We are all gambling our future and our children's future on something we do not understand and that includes maori, I would not put money on it.

I totally agree and it has gone on for too long!

The Treaty of Waitangi is manipulated to demand whatever the Maori can dream up.

Nobody owns the water, the land, the sea bed, the lakes, the Mountains, the air above the land. All that was created thousands of years ago when the Dinosaurs roamed the earth!! All NZ governments have been too damn soft over the years and now the situation is ridiculous and completely out of control.

Also, the likes of another part Maori Herewini, blocking the road to Northland, as a self imposed Policeman with his Maori mates -- judging who is allowed to drive further than their "Check Point"

Should have been closed down long ago.

You question “Just imagine if any "White people" had done this?? “ If you label Herewini as “part MaorI”, then obviously he must also be “part non-Māori”, so why do you focus on the aspect of his race rather than the fact that you disagree with checkpoints?


You conclude with “Why are these people allowed to continually break the law?”. I wonder if “these people” refers to vigilantes?

I LOVE the cartoon ------ right on the button!!

Everything is pointing to Apartheid in REVERSE!!

I had quite a pointed discussion with a close Part Maori friend - His mother was almost full Maori and his Father was Scottish.

He said "the Maoris think the ruling should be Maori one side and "all the rest of New Zealanders the other" I said that is not a democracy. He said "This is because of the land that was stolen from the Maoris way back"

I said ---- They have been paid BILLIONS over the years for land supposedly taken and we are now all one people.

About time Maori stopped living in the past - accepted they have been paid…

Just picking up on your point that Māori have been paid BILLIONS over the years for land supposedly taken. As of August 2018 the total value of all finalised settlements was $2.24 billion. A lot of money, but to put it in perspective, the following year the government spent $14 billion on superannuation alone. The entire value of Treaty settlements over the previous quarter of a century would only cover superannuation payments for 2 months.


The Ngai Tahu iwi, in their settlement claim estimated economic losses from the Crown’s purchases were valued at more than $20 billion. They received a Crown settlement offer of $170 million and an apology.


To your concern that Māori should accept they have been paid…

It wouldn't be so bad if those that had all the say we're batting for the good of the nation rather than, often by public admission, predominantly to the advantage of their own race based team.
