Peters ruling out co-governance with Labour
Māori Development Minister Willie Jackson says he won’t waste time debating Winston Peters.
The New Zealand first leader threw up the wero over what he says is the Labour Party’s push for apartheid via co-governance.
Mr Jackson says it’s sad to see such an accomplished politician rejecting something he has supported in the past because he is desperate for a few votes.
“This is a guy who advocated for Māori to work in tandem with pakeha in terms of co-governance and then he goes off his rocker when he hears me speaking about it and all I am doing is actually putting out what out people have been saying for years which is we want to be part of New Zealand society, we don’t just want to be the mihi people, we don’t just want to be confined to the natural resources area, we want to be part of society every day,” he says.
