Tuku a great choice.
WILLIE JACKSON: Te Tai Tokerau Labour MP Kelvin Davis is playing a clever game, he has welcomed the proposed alliance between Hone Harawira’s Mana and the Maori Party and says “It will be the Maori Party’s last move in politics”. He says this though because he knows that trouble looms..Read more

"Measuring what matters for Whanau, Kia tina ki runga, kia tamore ki raro"
WILLIE JACKSON: The Te Pou Matakana conference held in Auckland was a huge success for those delivering and driving the Whanau Ora kaupapa..Read more

Te Wiki o te Reo
WILLIE JACKSON: To celebrate Te Wiki o te reo Maori and Matariki I was asked to speak at Waterlea Primary School in Mangere Bridge. It was great watching all the kids doing their waiata and haka expertly even though they were all just early learners of the reo..Read more

Congratulations to Te Puea

No amount of dollars will be able to fix what happened to Teina Pora

Tribute: Sir Graham Latimer
WILLIE JACKSON: It is only right that I pay tribute to Sir Graham Latimer who passed away last week at the age of 90 years age. In the Maori world he will go down as one of the finest leaders of the last 50 years..Read more

Flavell Budget

The Politics of the Reo

Mayor Judd is a Hero
WILLIE JACKSON: It’s been an interesting last couple of weeks for New Plymouth mayor Andrew Judd, he announced that he would not be standing for the mayoralty again and he has been all over the national news since the announcement..Read more

The amazing Trump
WILLIE JACKSON: No chance, we all thought when billionaire celebrity Donald Trump first threw his hat into the ring to stand for the most powerful position in the world the US Presidency. Trump was to outrageous, to out there and just to crazy - well so we all thought to be able to get enough support for the Republican nomination to challenge for the big job..Read more

Housing flip flop
WILLIE JACKSON: It wasn’t the best 7 days for John Key who flip flopped on housing at the start of the week and was escorted into the weekend with front page news that his lawyer has been mysteriously caught up in the Panama foreign trust debacle..Read more

All Blacks on top again
WILLIE JACKSON: The All Blacks took another step in advancing rugby as a global game when they won the best team award at the Laureus awards last week. These awards are the Academy awards of world sport and our team beat some of the greatest sports outfits in the world..Read more

Time for a change.
WILLIE JACKSON: You have to applaud Dame Paula Rebstock for her warts and all report into the failings of Child Youth and Family and also take your hat off to Minister Anne Tolley’s acknowledgement that the system is broken and needs urgent fixing..Read more

Reasons for Truancy
WILLIE JACKSON; Through my roles as a former MP, broadcaster and CEO of a Social Service provider, the most common question I am asked is ‘how much money do you make?”.Read more

Poll on Maori
WILLIE JACKSON: The Māori Identity poll - or Maori-meter as it has been dubbed - will give organisations who work in this space a clearer view and evidence of the new urban migration of Māori - and more importantly how they see themselves in 2016..Read more

What to do about Radio New Zealand?
WILLIE JACKSON: Last year RNZ cut its last Maori dedicated news in prime time Manu Korihi from its airwaves and not a word of criticism was directed their way in the Pakeha media world.Read more

Nonsense from Radio NZ
WILLIE JACKSON: Recently I have been severely critical of Radio New Zealand’s Maori programming which came about because National radio cancelled their Maori News Te Manu Korihi last October.Read more

No to TPP
WILLIE JACKSON: Trade Minister Tim Groser’s legacy - the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) - has turned into a political minefield for Labour and could signal the downfall of former leader David Shearer..Read more

The year in politics
WILLIE JACKSON: Looking back on the political year the MP who really stands out for me has to be the old campaigner Winston Peters..Read more

Maori and Labour.

Labour reshuffle
WILLIE JACKSON;The reshuffle this week of Labour’s front bench by leader Andrew Little will be the making or breaking of the party and a guide of just how successful they will be at the next general election..Read more

Jonah and Tikanga
WILLIE JACKSON;There’s probably not much more I can add regarding the tragic death of the first and probably only global rugby superstar Jonah Lomu..Read more

Key should apologise
WILLIE JACKSON: Prime Minister John Key showed a complete lack of judgement, and also a slight chink in his armour when he went on the offensive over the Kiwis being detained for deportation by the Australian Government on Christmas Island..Read more

All over for Len
WILLIE JACKSON: News that Labour Party MP Phil Goff will run for Auckland mayor has unfortunately all but signed Len Brown’s mayoralty death warrant..Read more
