Harawira denies calling MPs 'n*****s'

Hone Harawira denies he called other Maori MPs 'house niggers'.

The Mana Party leader let loose on his Facebook page over MP's being told to stay away from a hui on water rights by the Prime Minister

Mr Harawira wrote Mr Key can tell his 'little house niggers' what to do but the rest of us 'don't give a shit for him or his opinions'.

But he now disputes the phrase was directed at other MPs saying journalists can't make the assumption and name people that they think he is talking about.

Mr Harawira says he's not going to play that game.

Instead he says his comment was a challenge to John Key.
