National Member of Parliament

Pull yourself together Tariana

"Tariana Turia's speech to a Psychological Society Conference in Hamilton today must qualify as the most off-the-planet speech made by a politician in living memory," National MP Roger Sowry said today.

"She chose this function to rave about the effects of colonialism - comparing it to the holocaust, home-invasions and an attack by 'predators'.

"My advice to Ms Turia is to pull herself together," Mr Sowry said.
