Sleepwalking to apartheid

National Party ministers appear to implicitly support Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia's plan to bundle multiple contracts for Maori health, education, housing, justice and social services into integrated "Whanau Ora" contracts covering the whole spectrum of services for regional groups of Maori whanau

Another bottomless pit of affirmative action where taxpayer dollars will be poured without accountability for some future government to wring their hands over whilst trying reverse the welfare trap.
The plan is inspired by longstanding Maori ambitions for self-determination

Welcome to apartheid, New Zealand style.

Guess who will pay?

Why not hold the histrionics and contemplate the alternative?

Nine more years of Labour?

I happen to think that the proposal to 'devolve' some of these services is a useful move. Let's see what the figures tell us after five years. Look for reductions in Maori diabetes, obesity, coronary conditions, child abuse, incarceration etc etc

It's worth giving a go as so far nothing else has done much good.

Finkenstein talks rubbish, it is
unfettered pandering to a racial group. His comment '9 more years
of labour' is laughable. We already have that with National but in 'B' grade form

You know, Adolf I used to loathe and detest the Labour government and though it would be impossible to have a worse gang in power.
Well as far as a hell of a lot of people are concerned, it is worse--Labour-Lite but without the entertainment value.

Just two things are enough to demonstrate the utter cynicism and dishonesty of National: Key's contempt for the will of Kiwis when he dismissed the most emphatic referendum result in New Zealand's history and his determination to introduce massive new taxes which will fall mainly on the neck of householders already struggling with criminal power costs and crippling taxes.
I used to have some respect for your views Adolf but of late that's turned to something approaching contempt. In your mindless cheerleading for National, your blinkered ideological arse-licking of socialism, you're no better than the trade unionist and racially-driven useful idiots of the left.

You say "It's worth giving a go as so far nothing else has done much good."
Nothing else has done much good because of the basic flaws in the idea of giving handouts at taxpayer's expense to people on the basis of race. This proposed scheme enlarges that principle and you weren't so ideologically blinkered you'd be able to see the obvious.
Shame.

Adolf, I've spent years working in the health sector, and have seen so many Maori people who are "non compliant" with their chronic disease treatments.
Having returned to NZ recently, from working overseas, I was shocked to see how the numbers had increased drastically, I don't for one minute think this will change and in 5 years, the numbers will be worse. These people are costing us millions and it's time they got off their fat back sides and took responsibility for their own health.

How will this latest idea change attitudes? It's likely to cost vet more taxpayer dollars too. The problem is one of attitude, not funding models.

Adolf, you're beneath contempt. Your subservience to the National government is sickening.
