Henare told off for Twitter picture
Thu, 20 Sep 2012 2:39p.m.
National MP Tau Henare has come under fire for his choice of profile picture on Twitter.
A Te Puni Kokiri official has told Henare he must change the picture he currently has on display - the Maori Battalion logo.
But Henare says the picture will stay.
“Would they tell somebody to not get a tattoo of the 28th battalion if they revered them so much?” he says.
“I think it’s stupid.”
Asked when he plans on getting a tattoo, Henare, who tweets under pseudonym ‘West Side Tory’, said: “Next week, when my boy comes home or I’ll get my nephew to do it,” he said.

Sack him. Your boss tells you to remove it and you deliberately defy him. You dont belong in politics.
