Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: The desperation driving Judith Collins in her attempt to bring back to life the ghost of Don Brash's Orewa Speech by consistently referring to co-governance as 'Separatism' and 'Segregation' is not only ugly and disingenuous, it flies in the face of National's own history of co-governance with Māori.

The He Puapua report is responding to the UN obligations Key's Government signed us up to and National negotiated a very fair co-governance model with Tūhoe.

To now frame co-governance as a secret agenda to circumvent Democracy is almost Qanon level lunacy.

Personally, I think that this is not only race-baiting hypocrisy, it's also a doomed strategy.

In 2023, for the first time ever, Millennials + Gen Xers will be a larger voting block than Boomers.

The next generation are not as afraid and reactionary of co-governance with Māori which leaves National fishing for votes in an ever decreasing puddle.

Voters aren't looking for willful malice from politicians, they are looking for solutions.
