More bad news for Labour

The Waitangi Tribunal has found that the government has breached the Treaty of Waitangi in its dealing with Te Wananga o Aotearoa.

Of course the Tribunal is renowned for dopey lop-sided judgements, and this has all the hallmarks of being another one.

In its report released today the tribunal says the Crown broke its treaty obligations in several areas.

It had failed to complete the partnership agreement and its attempts to restrict the range of courses taught at the wananga was based on "an unduly limited conception" of the wananga’s nature that went against statutory definitions in the Education Act.
