A King speaks, corridors of power shudder.
MARTYN 'BOMBER' BRADBURY: King Tuheitia's words of discouragement towards the Labour Party and NZ First have shaken the corridors of power and re-ignighted the political flame of an independent Maori voice in Parliament.
Local body elections heating up
WILLIE JACKSON: The race for the Auckland mayoralty and also council seats are heating up as the October polling day draws nearer and major political parties start infiltrating their members to these boards.
Fabulous Rio
WILLIE JACKSON: I have just finished staying eight days and nights in Rio De Janeiro and I can confirm that I am still alive!  Which might surprise some people given the terrible publicity that we have seen from the media here and internationally.  I can also confirm that I never saw or felt a mosquito, didn’t get mugged, maimed or shot at, drank the water, used the public toilets, walked down lots of side streets and talked to plenty of strangers.
