Winston Peters takes aim at voodoo sociology
Forget the Māori Party, New Zealand First is rounding up votes for October’s election.
Leader Winston Peters says a lot of Māori are turning up at his meetings because they know what he stands for.
“And they know one thing – that a whole lot of these other parties have got all of this Treaty of Waitangi gobbledygook and what they’re going to do but none of it gets down to the ordinary Māori. We deal with ordinary Māori issues like wages, like decent wages, like health access, the things they really want, and uplifting and investing in their real assets, not what I call sociological department of Auckland University voodoo stuff which is supposed to be great for Māori but never gets down to the poor people at the bottom and never will,” he says.
Last night’s Newshub – Reid Research Poll showed New Zealand First up 1.1 percent to 4.1 percent as it edges closer to the 5 percent needed to return to Parliament.
