Te Papa took a beating for suggesting Maori cultural values are a reason to treat genders differently. So what happens when Parliament legislates that Maori must be treated differently?
Seeing as the topic de jour is the invidiousness of discriminatory treatment based on characteristics such as gender or race, I assume we have universal condemnation of a law change solely designed to prevent Maori doing something non-Maori are entitled to do?
And am I alone in being somewhat confused at Rodney Hide delightedly announcing that Act has won this law change, whilst also proclaiming "ACT is the only Party that has consistently stood for the rule of law and one law for all"?
Discuss, with or without reference to Te Papa.
