"at quite a dangerous junction"

So says young Don that the savages might have heard if they had cared to listen rather than drowning him out with their cries of 'racism'.

An excellent speech, well measured like all of  Brash's speeches.  Nothing that could be deemed worthy of the catcalls.

Give it 50 years or so, if only the savages would listen rather than screaming epithets,  like that of Enoch's 'Rivers of Blood',  this and his Orewa speeches will be proved correct.

On the other hand, many non-Maori New Zealanders have become increasingly impatient with the never-ending Treaty settlement process, and more particularly impatient with the constitutional preferences which have increasingly been written into law.

A great many New Zealanders reject any notion that the Treaty of Waitangi created a “partnership” between Maori and the Crown

A dangerous juncture indeed, the full speech is here.

On Friday I heard an interesting theory that the main woman protester was the wife of the joker that invited Don Brash to speak on the Marae.

Sounds like a fit up to me.
