And then upon further questioning, he said that he wouldn’t have a problem if they dated an American or an Australian, but would not want them dating either a Maori or a Pacific Islander.
I don’t think I am wrong in saying it would be the lead item on TV news. The Race Relations Conciliator would have condemned it.
A dozen activists would have complained to the Human Rights Commission.
Every major newspaper would have condemned the MP in editorials and there would be many calls for them to be sacked. In fact I will give him his dues that he doesn’t bullshit and says what he believes – no matter what. But I do think he is getting off too lightly from what was a pretty awful thing to say.

Since my 30-day reading ban, I’ve been casting about for ways to entertain myself on public transportation. It’s the podcast spin-off of that explored the unanswered questions (like, WHO DID IT?
The highlight for me was the University of Virginia professor, Deirdre Enright.
Enright runs the Innocence Project at the UVA School of Law, and she was the only bright light in this whole dismal case.
It should be about whether it is acceptable for any Member of Parliament to openly express prejudice like Hone did.And that there are valuable lessons to be learned in all of our relationships, romantic and otherwise. You may be surprised by what your 13, 14, or 15 yr old considers . 4) They are still willing to listen to what you have to say. A European/Pakeha Member of Parliament is quoted as saying he would not be comfortable if his children dated a Maori.Digging into criminal trials post-conviction raises so many more questions than answers and casts such a long shadow over “justice” that my psyche shuts down, compelling me to turn away and pray no one I know or love ever has to face a criminal trial. After roughly 11.5 hours of podcasting, there are only more questions, which is why there are whole internet sites devoted to discussing Jay or the cell phone discrepancies.It’s probably why this murder was the perfect subject for a podcast.
I never thought much of it since I was the one with the outgoing personality, but looking back something was… He wore a confederate flag ring on one of his fingers.
