Andrew Little

Independent Maori Statutory Board
OPINION: Last week I received good news in the High Court that my challenge against the Auckland Independent Maori Statutory Board decision to exclude me as a Mataawaka representative was wrong..Read more

Little's Time
OPINION: Andrew Little has to do a lot if he is to make Labour a formidable opposition, giving them any hope of toppling National in three years’ time. Little was on Tuesday voted as the man to lead Labour into a new era of politics - this was on the back of major support he got from his union mates..Read more

Local Politics
OPINION: John Key’s comment about advising the Chilean president that there was a Kiwi in her country, who she wouldn’t want to invite for lunch, went horribly wrong although it was intended as a joke..Read more

Key on the right track
OPINION: The war against terrorism is a no win situation for Prime Minister John Key. He’s damned if he doesn’t do enough and damned if he does too much and goes over the top..Read more

End of an Era
OPINION: The decision by TVNZ to outsource their Maori and Pacific Island programming has brought an end to the Maori and Pacific departments..Read more

Grant Robertson
OPINION: I got an understanding of how good a candidate Labour Leader aspirant Grant Robertson was when he joined me on Radio Live last week..Read more

Labour Maori make their move.
OPINION: The Maori MP's in Labour have laid down the gauntlet to their Pakeha colleagues with the challenge from Hauraki Waikato MP Nanaia Mahuta for the Labour Party leadership..Read more

Hone will be back
OPINION: It was great that Hone Harawira declared his intention to stand again for parliament in 2017..Read more

Wife 'tweeting' may cost Cunliffe
OPINION: Karen Price, the wife of embattled MP David Cunliffe may have just cost her man any chance of again taking over as leader of the under-pressure Labour party..Read more

Opportunity Lost
OPINION: It was doomed to fail said all the so called experts after the vote for Internet Mana and Hone Harawira collapsed on election night.Read more

Why a Partnership School?
OPINION: Last week it was confirmed that my organisation the Manukau Urban Maori Authority had the opportunity to start and sponsor a Partnership School..Read more

How did it end up like this?
OPINION: I couldn’t believe what I was hearing when Mana candidate Kereama Pene said on Maori Television that he wanted Labour’s Peeni Henare to beat the Maori Party candidate Rangi McLean for the Tamaki Makaurau seat..Read more

Collins crushed in political cruncher
OPINION: Judith Collins sacking was forced on John Key but the Prime Minister made sure it was dropped on a ‘slow news day.’.Read more

Winston the Kingmaker
OPINION: The dirty politics scandal looks like it’s caught up on the government after the latest polls show that the comeback king Winston Peters could be the kingmaker come Election Day..Read more

Dirty Politics
OPINION: What a fascinating last couple of weeks it’s been in politics. There seems no doubt that the entry of Kim Dotcom into national politics has created a frenzy never seen before..Read more

Talent might not be enough
OPINION: Lately I have been mediating political debates on behalf of Maori Radio..Read more

Race Card Time
OPINION: You know there is an election on when politicians start playing the race card. And that’s what’s been happening over the last few weeks..Read more

Sad for Claudette
OPINION: I’m disappointed that National list MP Claudette Hauiti has pulled the pin on her political career..Read more

Collins in trouble again
OPINION: Just when Justice Minister Judith Collins thought it was safe to start swimming again in the political pool, another jaws like scandal has emerged that could take the air out of her inflatable life jacket..Read more

Ministerís Maori Language Strategy Is Wrong
OPINION: It seems unbelievable that the Minister of Maori Affairs Pita Sharples is intent on returning the leadership of the Maori language back to the tribes..Read more

Who cares about Hone?
OPINION: Many Maori have been suspicious of mainstream media and our police force for some years now and the recent shooting at Hone Harawira’s office is another example of how shabbily our people are treated by these organisations..Read more

Trust needs shakeup
OPINION: Unlike many critics I refuse to accept that the Kohanga Reo National Trust is an organisation that reeks of corruption..Read more

Harawira's deal with Dotcom raises issues
OPINION: The criticism around Hone Harawira doing a deal with Kim Dotcom is not only unfair but raises questions of hypocrisy and racism..Read more

Bomber Bradbury can't disguise his envy of Cameron Slater & how successful his blog is. Make no mistake, Cameron Slater is incredibly polarising, at times deeply offensive & can cross the line but Bomber told straight up lies trying to say the content & commentary on the left wing blog sites was in a different "stratosphere" to Whaleoil. You get idiots on both sides of the political spectrum & a quick search ofthe respective site will confirm that. He also repeated the same old lines from Hager's book almost all of which are unsubstantiated about OIA's, blackmail etc etc. Yet Bradbury, as a self proclaimed Marxist had his hand out for a few pieces of silver from Kim Dot Com (who as shown treats his workers like dirt). Credibility ruined right there Bomber.

Cameron Slaters still an obnoxious, egotistical moron, waste of time interviewing him, surely it's not that hard (leading up to an election) to find someone really worthy to interview? Oily whales I think not.!

Bomber is a such a dishonest person and extremely jealous of Cam Slater, Bomber is involved with the convicted criminal and corrupt dotcom.
