"Race relations" on the TV1 head-to-head leaders debate
On Treaty of Waitangi settlements: "We're tough negotiators" - so she's boasting about screwing Maori over and pretending the process is "fair"? Well how can it be? - it's not the courts ordering remedies (remember she legislates against that if they think it might even be a possibility) it is small groups of families forced into large groups that the Crown wants to deal with, told that they will not get anything above a pre-set amount (typically exactly $40m regardless of what the claim is) on a take it or leave it basis... is that a fair negotiation? At least she admitted she was being harsh - but said it as if she was proud of it! If she's harsh on one group is she harsh on all, and if not, why?
On Maori party supporting her government "last cab off the rank" - Maori must be getting the message loud and clear by now. Labour will lose all 7 seats.
On immigration: everything is great and there's a skilled category and people aren't in crappy jobs anymore. Well, they certainly are - catch a cab in Auckland or visit a convenience shop in Auckland and claim that qualified immigrants aren't under-used in shitty jobs. Brash of course didn't counter her unsupported assertion.
When asked "who is a Maori?" Instead of saying: "I don't care about race" or "unlike under Labour's policies that won't be the question National will ask when making policy..." or even "That's a question that a Pakeha can't really answer" etc. instead, right on cue, the slow motion car wreck that Sainsbury dreamt, starting happening. He said (probably with a prolonged "Errrrr") "Well, legally..." and ended up about percentages etc.- at one point he looked like he might be going to pull out a phrenology kit. What an idiot. If he says he doesn't care about race and then starts telling Maori who they are and aren't, like a racial hygiene quack from the 1930s then what credibility does he have? Idiot. He's like a human muppet.
On Maori Party compromise on abolishing Maori seats he refused to rule it out. Ha!
On immigration: Clark belted him with probation idea is treating them like "criminals" - and he left it hanging with a series of denials. The guy is such an amateur. He forgets she's not human: it's a vampire zombie in a lifeless, disfigured, humanoid husk.
