And the craziness continues

Not only are the local iwi at Matata crazy they are also racist bigots.

They have opposed the construction of a dam that would protect the town from further flooding and landslides on the basis that the proposed site is sacred ground.

But wait there is more…..

They also have said tough shit to the residents of Matata….why you ask? Because they are not Rangitihi!!!!!

A leader of Te Rangatiratanga O Ngati Rangitihi, says the iwi has no sympathy for owners of properties destroyed in the May 18 disaster, even though they cannot rebuild without the dam.

"They’re not Rangitihi," secretary David Potter told the Herald. "They’re disgraceful as far as we’re concerned."

Well knock me down with a feather….if anyone else [Not Maori] uttered such racist bullshit the Race Relations Con-silly-ator would be down on them like a ton of bricks.
