Should we strip Oranga Tamariki of its name?
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: You get the feeling that the Ministry of Vulnerable Children's name change to Oranga Tamariki was a brown washing exercise to gloss over the much more violent reality of what this new agency would be doing.

It's okay to kōrero, it's okay to be Māori
Dr Rawiri Taonui: In Tauranga last week there was a ‘It’s okay to be White’ leaflet drop. Complaints also came to light against netball teams from Māori schools for speaking te reo on court.
