  • I require that such references be removed from all existing legislation.
  • I require that race-based Parliamentary seats be abolished.
  • I require that race-based representation on local bodies be abolished.

Key: Treaty settlements are to buy votes

John Key’s government has signed up and mostly transferred a total amount $1.07-billion since 2008

Key unwittingly clarified his view of his historical redress haste -- treaty settlements are to buy votes

Nothing new there - we've known that the Waitangi Tribunal was setup to favour those that are more equal than other New Zealanders.

Buying the favour of chiefs is nothing new. Historians know that 19th century New Zealand governments routinely paid off chiefs to get them on side. It appears buying favour continues. 

Don't we know it.

No need to be an actual "judge" to be an activist. Take a look at this!
