Labour Party and the Whakapapa of Neoliberalism in Aotearoa

Had a curious Facebook experience when a Maori MP expressed his intent to challenge the PM over his government's attitude to poverty. My comment was a wee reminder that the whakapapa of neo-liberalism in this country begins with his own party...

My comment was deleted by the end of the day.

It is not advisable to be ashamed of your whakapapa. 'Tis what it is.

Until Labour accepts who and what they are - a neo-liberal attuned political party with a poor track record of helping Maori - they are no good to Maori.
