Goff gets one 100% right.

Labour Party leader Phil Goff is demanding stern punishment for under-fire MP Hone Harawira.

The attitudes behind his statements, not simply the language, have no place in New Zealand politics, he says.

He’s got to be held accountable for what he did, no excuses.

Phil Goff seems to be the only politician to have gone for the throat with the simple reality that the problem is not how Harawira said something but the essence of WHAT he said. It is racist and reflects an attitude incompatable with being an MP in this country.

Harawira probably picked a bad time to piss Goff off considering the aniversary.

Good work Phil.
