The Aotearoa Legalise Cannibas Party is challenging Tariana Turia in Te Tai Hauauru bi-election and party leader Michael Appleby talks to Willie about why they alone are standing a candidate. Willie also talks to political strategist, Matt McCarten about how bi-elections are won and lost. Rodney Hide’s private member’s Bill to end all Treaty claims within the next 10 years has been put onto Parliament’s agenda and he will explain what its about. The Maori Party has generated a lot of interest so far and earlier this week, Jim Perry spoke to Professor Ranginui Walker and Pita Paraone about their views
