Whale Oil greases mana
Mana candidate John Minto is challenging the Maori Party to explain how its relationship with National is mana enhancing in light of the Dirty Politics revelations.
Attack blogger Cameron Slater, whose leaked emails formed the basis of the book, today published an item on his Whale Oil site supporting Maori Party leader Te Ururoa Flavell’s bid to retain his Waiariki seat.
Mr Slater pointed out the Maori Party could remain in coalition with National.
Mr Minto says that’s despite the vast majority of Maori voters wanting to see a change in government.
He says a daily drip feed of damming emails and posts suggest corruption could be the predominant culture within the ninth floor of the Beehive, which is now starting to taint not just National but its coalition partners including the Maori Party.
