Two things hit you immediately, the first is, there was no way England could send enough troops and keep them supplied by sailing ships in the 1800's, to defeat and control ALL the Maori tribes, they struggled to do that in the Falkland Islands in 1982, for God sake!

The satirical comments I posted again has been removed by BB&H without explanation as was Aron's posted comment. These messages/comments do help get the message across, even if they are blunt. NEW ZEALANDERS need to be shaken out of their morbid complacency

Raleigh I suspect your mocking (satirical) comments would have found an appreciative audience.

Images from memory capture the moment off the coast of South Africa when great white sharks engaged in a feeding frenzy after someone threw a dog into the ocean. It was a show put on for the tourists.

Great to see my satirical comments [about what we can expect from the evil tribal bastard] has miraculously reappeared. BB& B must have reconsidered their censorship laws
