Hone Harawira calls out the Maori Party as servants to John Key.


Harawira is angry that the Maori Party MPs have been told not to attend a national hui over water rights next week after John Key banned his MPs from attending.

The Maori Party is dismissing claims made by Hone Harawira that they are servants of the Prime Minister.

John Key has told his MPs they are not allowed to attend a hui on water rights next week and Mr Harawira has hit out at suggestions the Maori Party may not send its MPs either.

He's called them Mr Key's slaves using the dreaded n-word to make his point clear.

Te Ururoa Flavell says Mr Harawira's comments are unfortunate, but they're what people have come to expect.
