Why the Maori Party won’t walk out

The Maori Party hoped to be a part of any government, regardless of its leanings. Then [Pita Sharples] confessed: “Actually, I got so used to the increase in salary I told the Prime Minister you’d better be good because if the other guys get in, I’ll go sell myself over there to keep my ministerial salary. I just got a new house, man – I can’t afford it on a backbencher salary so I’m up for grabs.” Whoops.
