No surprises there

NZ Herald

No surprises that the vested interests and greedy iwi of the Waitangi Tribunal have called for a halt to asset sales so they can better evaluation how much koha the taniwha is going to need to be appeased:

The Waitangi Tribunal has urged Government to delay its planned sell off of state assets until a claim over Maori water rights has been resolved.

In a recommendation returned this afternoon, the tribunal said a planned partial sale of state assets should be halted until it delivers its full findings on a water rights claim in September.

It said selling shares in state assets before the Tribunal delivered its full findings could “cause a significant disadvantage to [Maori] claimants” if their claims were subsequently found to be well-founded.

As a result, it said the status quo should be maintained and the Crown should not proceed with asset sales until the Tribunal had completed its report into the issue, expected in September.

Ignore them.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.
