So, Labour's backdown overt the transport component of the Emissions Trading Scheme has not only alienated the Greens, but now the Maori Party is threatening to pull its support as well - http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=280&objectid=10508741. It's not often that this writer will dish out compliments to Tariana Turia, but she's right on the money when she says:
"Asked if it would continue to support the scheme, Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia said: "It's looking as if we won't. The Government can't go round promising or telling people one thing and then backing down because it's election year. You either genuinely believe this needs to happen and you've got a strategy to address the issues around climate change, or you haven't.""
Kia ora Tariana! In one sentence, you have exposed the Hollow Woman for the hypocrite that she is. Kia kaha!
