Oh. My. God.
You have to see the Native Affairs interview between Mihingarangi Forbes and Jamie Whyte to believe it.
It’s the most painful political suicide in broadcasting history. He doesn’t know what ‘Whanau Ora’ is. Holy fuck. Jamie not knowing what Whanau Ora is would be like Key not knowing what the National Party’s colours are.
How on earth was he allowed on the show so ill briefed? Prebs, what are you doing mate? This was an embarrassing meltdown that looks like a final chapter in the history of ACT.
Whyte’s ignorance of Maori and basic current affairs is so extraordinary I can’t see that level of stupid gaining any sort of electoral traction with the educated well to dos who vote ACT .
Well done Native Affairs, easily the best journalism in NZ.
