    Angry Well what a surprise!

    So the ever suffering taxpayer did fund Harawira’s junket to South Africa.

    Harawira, who received permission from the Speaker's office to travel to South Africa, did not attend the official function or Sunday's burial, but went to a private service at the Mandela family home in Soweto.

    He performed a haka before Mandela's casket with the blessing of Mandela's grandson. His wife performed a karanga mate or lament.

    "I did it because it needed to be done," Harawira said.

    He was taking a message to the Mandela family "on behalf of the people who really cared for him and his struggle against apartheid".
    Respect for that man.

    I don't share his beliefs but he was there with the blessing of the family, and what he done means a shitload more then a bunch of weak chinned, suit wearing bitches undertaking some handshakes.

    Should have made the weasels stay home and just funded Harawira.

    What about all the WHITE Nat & Labour polititions who go on annual junkets to some resort City, under the guise of a meeting/conference.
    That happens EVERY year.

    He was invited to a private family service.
    That sounds more "official" than the "official delegation" to me.

    If you guy’s want to support that racist Harawira do so by all means.

    You pay his fare, just don’t waste any of my money.

    That goes for Key and his hypocritical junket too.
