Govt heads to Waitangi - political analysis

From Morning Report, 7:20 am on 5 February 2019

The government has turned up in the North and splashed the cash ahead of the Prime Minister's address at the Treaty grounds in Waitangi on Tuesday. Jacinda Ardern has declared this is the year in which her coalition government will deliver. When it comes to Maori they've been doing a fair bit of delivering over the past 48 hours, with Maori landowners, the Kaipara district, people living in the regions struggling to get into work and training and marae with no internet access all getting some overdue attention. But there's still some scepticism over whether enough is being done for Maori. RNZ political reporter Jo Moir joins us from Waitangi.
