What’s in it for National when its core voters are likely to be the ones upset by any change? The only thing I can think off is some deal behind the scenes to keep the Maori Party sweet. But that could easily backfire. Many at the grassroots oppose the growing ascendency of Maori in all things ceremonial.
I watched Paul Henry last night and thought he was right to lampoon the idea.
National has heaps of good news on the economic front to focus on.
This is not a can of worms to open now.
