He's going to offer public shares to NZ in March or June next year?! Who the hell in NZ has any money left to buy shares in a power company. That is the stupidest comment I have read in ages! Yeah, sell all our state owned assets before you get voted out, KEY.

The Maori Council are right to go to high court to sort this. It needs to be settled once and for all even if it takes time. NZ may end up like the boat people no where to go once everything sold.

Don't work like that for the real tangata whenua, who are truly passionate about the rivers.
