Bye Bye Leech

Nick Wells, what a nasty leech you are

Chapmann Tripp gets the Boot: We have just heard that Te Kauhanganui have served it up to those Chapman Tripp leeches and told the chief leech Nick Wells to take a hike.

Now the Te Arataura snakes will have to fork out of their own pockets instead of stealing from the tribal funds to continue their wasteful practices, and lets see how eager they are to call in the mega-buck QC’s this time round.

Te Arataura should be able to afford it should’t they? They did give themselves a pay increase which they didn’t inform Te Kauhanganui about didn’t they? This is the same increase that should have been given to the Te Kauhanganui reps shouldn’t it? Isn’t that what the consultants told dopey Maxine Moana anyway? (Married-to-fraudster-Maxine Moana and Slackass-Bludger Tukiri should know all about that!)

Smear Job: Tania Martin

Here’s the report of the police investigation that ROBIN WHANGA initiated, with the full assistance of TUKU MORGAN, TE ARATAURA, and CHAPMANN TRIP -paid for in full by the people of the Waikato Iwi.

The whole aim of this outrageous exercise was to lay BASELESS allegations which were not supported by any facts, against Tania Martin because she dared question the excessive spending done by Tuku and his Te Arataura mob.

Yet another example of what is wrong at ‘Tainui’ when a few criminals abuse the resources of the entire tribe in an effort to destroy one person.

Re Complaint into Financial Mismanagement at Hiona Marae

Dear Sir

On 6 May 2011 you met with Detective Inspector PACE and discussed with him a complaint that you had in respect of alleged financial mismanagement by those involved with the affairs of the Hiona Marae. However, it is clear that the subject of this complaint is at Ms Tania Martin who I understand was the former chair of Te Kauhanganui (Waikato Tainui Parliament) and who has been somewhat outspoken in relation to some matters within the Kingitanga and in particular she has been critical of spending within Te Arataura the parliament’s executive board.

Ms Martin is the representative of the Hiona Marae.

In addition after that meeting you subsequently provided a box of documents to the Police which were relevant to this complaint. More

And Here We Go Again…

Te Kauhanganui are looking take the power back at their next meeting on August 28 when they gather to change the rules.

Well whaddya know, what do you think will happen?

Yeah, that’s right, Tuku’s stooges on the Te Arataura committee will do everything that they can possibly think of to have the meeting aborted with their dirty tricks just like they did in May and June.

They’ve done it before and They will try it again. We’ve come to expect no less.

Hey Tainui people!

The story of deceit continues!

Do you ever wonder why Tuku Morgan and Te Arataura won’t listen to you lot?

Cos Chapman Trip are running the show that’s why!

It appears that Chapman Trip creates companies in YOUR name WITHOUT telling you and appoints Chapman Trip people as a director on that company that you were NEVER told about!

What do you think about that?

Te Kauhanganui are the 100% ‘owner’ but didn’t know anything. NOTHING.

Nick Wells. WTF! Waikato Tainui Koiora Ltd. Tuku Morgan. OMG!

Kingdom Come: The Great Debate

Some interesting conversations are being had from last Saturday’s Kingdom Come article published by the Waikato Times…

Tainui constituent #1 03:43 pm Jul 04 2011

Tuku says Bunny Tumai had no right to say anything to the media. Yes Tuku; this will allow you to ‘cover’ all your crap doings in the past 18 months or so. Makes you also wonder what people – namely, the bulk of Tainui tribe – do when they are not being listened to. Also that Bunny Tumai is not a kaumatua of consequence; come to Horahora Tuku; our Kingi re-union was run by Bunny Tumai as shown on TV. How dare you slander our kaumatua with your politicised PROPOGANDA! My kaumatua has put his mana, tribal standing, and reputation on the line for OUR TRIBE to go forward Tuku; you know it, as your tactic is to further entrench our kaumatuas voices in your Tribal Ostracision. I believe you are a coward and are running our tribe into ruin for your personal gain Tuku. Get out Tuku, get out.

i watched the debate between Tania Martin and Tuku Morgan. Honestly my initial response to both of them …. Tania Martin … Talked incessantly in a monotone voice ….she gave dates, times, More

Mrs. McLean

Clint Eastwood Rickards

Don't give this bad-boy another reason to pull out his "Baton"

Information has come to light that Parekawhia Patsy McLean was handpicked by Tuku for the Tainui CEO job well over a year ago and that Te Kauhanganui chairwoman Tania Martin had questioned Tuku about how this had come about. If this info is true then the CEO selection was just another farce orchestrated by Tuku, and that Clint Rickard was nothing but a fall guy who was put up because he was guaranteed to fail against McLean in the farcical “selection” process.

Can anybody verify this information for us? If it’s true, it’s no wonder Tuku Morgan is so desperate to have Tania Martin fired!

Thanks to Waikato’s Times: Clint Rickards misses out on Tainui’s top job.

Cheer’s NZ Herald: ‘No place for personality issues’ in Tainui job? Lol!

McLean’s bio is quite impressive, before it got ruined at Tainui.

Patience where are you?

The usually boisterous and ‘larger than life’ Patience Te Ao seems conspicuous by her silence.

Perhaps the Tuku Morgan sycophant is keeping her head down in case the mud flying around at Tainui sticks to her and ruins her chances for the easy big money opportunities with the Auckland Super City

The Memory Remains #1

A comment was posted on one of our blog posts reminding us of the time Rahui Papa ended up in Tuku’s pocket for a lousy ten grand.

There was the unfortunate matter of a house fire at the Papa residence a couple of years ago. Aparrantley the children were in the house at the time and luckily the darlings were unharmed, so we were told. The fire left the Papa’s homeless and nearly destitute, and Tuku took it upon himself at the next Arataura meeting to give Mr Papa a non-refundable gift of $10,000 Tainui money to help him in his time of need. The problem was that Te Arataura aren’t allowed to go doleing out thousands of dollars to whoever they like and Tuku was in the sh!t.

Anyway to make a long story short they need to get Tuku out of the cra p so they simply changed the rules and came up with the “Rahui Papa Hardship Grant”, which they duly made retrospective and were able to cover their sorry a$ses, and further protect Tainui’s charitable purposes tax-free status from being in jeopardy!

The kindly folk of Tainui also took to making bank donations to help out Mr Papa, but they were not too kindly when they saw him gambling away their donations at the Hamilton Casino on a regular basis.

The Papa’s were taken in by whanau soon after the fire, however, family members found out that with this particular branch of the Papa family the little darlings turned into little devils and started wrecking their new accommodations and became rather unpopular house guests!

And Mr Papa remains in Tuku’s pocket to this very day.

Nanaia tries to say something:

“The Mona Lisa”…but she ends up saying nothing as she sits on the fence in typical politico style:


Hauraki Waikato MP Nanaia Mahuta says Tainui needs to get its house in order.

The tribe’s executive fended off a bid to sack it by getting a high court injuntion postponing the half-yearly meeting of the tribal parliament, which was to be held on the weekend.

Ms Mahuta says the squabble with the executive means Te Kauhanganui is failing to take care of the tribe’s business.

“Quite frankly, sooner or later people got to put egos aside, look at the business before the tribe, huge decisions need to be made and Te Kauhanganui and the marae must give direction or have to opportunity to give direction on some really critical issues facing us,” Ms Mahuta says.
