John Key will take as much as he can get away with. Mining, selling State assets, shonkey pokies, foreign ownership, cutting state services. Is this all he can do? Oh I forgot the under funded cycle ways. This will be his legacy.

This meaning the Queen is to care for the water ways everyone has rights to the water that ran across their property but they cannot stop the natural flow of the water and the Queen could not profit from NZ'ers out of the water ways. This is only what i had read in law.
