He hui nui kei te haere ake ki taamaki ki te uru hei aata wherawhera i te ara whakamua mo te maangai o te Taitokerau, ara, mo Hone Harawira. Aa, ahakoa toona korenga i te whare paaremata, ka whai mana tonu oona hiahia. E ai ki te puurongo a Tina Wickliffe, kua pare tuaraa te mema mo te taitokerau ki te tuu a tana roopu i runga i te kaupapa aahuarangi.
An important meeting is being held in west Auckland tonight to discuss the way forward for te Taitokerau MP Hone Harawira. And despite his absence in parliament, he's still getting what he wants. According to Tina Wickliffe's report the Taitokerau MP has turned his back on his party's position on emmissions trading
I whai waa a hone harawira ki te tuku poroporoaki ki a hawea
vercoe i te raa nei, engari mo teenei waa kaare oona hiahia kia
poroporoakitia tana roopu. Heoi i a ia e noho wahanguu ana e
haamama ana ngaa waha o reipa.
Hone Harawira farewelled Hawea Vercoe today, but for now he doesn't want to say goodbye to his party. While he remains silent, labour's got plenty to say.
Shane Jones: "Unfortunately for the leadership the only member in their party who's listening at this stage to the membership is the person they're trying to sack."
Ehara i te mea i taiapatia e Hone Harawira oona kiriweti ki te
kaupapa aahurangi e taunakihia ana e aana hoa
Hone Harawira hasn't shied away from expressing concern over the ETS legislation supported by his parliamentary colleagues.
Te Ururoa Flavell: "Tokowha e tautoko ana"

waahi rua taa raatau roopu i runga i teenei kaupapa.
But the Maori party is insisting their party isn't in disarray over this issue.
Kaare i roa ake i te kauhau a Shane Jones i tukua teenei paanuiv
e te perehitini tuarua o te paati Maori a te orohi Paul. Hei

Harawira anoo i tuhi reta ki ana hoa paaremata me te whakahau, kia
kaua teetahi e tuku i tana pooti i runga i teenei take.
And that's the issue, Te Karere understands that Hone Harawira sent a letter to his parliamentary colleagues asking that they refrain from casting his vote.

Vapi Kupenga:"Kei te whakarongo a hone harawira ki te iwi, ko

"Hone Harawira is listening to what the constituency wants, but the leaders of the Maori party are not."
Shane Jones: "No doubt he'll be back and I predict sir if that man survives, that man will take over that party."
Hei te haurua i te ono karaka, ki taamaki ki te uru, kei te
