There ya go folks at least Tutu is straight up about it! Although he missed two words ..... under the control of TRIBAL ELITE Maori, ....
So there we have it, a 'democracy' under the control of 15% of the population?

Yogi, Thankfully there are most Maori who are diligently working with us pakeha to ensure great provinces like Nelson-Marlborough have a future together in partnership.

Forget about partnership. This Aotearoa is Maori and only Maori. The treaty of the future will ensure that. Must remind you that every time i see that cathedral im reminded about the theft of our land and the theft of my language.
Doc, if you believe that, well good luck to you! As Tutu says forget about 'partnership', as it is only a stepping stone to full Tribal Elite Maori Sovereignty.
Head in the sand do gooder sandalwearers like yourself play a big part in helping Tutu and his ilk achieve their goal.

Seriously Benny,you actually believe that that's ALL that will be said?!
Such trust is touching..

The only trolls on this site are the ones who refuse to believe that true Kiwis believe in true Democracy as proven by the people of Nelson.

It always amuses me when posters say they want equality/true democracy for all races in New Zealand. I wonder when they came to the decision, cause for the first 140 years after the treaty was signed it didnt worry them.There wasnt much equality going on as Maori slowly lost their land, language and if some people here had there way, their culture.Kia kaha Tutu
Silverfern, So right. And as I read more of this countrys shameful history and robbery of Maori Lands etc I have come to appreciate that fact.I am questioning the motives of the early leaders of the settlement of New Zealand more and more.
