iwi wanted to self-govern the area stretching from Opotiki to Putere on the Wairoa side, and the edge of Taupo and Rotorua on the other side
iwi could sign a settlement including self-government of Te Urewera National Park and Lake Waikaremoana as early as next year
National abandons all pretense of having any principles. The party used to have principles, but now fraudulently readies itself to secede East Cape (about 20% of North Island) for native votes. Another 'full and final settlement' coming right up.
iwi had already proven it could self-govern
That would have been their up and coming police force on a weapons training camp when the real New Zealand Police arrested those terrorists a few years ago? A very necessary part of the training for self-government!
National is nothing but a vote chasing fraud.
