Shane Jones – Maori Development Name Game Distraction

Funding of roles:

Former MP Shane Jones giving new Maori names to state agencies and programs is a waste of effort while Maori’s broader social and economic concerns go unaddressed.

Former MP Shane Jones giving new Maori names to state agencies and programs is a waste of effort while Maori’s broader social and economic concerns go unaddressed.

Mr Jones says the big challenge for Maori is to develop their young men and women.

Too many people are trapped on Jobseeker’s Allowance, while political energy is wasted giving things Maori names that most people can’t pronounce.

“In many cases it has nothing to do with kaupapa when we have all this wasted potential and Maori MPs need to redouble their efforts on the right thing and that is the development of our people and less smear every new report or project that is never delivered with an even more romantic Maori name anyway,” says Mr Jones.
