Shades of things to come?

the roadway is private and has asked Mr Hall, as a commercial operator, to pay a fee - otherwise he is trespassing

A commercial operator is priced off crossing private land, whilst locals continue to do so for free. Nothing wrong with that, property rights reign. Except if you have the slightest whiff of being commercial (read not of the ethnic brotherhood), you will pay. The bros will find a way round free public access. Not to mention the hidden threats Joe Public will have to endure exercising that access. Of course nothing will ever be proven otherwise.

I've consulted other iwi leaders to inform them of what we intend to do and there is good support for me taking this position while the Maori Party is here

The locals out East are getting uppity again fearing the backroom deal being done with the separatists is not kosher enough. Not enough to open the way to direct ownership via wrongly perceived customary rights. Rights that were signed away 170 years ago when all New Zealanders became British subjects. I wonder if they will organise another march of 'haters and wreckers'?
people who went in the forest for kai and firewood were being served trespass notices

Rightly so. Property rights reign in the pine trees under new management. Forests I believe that should be still Crown property. Used to pillaging Crown property, the locals are now trespassing on privately held lands and are being served with trespass notices. Funny how it is not liked when the boot is on the other foot. Shades of things to come?
John Key should explain why tribal ownership of Te Urewera National Park is "evil"?

And these separatists hell bent on secession really want to know the answer to that question?
