Bruce Gregory (Ngapuhi nui tonu) Retired Labour MP for the old Northern Maori electorate now known as Te Tai Tokerau

Last week at the 96th Labour Party annual conference a serious challenge to the Labour Party leadership was successfully seen off by incumbent David Shearer. Challenger David Cunniliffe was subsequently demoted to the back benches. Some political commentators are saying that far from under - minding David Shearers leadership these recent events have strengthened his position and public profile as leader with unanimous support from his caucus.

Ngawai talks with Dr Bruce Gregory about his recollection of the leadership struggles within the Labour Party during his time in parliament especially around the late David Lange era, when he was going head to head with Roger Douglas and Richard Prebble. Dr. Gregory also gives his view on whether or not David Shearer can withstand another challenge and how long does he think Shearer can be Labours leader, given the critics view that he’s wholly ineffective in a leadership role.

Tamati Reedy (Ngati Porou)

This year marks the 21st Birthday of the Maori Sports Awards. The Maori Sports Awards 2012, is being held this Saturday night at the Telstra Clear Pacific Events Centre, in Manukau City, South Auckland.

Te Tohu Taakaro o Aotearoa Incorporated was formed in 1991 by the late Albie Pryor who had a vision of promoting and encouraging Maori athletes in the pursuit of excellence in their chosen sports.
An inaugural Maori Sports Awards function was held at Turangawaewae Marae in 1991 to acknowledge Maori sporting achievement. The Maori Sports Awards is now a prestigious annual event that showcases outstanding Maori sportsmen and sportswomen.

Tamati Reedy is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Maori Sports Awards, he shares with Ngawai the history of the awards from its inception to now and shares his whakaaro on whether or not Maori Athletes are given the recognition they deserve by non Maori sporting authorities in Aotearoa.

Howard Davis: Review - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
