    And if Mahuta was indeed responsible largely for the return of the Maori vote to Labour as somebody else has suggested,

    Andrew Little praised her efforts on Te Karere earlier today. I don't know if she deserves where she has been placed but she has been selected and I cant see why her being selected needs more scrutiny than any of the others. I don't see how Nanaia needs singling out as "could do better" We can go right down the front bench and say the same but whatever floats your boat. One thing I do know is that her Family is highly respected and carries much respect from Maori in general.

    You’re asking a son of Tuhoe for comment on Tainui? ;-)

    They all look the same ;)

    I don't need to . Don't seem to get holes in my teeth. Only have 2 fillings I got 35 years ago so I use the Dentist for check ups around the corner from where I live. He's just handy. Ariki and Mana are qualities that Mahuta has. Perhaps Russell can enlighten us, now he's on Maori TV. Maybe Toi Iti could help with information about Mahuta's standing. I only know that the name Mahuta carries weight.

    She’s also an important link to the Kingitanga.

    Yeah. her Mother and her Father. Although My point may not have been made to the standard that Sacha requires, it was that she is significant in the community which does count as votes for the Party.

    I don’t really care if she’s an effective operator in the House – although she is competent – her job, like most MPs, is elsewhere.

    Mahuta is prominent in her community and carries much respect from Iwi. In fact her Family have for many years. Like Harawira ,time spent at Marae is a huge part of a portfolio . Respect is earnt there and she has that all over the Country so she must be doing something ok.

    ETA. Keir you beat me to it again. :) I’ll just shuddup and read your comments. Don't let me down now y’hear.

    Mahuta does have an 18 year track record to look back on –

    God, she must be soo old , like those Rolling Stones or somefing. Guess they'll be kicking her to the curb soon too eh ;)

    Little winning certainly does not give me much hope that we will have a CGT and other sensible taxation changes within the span of the next decade.

    Yet he gave Finance to Robertson, who clearly supported CGT and raising Super for starters. Methinks Little is well aware of public opinion on all sides.

    Maybe a little unjust. More likely his critics are altering their views by the minute as Little steps out in public as opposition leader.

    Equally unjust is to stab the Party in the back and delegate the Party to incompetence (due to it’s internal process) before the guy had a chance to step out as the Opposition Leader. Frankly I think that’s been pretty selfish, something I have not much time for.
