That's what Hone Harawira called for yesterday in his speech addressing the KiwiSaver Bill;
"Mr Speaker, one of the key concerns we have with this Bill, is that quite simply, it discriminates against Maori.
The facts are that Maori just do not live past 65. What that means is that while Maori, like everyone else, will be encouraged to join the Kiwisaver scheme, less than 4% of Maori will actually live long enough to derive any benefits.
That Mr Speaker, is simple discrimination.....Give those with a lower life expectancy the entitlement at an earlier age."
The problems with this are glaringly obvious. Adjusting for varying life expectancy would mean allowing males to qualify earlier. Is that also Maori Party policy? Probably not. This isn't the sexist party. It's the racist party.
