“National Party has never been a natural fit for Maori”- Barry Soper, 2018
That’s not true, there was a very good fit with Dignity Culture Maori but these were swept away by the Victimhood Culture Maori who found common cause in the guise of Ratana who gave their “brown mandate” to Victimhood Culture Labour 1.0.
