Do you seriously want to bundle NZ into a group of name changers like Burma, Ceylon, Southern Rhodesia and a bunch of African tinpot failed states??????? Name change is the first step down the ladder to chaos. In Ceylon the long and bloody civil war started because that fool Bandaranaike insisted on putting the Sinhalese letter Sri on car number-plates in Tamil areas. We know that Jabcinda is going out of her way to foment trouble between part-maoris and non-maoris. Do not help her.

That's Kia Kaha though. Unless the cartoonist was unaware of that.

It is happening because we are letting it happen, and secondly most maoris are not grave diggers, they are fully aware of what the outcome could be.

Dead right, the question is how can this be transmitted to the general public when the msm has been payed off?

The cliché: ‘deafening silence’ is very much the situation where the Mahuta family and its nepotistic chicanery are concerned; that silence coming from mainstream media unable to break the chains of thraldom to Maori and silent in the face of a blatant power grab for fear of being called ‘racist’. This is the catchall, reflective response when any lack of semblance of democracy and fairness is questioned in this country; a New Zealand that is being pushed inexorably towards apartheid and positive discrimination, with their attendant lack of equality, fairness and morality. The media are afraid to admit it, preferring to apologise or publicise the illusory wonders of Maoridom, but when the values and virtues of colonisation are raised, silence…

Totally agree...but how can we get the message out to the 'silent majority'?
