    Whitewashing asshats! It served basically the same purpose as a tie and or bowtie! And a full 1/5th of your country was disrespected in this case to top it off...

    Look at the hipocracy, they show the world that they love diversity . However they deny the original people of the land their cultural rights. What a shame

    It's ridiculous how the invaders dictate rules of dress code to the natives. Its shameful he is talking about rules of the parliament to a native, whose lands were snatched, cultures ripped and families destroyed. The least he can do now is let the Maori member wear his traditional chain and be tolerant in repentance of his ancestors savagery.

    And the westernised morons in India, China etc were praising New Zealand coz the liberal western media told them to do so😂... This is reality of the so called "progressives" everywhere. Say one thing act another and then pretend to be sorry like Justin Trudeau after being caught in blackface. But hey the small elite "Coloured" people always sucked up to the whites

    Surprised that a progressive country like New Zealand would do something this regressive.

    Shame on this Parliament. It's not important if he wears a tie or not. Respect his identity, the culture.

    No country can match India's diversity.... Such incidents are very rare or non existent in India

    A bit bizzare! Coming from a nation whose leader is the poster girl for liberal views... Typical vote politics or blatant hypocrisy

    The judge is mocking him. As a deaf person, I can see the judge's smirks.
