Labour rammed through several controversial changes to our constitutional arrangements in government against strenuous opposition from National, but now they’re not happy when the boot is on the other foot.
Labour expects the Government to consult with it over a constitutional review to consider such issues as Maori representation, leader Phil Goff says.
The review was part of the National-Maori Party supply and confidence agreement and a paper on it has been considered by Cabinet at least twice.
Mr Goff said constitutional issues should be decided on a non-partisan basis but the Government had made no effort to contact his party over the review.
It’s a bit late Mr Goff.
