Te Tai Tokerau: Harawira better for Maori?

There has been suggestion (here) that voting for Hone Harawira would be better for Maori, and that the Maori Party should pull out of Te Tai Tokerau.

This is another one of those posts that I want to limit what I say, because defamation does not look good, particularly on the sheet of a law student. But, to me, the only way voting for Hone Harawira would be good for Maori in general, is if Maori in general are significantly extreme in their beliefs. Saying “it gives Maori more choice” isn’t a good reason. It isn’t a choice if you don’t believe in the extreme policies Hone Harawira pushes.
