Pita Sharples making sense

Pita Sharples dons his “sensible voice of the Maori party” hat once again. Or perhaps he’s just saying things that appeal to me; I’m certainly underwhelmed by a bunch of self-professed arse-kickers looking to clean up Dodge. Sounds like a magnet for thugs who want a uniform.

If you really want to clean up your neighbourhood and wear a nice outfit, the police are looking for 1,000 new officers. Of course, they may insist on following some rules, pesky discipline, and so on.
