There was some good reporting from 95bFM last week, audio of a Key media session. Here’s a transcript:
Key: There’s been more consultation on TPP than probably anything else you can name.
And, actually, we listened very very carefully to Māori. We said, ‘Absolutely, we hear you about the treaty.’ And we absolutely had a carve-out clause for that.
Audrey Young: Are you saying this consultation took place during the negotiations, not after?
Key: Think after, [blah blah blah]
Minder: Sorry we really have to go.
John-Michael: Can it be called consultation if it’s after the fact that the deal has already been made?
Key: Yeah, course it can.
Could he be more condescending?
This is Key’s style when “consulting” with Māori of course, as per the shameful Supercity process. And people wonder why he gets such a rough reception at Waitangi.
