Susan Cullen vs Nanaia Mahuta

Susan Cullen drawing a line across her own neck. An omen foretelling her political future perhaps?

Susan Cullen drawing a line across her own neck. An omen foretelling her political future perhaps?

The election inches nearer, and Susan Cullen plans her attack on September 20 against the incumbent Nanaia Mahuta from Labour.

It is obvious that Cullen, despite her millions, hasn’t got a chance to unseat Mahuta from the peasant-ridden Hauraki-Waikato electorate. The best that the Maori Party can do is have a stab at the electorate votes. We’ll say that the move to bring in Cullen is really about making her feel important and she brings a ton of cash to the table.

Of course… these days more than ever politics is about friends with benefits.

Maori Party has a Mahuta strategy

The Maori Party’s newly-selected candidate for Hauraki-Waikato has fired the first shot in the battle for the seat.


Susan Cullen said supporters of sitting Labour MP Nanaia Mahuta should switch their votes, because she could get into Parliament on Labour’s list.

Ms Cullen says not backing Ms Mahuta would would put more kaupapa Maori MPs into Parliament. Hauraki-Waikato could place strategic votes and get two Maori MPs for the price of one – her as the electorate MP and Ms Mahuta as a list MP.

Ms Mahuta did not return Te Manu Korihi’s messages seeking comment.

The Mana Party is yet to select its candidate although its previous candidate for Hauraki-Waikato isn’t ruling herself in or out.

Angeline Greensill said on Monday candidate selection was underway, with a hui being held this coming weekend.

She is now dealing with environmental and Treaty issues for Tainui, after retiring from her academic role at Waikato University.

Ms Greensill said Ms Cullen, who she described as an entrepreneur, had enough money to run a strong campaign for the Maori Party.

Homelessness Cullen platform

Susan Cullen said homelessness was one of the kaupapa she promised to address if she became the MP for Hauraki-Waikato.

She said she was seeing more homelessness in provincial towns, such as Morrinsville, Te Awamutu, and Cambridge.

Ms Cullen said it was a new issue in smaller towns, where locals had not seen people sitting on the streets begging before.

She said she had personally picked some people up, taken them home, given them a feed, put them in a motel, and given them a bit of a talking to.

Ms Cullen said the problem was being driven by the use of synthetic drugs, joblessness, and hopelessness.

    I think Susan may have too much baggage attached especially over how she made a few bucks. Having said that i believe she has has done nothing more then what others are doing in NZ.

    Its called “leverage”, just ask Judith Collins and her boss Donkey.You never get to see what hidden deals these two rats have got going for themselves. They are too clever to get caught let alone be transparent and use company invoices like Susan did. Technically Susan did no wrong. It was a business that delivered some clever programs.How it was delivered is open to debate?

    Susan only survived because of the internal investigation that was headed up by a very good man within the maori side of the education system operating out of one of the Auckland offices.

    Make no mistake if that guy had not been heading up that group the “old boy pakeha establishment” would have chewed her and her dad up and spat them out.
    At the big end of town New Zealand is a racist country with very fixed views. Brown boys getting above their station is frowned upon. Brown girls oh hell no thats going too far. Its fine if you are a sports person or a singer but that is it matey.

    It is accepted that the white boys can rort the country at will but that is not the case for the brown boys unless the “niggas are rorting each other” which is okay.
    If you want proof of the disparity just look no further then MP Phillip Taito Field and Judith Collins. The justice system in NZ is absolute shit and half the judges are probably related to each other and rooting each other. Bunch of tossers.

    The presstitutes can write all they like about the tired old “Crusher” but she is protected and nothing will happen to her other then embarrasesment and it is important to have friends who can protect you. She is in the club so she is fine.

    I made the BIG mistake of calling her a Bitch who needed to stay in Governance and leave the operations to the operational staff. She sacked me for telling the truth that nobody else would say. Lesson learnt? Maybe?

    I heard her interview on Waatea yesterday. She is highly articulate, has some great ideas, says all the right things, is engaging, knowledgeable, and has pledged her salary to an admirable cause. hmmmmm….

    I think I will choose never. None of them deserve my vote. Especially since both are related to Simon the Maui Dolphin Exterminator.
