The National Party leader says criticism over his Waitangi Day speech is just a cynical set-up.

National’s kicked into election year by putting politics in the spotlight at Waitangi.

Government parties and the Opposition stood side-by-side as they were welcomed to the upper marae yesterday.

He’s been criticised for politicising the event, but he told Simon and Phil he spoke about what he thinks matters.
