Shane Jones unrepentant over Indian student comments

From Morning Report, 7:37 am on 3 March 2020

Shane Jones is thumbing his nose at the Prime Minister, refusing to resile from his comments about Indian students ruining academic institutions in New Zealand.

The New Zealand First MP and Cabinet minister received a very public and very blunt message from Jacinda Ardern that his comments were "loose and wrong".

Jones is unrepentant, saying he was only expressing the views of some in the local Indian community.
