Native Affairs - Colin Craig Panel

By Mihingarangi Forbes

For the second time in as many weeks Conservative Party leader Colin Craig has been accused of cutting and pasting his party's policy platform.

With a campaign that sounds like a mash up of  Don Brash's Orewa speech and a Lord of the Rings trailer, the conservative party is proposing 'one law to rule us all'.

In a series of ads, Craig's calling for Māori seats to be abolished along with an end to the treaty claims process.

Now, Winston Peters has accused Craig of ripping off New Zealand First's policies including a 20k tax free income band and tougher penalties for crims.

Earlier this evening Mihingarangi Forbes spoke to Mr Craig about his party's policies and began by asking him whether or not he's commited to Te Reo Māori.
