No one tells Hone's mum what to do

No one tells Hone's mum what to do

Hone Harawira says no one will tell his mum what to do.

Heated discussions about who would escort the Prime Minister onto Te Tii Marae delayed John Key's welcome by over half an hour this morning.

The Mana Party MP says it's a job his mum, Titewhai, has done for years, and will continue to do.

He says she's a strong woman and recognises Waitangi celebrations as the best time to raise issues with the Prime Minister.

Mr Harawira says no one is more passionate about the Treaty and what it means than the Harawiras.
