Ryman in the news again…

Mad Mike Pohio and TGH must be thoroughly sick of us harping on about Pohio’s premature sell-off of the 22.5 million Ryman shares that resulted in the tribe missing out on a huge fortune. The ineptitude of TGH –the loss which is measurable in hundreds of thousands $$ per week– goes on and on as Ryman announces record profits and future growth expansion.

The $10 million dollar question…

A great piece of detective work by Chris over at Waikato Politix uncovering Mike Pohio and Nathan Yorke’s massive $10,000,000 Taupo investment flop. They would have preferred that the scandal remain hidden from us…. but the truth always gets out aye boys!

Those blindfolded chimpanzees at Tainui Group Holdings were desperate for the tribe’s $70 million relativity clause payment to cover their gambling investment losses!

If Tainui Group Holdings can’t even get a $10 mil resort for rich folks (not for you) up and running —why on earth should we trust them to gamble the entire tribal assets (you know that belong to us) on a glorified $3 billion dollar truck stop??


They’re getting excited…

By this we mean that the pakeha land owners affected by Mad Mike Pohio’s imaginary truck-stop are getting excited. Every time the magical $3 billion dollars gets mentioned, they become very excited.

They want to know how much is in it for them. What can they get out of it?

They will oppose the project to the very end. Because they are waiting for a phone call —from Mad Mike. They have signatures that are very, very valuable. They are waiting for Mad Mike to buy them out in return for their co-operation.

Its gonna cost millions. Thats millions of your money, Tainui people.

You guys have missed out for years and years, and now the pakeha land owners have jumped the queue —for more money than you could ever imagine. One day their opposition to the truck-stop will cease. Thats when we’ll know that they hit the jackpot —and the people of Tainui paid for it.

Thats the reality.

They’re promising 12,000 jobs

The corporate lies coming from Mad Mike Pohio & co continue…

Picture of a moron. Mad Mike Pohio.

Picture of a moron. Mad Mike Pohio.

The sh!t that Rahui Papa says (our comments in the bracket thingys):

“Everything we do has to be for the people.” (F*cking rubbish!)

“Glory of independence.” (Another f*cking joke.)

Rahui, have you paid back the money, you know $10,000 dollars that you took from the tribe?

Oh wait a minute, isn’t this all to do with the imaginary $3 billion dollar truck-stop? But the people over at Tainui Group Holdings don’t have $3,000,000,000 sitting in their cheque account. Has the government decided to fork out the $3 billion instead?

Oh wait another minute, the banks sure as hell won’t give TGH the leverage that they want unless all the tribal assets are put up as security. I bet Rahui Papa and Mad Mike Pohio ‘forgot’ to put that in their press release. Everything could be lost. How badly do you want these goons to risk everything?

Mad Mike Pohio wants us to “trust” him.

We’re already in the hole for $300 million because of Mad Mike Pohio. Remember Mad Mike lost the tribe at least another $120 million because of the premature sell-off of millions of Ryman shares for $2.60 each. They are now worth about $8.40. We continue to be stupefied over Mad Mike’s moronic decision.

Hang on, 12,000 jobs won’t appear tomorrow as if the magic job-fairy sprinkled a load of magical job-dust all over Tainui! Another detail got left out of Pohio’s press release, any job promises are projected far into the future at least 30 years, but more likely 40 or 50 years.

They are making it up as they go along.

What a big joke – all their wonderful promises are only supposed to eventuate long after the liars have disappeared from this plane of existence. How convenient!

Those goons release more rubbish and we are supposed to swallow it. Yeah right! More

Tainui invests in bloody murder!

Tainui along with Ngai Tahu are in partnership with Pioneer Captial – in this manner they have taken out part ownership of Rakon, a company which specializes in high-tech. Rakon supplies the US military with the technology that is used to murder thousands of citizens in far away countries.

How about that for an unethical investment strategy of the most brutal kind. Every time you hear of families blown to pieces with Rakon equipment, know that we had a part to play in it.

Killing in our name – tick that box Mike Pohio!

Tainui Group Holdings investment strategy!

Waikato Education Scholarships & Mad Mike Pohio

Trickle-down in action – crumbs for the masses:

Waikato Tainui education grants for 2014

Waikato Tainui education grants for 2014

Hundreds of students will receive an education grant. Last year the total for education grants came to $900,000. In addition, one individual will receive between $1 and $2 million. Tribal members numbering tens of thousands will receive nothing. The elderly who apply for a grant will be subject to strict conditions before they receive assistance. The ‘one individual’ is not constrained by such conditions and is free to drink booze at luxury casinos with millions of dollars worth of tribal donations to his shonky Ururangi Trust.

In the meantime Mike Pohio of Tainui Group Holdings has been talking big about his multi-billion dollar inland container depot. What a load of rubbish. It just doesn’t add up. People talk about taking billion dollar risks while the vast majority of tribal members have not received a single dollar from the tribe!

Mad Mike Pohio knows all about dodgy investments. Flashback to 2011 and Tainui Group Holdings owes loads of cash to the banks and are about to crash. Mike went and sold off Tainui’s stake in the Ryman company for $58 million. They called it a windfall at the time. We called it madness as the market was in a massive slump. We called it right because the market has hit highs since the selloff – those shares would be valued at $176.6 million today!

Mad Mike Pohio and Tainui Group Holdings sell Ryman shares and loose $118 million

Although to be fair to Mad Mike you will not be surprised to learn of Tuku Morgan, Maxine Moana, & Shcaffhausen’s involvement in the crazy decision which led to the tribe missing out on $118,625,000.

Happy Holidays!

…the cornerstone of our long-term strategy Whakatupuranga 2050

There is lots of wonderful stuff going on – if you believe the spin spewing out of serial-liar Parekawhia Patsy Mclean’s office that is.

Here’s what an extract from the ACTUAL Whakatupuranga 2050 document that reads about the stuff that they wanted completed by 2012:

To establish Hopuhopu as the administrative, social, recreational and tribal knowledge ‘hub’ of Tainui, by building:
§ A tribal administration building;
§ A tribal knowledge centre;
§ A sports & recreation centre;
§ An events and conference centre;
§ A retirement village for kaumaatua;
§ A super clinic / mini hospital.

What a pleasant dream! That’s marvellous but what ACTUALLY happened was tribal CEO Patsy Mclean dumped Hopuhopu (it is significant as the first confiscation property returned back to the tribe). As Hopuhopu was abandoned for big city Hamilton in preparation for the eventual merger and takeover by Clown Derheyden and Mad Mike Pohio at Tainui Group Holdings.

They have certainly ignored their “cornerstone strategy” and no doubt there will be plenty more to follow by the hypocrite Parekawhia Mclean.
