grasp of policy across all portfolios that Clark, Cullen and English display, he is getting better every day.
