The public speaks....

A few weeks ago I nearly posted about how the public appeared to swing in behind Dr Brash when news of his alleged affair broke.

I checked back with the Stuff site feedback page today & those dirty fickle public have just as quickly swung back out it seems.

Some nice letters though, one of which I've copied below.

According to Don Brash there are no Maori living in New Zealand. You're either 100 per cent Maori or your are what? Pakeha? Or maybe just an 'ordinary' New Zealander.

Next time people get excited about Maori crime, or moan about the increased use of the Maori language, you can all feel a lot happier knowing it is in fact New Zealand crime and the New Zealand language. No more Maori means no more scapegoating, because you can't have it both ways.

Your say: Brash in hot water after 'evil' comments - Have your say on

Winston gets a bit of stick too.
