He's become a regular speaker there. They seem to like his views on welfare dependency, his bashing of single parents on benefits and of course bashing Maori. Pulling the race card has proven to be a sure way for Brash to raise his profile and increase support for National. Brash has consistently chal- lenged the treaty claims process and argued that Maori should not benefit at the expense of other New Zealanders through settlements with the Crown. And he refuses to accept the validity of the Treaty of Waitangi which he argues is irrelevant in today's world. In 2004, his views resonated with many Kiwis and support for National jumped by 17 percent. Brash knows that there is still a significant groundswell of support for his view that Maori should not be treated any differently to Pakeha and that to do so promotes racial separatism. But his Return to Orewa speech last week was not just about bashing Maori. It was a thinly veiled challenge to John Key and the liberal wing of the National Party whose meet in the middle'' style of governing is out of step with the more rad- ical, true-blue Nationals like Brash who are reminiscent of right wingers of the Muldoon era. Their economic policies culminated in runaway free mar- ket experiments that damaged this country. Brash represents the old guard of National and has a significant group of supporters. I also think that his latest round of Maori bashing is more about taking attention off his involvement in Huljich Wealth Management where he recently resigned as CEO and sold off his shares just before the Securities Commission turned its attention to the company. He'll be worried, as he should be, over their pending investi- gation because his integrity comes under scrutiny. An integrity that he says Maori lose when we have Maori seats, a Maori party and special treatment from the treaty. For the millionth time I need to say that Maori do have special status arising out of the treaty. Maori have indigenous rights that are recognised inter- nationally. That's not separatism, that's simply recognition for the part that Maori played in establishing our constitution. You and your redneck supporters should try to under- stand that Mr Brash. IS YOUR POOL READY FOR CHRISTMAS ? www.pph.co.nz 18F Clark St, New Lynn - Ph: 826 0738 NOW OPEN Sunday 10am - 2pm (Opp. Placemakers) All pool chemical All pool services Automatic cleaners from $500 Barracuda Pool cleaners from $600 Salt water chlorinators from $1200 Versatile basil Yates Seed of the Month for December 2010 is Basil Gourmet Mix, a collection of attractive, easy-to-grow, aromatic, flavour-filled basil varieties. As well as traditional sweet basil, this lucky dip selection includes: Thai basil: The perfect accompaniment for light Asian dishes, Thai basil has a special piquancy. Lemon basil: A blend of lemon and basil makes this herb one of the best for flavouring fish. Cinnamon basil: Glossy, bright green leaves have a spicy cin- namon taste with an undertone of cloves. Purple basil: With its richly-coloured leaves, purple basil is sometimes grown solely for its orna- mental qualities. But the leaves have a sweet spiciness that is quite distinct. Basil grows best in the warm weather and, at this time of year, seeds can be sown directly into garden beds. Sowing plenty of seed will ensure you end up with a good selection of varieties. Thin out or transplant seedlings so that they're no closer than 20cm apart. Water regularly, all basils hate drought, and feed every couple of weeks with Thrive Sol- uble Plant Food, which can be applied in a liquid form.
