Nothing highlights the denial of colonialism quite like the Parihaka apology
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: We must never allow the perfect to defeat the good, but the fact that it's taken 138 years to formally apologise for the tragedy of Parihaka speaks volumes about the cultural denial of the negative effects of colonialism.
