$3 mil down the drain

With exceptional timing, the Waikato Times finally publishes an article of some substance:

Secret report reveals $3m
Tainui lawyer bill

by Karla Akuhata

Tainui’s executive committee spent more than $3 million on lawyers during the last three years, according to a confidential auditors’ report.

The tribe’s parliament will meet tomorrow to elect a new executive committee, and the report put together by financial experts KPMG is likely to be on the minds of those voting. More

Feb 8, 2012: Today is a Great Day for the Tribe!

The high court at Hamilton saw the following events unfold:

  • Cheers Tainui!

    The judge saw through Charles Joe’s lies and deceptions in regards to Joe issuing intentionally defective meeting notices.
  • Charles Joe’s reputation is torn to shreds as his ruse is revealed in public to a packed courtroom.
  • Commonsense prevails as the judge to cut right through the Chapman Tripp BS.
  • It’s a huge defeat for Chapman Tripp as NZs largest law firm takes a battering in Hamilton.
  • Jack Hodder, Chapman Tripp’s no. 1 lawyer saw the writing on the wall and left early, leaving his junior flunkie to take the heat in the afternoon session of the court.
  • Tuku Morgan sweats hard knowing that he is personally liable after todays visit to the high court.
  • Could it be that the lure of easy Tainui money no longer exists, and Chapman Tripp disappear back to their Auckland highrise apartments.
  • Tania Martin awarded costs in light of Te Arataura’s vendetta against her.
  • The people can get along with business without inteference as the new 2011 rules prevail.
  • Democracy is the winner and its a great day for the ordinary people of Tainui!

It’s Charles Joe who is the ‘Defective’ one

Charles Joe the Te Arataura secretary, is the person who is responsible for issuing notices for the Te Kauhanganui meetings. Usually, the notice is required at least 14 days before the meeting is scheduled to take place.

Charles is a devious little monkey as he has been deliberately sending out DEFECTIVE notices then they send in the Chapman Tripp scum to the high court to contest the notice and have the meetings cancelled.

Last year dirty Charles got caught sending out a defective notice that was inside the the minimum 14 day deadline (it was deliberately too late) and he fraudulently attached Tania Martins signature to the notice to pin the blame on her. A pattern of offending has emerged.

It has become apparent that the lockout last Saturday was planned regardless of the outcome of the case at the high court which Chapmann Tripp lost and the people of Tainui won.

It’s almost unbelievable but its definitely all true.

What a Clown: Jack Hodder

The chief liar over at the Chapmann Tripp firm said at court that Te Arataura needs to cancel the Te Kauhanganui meetings to maintain the status quo. And to preserve harmony. And to create a level playing field? Because of the hostilities inflicted upon Te Arataura by the chair of the tribal parliament!

Oh boo.

The status quo means that millions of tribal dollars remain unaccounted for, thats what.

This is the kind of crap that has taken millions of dollars away from iwi resources and placed it in the hands of thieving scum like Jack Hodder and Chapmann Trip.

Remember that the Chapman Tripp scum are the ones who told the Maori king to get the Te Kauhanganui meetings cancelled so that he can begin to take over the tribal assets.

Maintaining the status quo means maintaining the rip offs.

The Profile they tried to BAN!

Patsy Mclean doesn’t want you to see this. Tuku Morgan doesn’t want you to see this and the Chapmann Tripp flunkies are trying to block the publication of it.

It must be something very threatening and extremely dangerous.

Here it is…

Regime Change: Its Time to Clean out the Lunatics!

What the? There must be a full moon or something as madness reigns at Tainui:

  • Tuku Morgan and Chapmann Trip attempting to have meetings cancelled despite court orders to proceed,
  • Tribal CEO Patsy Mclean locking out the owners from their own facilities,
  • The Maori king attempting to have marae boycott Te Kauhanganui meetings in his effort to overthrow the tribal parliament.

The Farce Continues…

Oh My God!

In the anticipation of the cancellation of yesterday’s Te Kauhanganui meeting by Chapmann Tripp, management CEO Parekawhia Patsy Mclean refused to order the usual tea, coffee, and meals for the tribal parliament meeting. When tribal members heard of this act of utter contempt towards the people, a group of old people (70 even 80 year olds) banded together and worked until the early hours of the morning to make sure refreshments were provided.

So much for the wealth of the $600 million dollar iwi which provides for the people eh? Where did it all go? Only a few days earlier tens of thousands were wasted on a futile visit to the Hamilton high court… madness.

Update: The grapevine is working extremely well for us today as Piko comments that the madness went even further as Patsy Mclean attempts to lockout the people from their own building!

You are partly right eraka. I happen to know that the chief executive manager locked up the whole house and the chairwoman had to bring in the police and the pakeha locksmiths to open up the Kauhanganui chambers. The kaumatua did all the morning tea and the Horanganui Marae in Melville made hangi for lunch and the meeting empowered the members. What was neat too was that the kuia did the karanga for lunch. Thats manaaki. Boy the chief manager is in big trouble and he might lose his job.

Cheers Piko!

Its business as usual…

Yesterday at the Hamilton’s high court Tuku Morgan and Chapmann Tripp attempted to get the judge to abandon today’s scheduled Te Kauhanganui meeting.

The good news is that they were left high and dry in another attempt to overthrow the authority of Te Kauhanganui and today’s meeting goes ahead as scheduled.

The end result is that Morgan has wasted at least $70,000 of tribal funds for one trip to the high court, and NZ’s largest law firm is left with egg on their faces as they lose in another appearance against the amateur Tania Martin.

Who would’ve thought that Chapmann Trip could lose in court so many times yet still be paid over a million dollars, maybe two million over the last 2 1/2 years?

A review of 2011

It only takes a few sentences to summarize 2011.

Last year Te Arataura achieved nothing and…

Tuku Morgan spent millions (of your money!) in his push for power, and to avoid all notions of transparency and accountability, while achieving absolutely nothing!

We had hoped that there would be a fresh start to 2012 with the tribal elections, but we’ve been informed that the Chapmann Tripp lawyers have been tutoring the Maori king on the role that he has to play in the attempted overthrow of our tribal parliament.

By the way, we had our 50,000th visitor to the blog yesterday and we can’t wait to get 50,000 more. Hooah!

Desperate moves to kill off Te Kauhanganui: Maori king + Morgan + Chappman Tripp

Since it was revealed that the Chappman Tripp lawyers are providing legal advice to the maori king as well as Tuku Morgan and Te Arataura, it must be assumed that they are working hand in hand to try and have the entire Tainui parliament sacked.

Behind the scenes Chappman Tripp are working furiously to have the next Te Kauhanganui meetings set for February 4, and the special meeting on Feb. 12 cancelled.

Tuku Morgan is trying desperately to stop the new Te Arataura committee from being elected.
