Maori party MP Hone Harawira is again courting controversy, aggressively abusing other politicians in what was supposed to be a public apology.
The new comments came after the MPs public apology for sending an expletive-filled email which sparked accusations of racism.
He apologised for the language used in the email , but not the message.
Talking on the radio after having just apologised for calling white people motherf.....s, Harawira commented on Labour leader Phil Goff's calls to have him suspended, calling him a bastard.
"I'm saying to Phil Goff `beware mate, beware before you start throwing stones'."
Harawira told Radio Waatea that "Goff and his mates are responsible for the passing of a piece of legislation described as the single largest land nationalisation statute in the history of Aoteroa," refering to the Seabed and Foreshore Act.
He goes on to say that "If I should be suspended for swearing, then Goff and his mates should be lined up against a wall and shot."
Goff had earlier ripped into Harawira, saying there would be a howl of protest if a pakeha had said similar comments about another ethnic group, and that Harawira should be suspended.
He says for Harawira to try to defend his actions behind culture, when it's a lack of character which led to them - is totally unacceptable.
He will hold a news conference at Auckland University's Waipapa
Marae at 3pm on Tuesday afternoon.
