The Māori challenge for Judith Collins
|17 Jul 2020 12:48 PM|
Judith Collins is now the Leader of the National Party after Todd Muller's hapless term as leader imploded.
Put aside Judith's legacy of dirty politics, or her offensive comments on welfare, or her deeply questionable comments on climate change, put all of that to one side and let's build bridges with Judith where we can, and in that vein, let's focus on her public comments that she would like to see National Party candidates stand in the Māori seats.
I think this would be a positive move. If Māori concerns and voices were being listened to by the National Party through their Maori electorate candidates, maybe the National Party wouldn't implement policy that was so cruel and detrimental to Māori in the first place?
If Judith ran candidates in the Māori electorates it would finally kill off that stupid National Party policy to remove the Māori electorates.
But most importantly, running candidates in the Māori electorates would allow Judith to stand up to the racist part of her own Party who see the Māori electorates as 'Māori privilege'.
By running National candidates in the Māori electorates, Judith could cast off the racist legacy of Don Brash while standing up to the bigots in her own party.
So, will she?
