We elected this government, they have been more up front than any previous but still the grizzles continue. It is no wonder so many people are leaving NZ.when every day we have the Treaty rammed down our throats and the minority Maori keep putting their hand out for more. If I was 30 years younger I would be gone too. Let's have a NZ for everyone.

I'm in favor of any grouping of nz citizens who oppose state driven policies that arrogantly violates the rights of others. Is it because the grouping happens to be predominately of one ethnicity, Maori yet mixed ethnicities like share holders in any given corporation are exempt from the same indecent criticism should they find themselves in an unrelated though similar predicament? Or is it a case of servicing the needs of the majority and to hell with the rights of the few? Many will answer yes to both questions and I agree.
The answer to this ongoing saga is staring us in the eyes and that is, that we as reluctant nzers of mixed ethnicity need to collectively accept Maaori as a nation unto themselves whilst statehood among some groupings albeit Iwi or Hapuu appears inevitable.
As recent as WWII the Maori nation was acknowledged as an allie to the global force network and equally acknowledged by its enemy forces. Nothing formally has altered this recognition since while many nzers as it seems continue to live in a world of bigotry fantasy ... and why? ... for what reason?
Maaori rights deserve a fair hearing in the same way non-maori too are entitled to the same legal process irrespective of dispropotionate share capacity; rights belong to all nzers. To prove a violation has been/is being committed is a tall order, the bar is set very high so for the rhetoric the majority are hard done by again begs the question, what makes you possess these insecurities? Harden up and lets get on with getting on, it's as simple as that!

everyone should be more up in arms about the fact the democratically elected government in our country is being held to ransom and tax-payer money wasted on some Maori ego's and greed. Because this isnt being contested to benefit NZers nor is it being done to benefit most Maori It is being done to make the greedy few richer under the name of the Waitangi Treaty which is having its value and truths undermined by the greedy few tribes who apparantly dont want electricity for NZ Now thats the real reason people are leaving this country because it will never be united as one
