Hone stands with the people

Mana Party MP Hone Harawira was arrested last night at a protest against state house privatisation. His crime? Blocking a driveway. The sewer will no doubt be going apeshit about this, but I think its admirable. It shows that Hone stands with the people, that he's willing to get directly involved in grassroots protest and share the same risks as everybody else in doing so. You won't see Labour (let alone National) MPs doing that; they're too "respectable" to get down and dirty with the peasants.
