Louisa Wall talks Labour youth camp, rugby and her Manurewa pride

Labour Party MP Louisa Wall sat down with Mike Wesley-Smith for our most recent Facebook Live 'Ask Me Anything' segment, answering from people around the country. 

When asked why no-one from Labour was resigning over the sexual misconduct at the Young Labour summer camp, Ms Wall said the question was "fair enough but not for me to answer".

"We've come forward and said our policies were not fit for practice, they didn't provide a safe environment for young people.

"It's terrible for us, we let ourselves down."

When asked if she would be running as a List MP in 2020 so Shane Jones could win her Manurewa seat for NZ First, she said that she wanted to "swat that rumour to the side."

"I'm in my third term as MP for Manurewa and I'm incredibly privileged and proud."

Ms Wall said she wanted to remain an electorate MP and wouldn’t run on the list, because for her politics is all about "representing the needs and aspirations of the constituents".

Ms Wall said that New Zealand had a long way to go to catch up to Australia and Europe when it came to coverage of women's sport, but she acknowledged significant financial investment would be needed.

She even treated the newsroom to a song, singing Moana and the Moa Hunters’ "Warriors", which she said was the song she listened to when she was getting ready for her Black Ferns matches.
