John Key not ruling out asset sales

The Government has given itself a week to decide whether to sell mighty river power this year, despite the Waitangi Tribunal calling for the process to be delayed.
Last Friday, the tribunal ruled Maori have rights and interests in freshwater and has told the Government that must be resolved before any asset sales.
Prime Minister John Key is not ruling out continuing with the Government’s plan however.
“Our lawyers and officials are going to go away and pore through that Waitangi Tribunal report,” he told Firstline this morning, “We’ll - in good faith – think about all the different issues that the Waitangi Tribunal is putting up, we’ll also think about the Government’s overall objectives.”

Just another cop out from our govt. They have commissions of enquiry for everything and do not take any information on board. Obviously unable to translate the info and need a multi party approach to help them govern.

In translating John's garble, he is basically saying "we will do what we like and don't care what anyone thinks".The tribunal has told them to resolve any issues before selling but they won't, they don't actually care, that is very obvious.
