Selling of assets is a short term fix to a long term problem. As any accountant will tell you the money generated will only fix immediate problems. About time everyone in this country acknowledges the maori as the rightful custodians of this country instead of bleeding them dry and taking advantage of them and slagging them off. I am pre maori my heritage dates over 16000 years in Aotearoa I am not Moriori but tahawai. Allrights are reserved by the original inhabitants of this land as stated under the treaty of waitangi and kaupap of maori. My ancestors didnt die and bleed for this land, to end up to be dictated to by some foreign entity. Lets take it to the high court and get a permanent solution to all maori greviences and reinstate the treaty of waitangi in all its glory and constitutional law that every person in Aotearoa can live by even immigrants. Maori kaupapa as a law can incorporate all, its what being a whanau is all about.

Key is doing the best job - but all those loony 'minorities' like like the Greenies and 'anti-everything' brigade hold NZ back. Shearer is proving to be truly pathetic and he shows no drive or intelligence - all the left ever do is moan and they have no alternatives whatsoever to get the economy going.

If it's a choice between Maori owning the water or John Key owning it (or selling it to his mates), Maori have my vote every time. At least they care for it and have a connection to it whereas John Key just looks at it in terms of $$$. The obsession with money is what is ruining this country and stripping it of everything that made it a great place to live and bring up a family.
