Mis-translation to blame for "offensive" article, says Danish MP Marie Krarup

Sean Plunket speaks to Danish MP Marie Krarup, following reports of an opinion article she wrote on the back of a trip to New Zealand. The article has seen the politician receive hate mail from angry New Zealanders, after it was reported she painted an unsavoury picture of the powhiri she received last month. When translated, Krarup wrote that she was greeted "with a Maori dance ritual, with a half-naked man in grass skirt, shouting and screaming in Maori." Describing a Marae, she said "it was decorated with God-figures with angry faces and large erect penises."
