A new negotiator for Tainui

And no, it’s not Tom Roa. It’s rumored that the Maori king personally told Prime Minister John Key to negotiate with him directly about the big issue of the day: water rights.

Kudos goes out to Tuku Morgan for delivering the Maori king to John Key, he really is earning those big bucks that Key has been paying him lately.

    Can Waikato become the strongest link in the fight against asset sales? We all oppose asset sales, so our chiefs should side with us and do everything they can to fight the sales. We have two weeks or so before the national ‘iwi leaders ‘ hui at Turangawaewae. Between now and then, can the hapu and iwi of Tainui and Waikato mobilise to lead the opposition to asset sales? Waikato has been very quiet on this…including Nanaia….in two weeks can Waikato be the lead iwi that is fighting asset sales? When is the next poukai to table this?

    Tuku negotiating for the govt. He rips off his own iwi than helps the govt to rip off other iwi. Gotta hand it to him. At least he has skills in negotiation. Give credit where credit is due. Tuku is more skilled than Tom Roa at the negotiation game. Tom only knows how to get out of the kitchen when he can’t stand the heat. Leaves a woman to clean up then comes back. What a coward. Hell I prefer Tuku.

      It’s typical, really, that you didn’t back your comments up with reason. I don’t have a problem with your ignorance or lack of support for all of our Raupatu hapu – that’s your choice. In all seriousness these issues are something you either get or you don’t.

      It seems abuser’s don’t have trouble justifying, and in your case articulating, abusive champions.

    Wake up; your not being told the truth about those famous words from Greg Miller ” we will get control” ask how? because it is already happening to you and your not being told the full picture. Signing your hapu to anything right now is signing away all self determination of the people and handing over total control to Paki. It is why he is behaving the way he is. Ask for full disclosure your entitled to know what is actually going on.

    Te Kauhanganui must honor the delivery of promises and agreements made nearly 12 years ago to all of our Raupatu hapu as the 1st agenda item on Sept 8th 2012.

    Priority 1:
    The bank is closed. The financial hand out to ALL TRUSTS including the Kings Trust and TAA must stop until the Raupatu debt is fully met; not parked up or partially met but fully repaid.

    Priority 2:
    Time for a change. The September 8th 2012 Te Kauhanganui agenda needs to focus more on strengthening Kiingi Taawhiao’s struggling financial house rather than chase after the distractions of the petty infighting by our [dysfunctional] managers who’ve played centre stage for the past 8 years.

    Priority 3:
    Stop wasting money. To date, millions of dollars in Raupatu revenue has been poured into making lawyers and the king wealthy rather than being put to use lifting Waikato Tainui’s poverty line and employment levels across our entire social arena.

    Priority 4:
    Clean up your abuse of indigenous rights King Tuheitia stop swearing at the people and apologise. Your diminished reputation simply means you won’t be taken seriously when engaging the Crown on any future water rights ownership claim or share deal offers.

    I think the Kingitanga has past its used by date. They have already got their settlement so why does it need to exist anymore?
    Under the Treaty, Hapu are the partners. Hapu have manawhenua and rangitiratanga

    The upper Waikato and eastern side of Taupo are the domain of Ngati Maniapoto, Tuwharetoa, and Ngati Raukawa. Not all tribes or hapu consider the King to have a mandate for them or have a legal hereditary interest.

    Would you consider this attempt by King and Key as insider trading?

    The chair of TAA courting media opportunities is like sitting on a well-worn upholstered couch [NZ Herald 4/09/2012] really is a bit pathetic when we have a moral obligation to make sure the internal Raupatu debt is addressed ahead of the national debate on water rights.

    Waikato Tainui whanau, everyone can help by insisting their TKI representatives prioritise the 8th Sept agenda. The future of Kiingi Taawhiao’s dream demands that we the people support TGH with realistic business strategies to stimulate business growth, other than hear about the humiliating spend up of Raupatu revenue.

    TGH wasnt around when King Tawhio was dream. The fact is that the Waikato Tainui Settlements only beneficiaries are only the descendants of Te Wherowhero
