Brash v Harawira

Don Brash and Hone Harawira face off with the Walrus in the chair. Watch it here:

Part One.

Part Two.


  1. Disgraceful interviewing technique from the TVNZ Walrus, they barely got off the treaty subject. Hone managed to speak for most of the interview in waffly platitudes that were accepted without an rigour or a chance at serious rebuttal or policy analysis.
    No discussion as to how we can improve our economic lot for all people of this country.

    Brash did well to point out the nonsense of treaty "principles". Good that he mentioned the ETS. Interesting that Hone came out against the idea of separate race-based nations - virtually an admission that a parasitic class cannot sustain itself without feeding on those who produce.

    It was a pity Don Brash didn't argue that New Zealanders aren't stock-farm animals in the way that Hone thinks they are - "Maori", "European/Pakeha", "Asian", etc.

    Hone would like to put all New Zealanders through a drafting gate, like cattle, with their rights decided accordingly.

  3. I think the interview was rather predictable & bland as a result. I thought Don did well, Hone came across as quite sullen & with a chip on his shoulder.

    "...chip on his shoulder"

    you think?

  5. Don looked rather frail and old, and didn't debate with much force of conviction.

    Grievance honed to perfection.

  7. @anon 1154...
    and so the myth of old = hopeless is propagated and nurtured by the leftist tards.
    Like most of your current attacks on your opposition, it FAILS; get a new angle, that one is failing and is blatantly disrespectful of seniors and their ability to contribute.
