Which way are they gonna vote this time?

Back in January, the Marae committee at Turangawaewae voted overwhelmingly to SUPPORT the current T.K. chair Tania Martin and instructed their reps to do so at the crucial vote. The very next day the Maori king heard about this turn of events and ordered the Turangawaewae reps to vote AGAINST Tania Martin at the meeting.

So there is a question mark over which way they actually voted that day, isn’t there?

Recently we have heard rumors that Tuku Morgan has personally hand picked Turangawaewae rep, N. Williams, to be the boss of the new Tainui prison that Tuku is determined to have built… if this is all true which way do you think Williams vote will fall?

It’s also no coincidence that Williams has been very vocal in his support of Te Arataura lately…

    Golly gosh, if the rumours are true…. that would indeed place Turangawaewae in a compromised position, given also that Turangawaewae are still to select their kaumaatua representative. It would be a very foolish marae rep to think they can pull the wool over the people’s eyes. It appears too that the Turangawaewae reps favors the ABSTAIN vote on significant matters…what is that about??? may need to reign them in!!
