Tuhoe are about to walk away from the Treaty talks. More power to them. Key has screwed them over. They’ve been waiting generations. They can afford to wait a little longer until we have a decent PM. Or they can go to the UN, see what that DRIP really means.
This is where ‘take it or leave it’ Key gets us. Dude still thinks he’s on the trading floor.
Same with leaky homes and the foreshore and seabed. Key says ‘this is my final offer, take it or leave it’. He doesn’t seem to get that his job isn’t about striking the best deal for the crown. It’s about delivering justice to people who have been wronged. Not screwing them again.
Soon, Key will be gone. Tuhoe aren’t going anywhere. They’ll win their their lands back in the end.
