E patu ana

"A 1000-strong gathering of Maoridom has voted to boycott the Government’s fast-track consultation over asset sales and agreed to a united front on Maori water rights."

Ka pai tena. Interesting to note that they haven't voted to stop the asset sales, as reported by the media, nor did they vote to claim ownership of all water, likewise claimed by the media.

The kotahitanga shown at this hui is extraordinary and exciting. The thought that seems to have entered everyone's mind is, how will Key be able to work his way around this in order to win his fight to sell the assets? Is that where he are at? Our Prime Minister, employing his trading cunning to outsmart Maori?
Interesting times. Divisive. Stimulating.
