And while their on it...

Got another couple of interesting quotes quotes from busy data miners around National and the Maori seats.

Dr Brash: "We can see no justification for retaining those seats. (Dom Post 25 Nov 2004)

Te Heuheu argued against a National Party regional conference remit in 2003 to abolish Māori seats. "They can't remove rights unilaterally...Maori should make that choice." (Dom Post 5 May 2003)

Tony Ryall: The National Party's policy has always been that the Maori seats will go when the Maori people choose for them to go. (Hansard 3 Aug 1993)

I wonder if there is more internal division on the subject than we can see.
