  1. Mike B. says:

    I agree. Hone is just the latest casualty of the Dotcom poisoned chalice. A shame as he did speak honestly for the poor.

  2. Paul Kidd says:

    It’s refreshing to read a comment from someone who understands that you can appreciate the politics of another without going the whole way.

    It’s also important to be able to see the Gospel preached in and out of season.

    While Hone was hardly my politician of choice I agree with the article wholeheartedly. Hone had some excellent policies – for example banning loan sharks, restricting liquor and gambling places etc as well as feeding the poor, especially the children.

    I hope that Kelvin Davis will take up this mantle.

    Hear! Hear! Hone knew what he was talking about, and was a passionate voice for his people. St Ignatius would have approved.

  4. Margaret Paton says:

    Hone’s big mistake was in siding with Kimdotcom.

    He should have stuck to what he’s good at – a wise voice for keeping the cause of the disadvantaged up front, which Kimdotcom wouldn’t be renowned for.

    Big shame Hone’s not there to keep the Nats credible!
