The Internet Mana Party has had another media blowout, with Hone Harawira stopping an interview and walking off after just one question.
Mr Harawira refused to talk about his party’s U-turn on cannabis and would only take questions on a Te Tai Tokerau candidates’ debate.
He was once one of Parliament’s toughest opponents to cannabis, but Mr Harawira has flip flopped. Mana now wants to see decriminalisation – fitting with the preferred position of Kim Dotcom’s Internet Party.
Looks like $4 million doesn’t just buy you some candidates, but also some policies!
To understand how massive Hone’s u-turn is, consider that in March Hone said he wants to execute legal high sellers.
Also in March, the Herald reports:
Mr Harawira said he did not agree with Mr Dotcom’s policy that marijuana should be decriminalised.
Yet now he does. We knows who calls the shots now.
