I find it quite frustrating that David Rankin is always referred to as a leader, spokesman and Kaumatua of the Nga Puhi iwi.I have done my own digging into this, and I have been informed the Mr Rankin is not a leader, Kaumatua, spokesman of Nga Puhi, nor does he have ANY entitlement what-so-ever to claim that he represents iwi or hapu of Nga Puhi.

Any comments that Rankin make, it seems, are of his own opinions, and are not supported by Nga Puhi.
