Good politics

Whatever else might be said about the Whanau Ora programme  appointing Tariana Turia as the Minister is good politics.

She has asked for it, she is passionate about it, she believes it will work and now she’s responsible for ensuring it does.

However, that doesn’t mean this can be sidelined as a Maori issue which doesn’t concern anyone else.

Dysfunctional families aren’t peculiar to Maori and regardless of the ethnicity of the families, if they’re dysfunctional the problems associated with that are problems for our society as a whole.
