The Maori Party says it will support John Key’s emissions trading scheme in exchange for a lucrative deal for the wealthiest Maori. According to TV3:
Five of New Zealand’s richest iwi, who have already signed multi-million-dollar treaty settlements, will gain millions more in the deal.
Basically, Tariana Turia and Pita Sharples don’t give a sh*t about the Maori workers who will burdened to pay part of the $155 billion subsidy for business. The Maori co-leaders are representing the interests of the elite, no wonder they’re in bed with National.
