The Prime Minister claimed, “Agencies used every tool available to protect innocent people from this individual. Every legal avenue was tried”. But neither mental health support, Court-ordered psychological assessments, nor rehabilitation appear to have taken place.
As it stands the Three Waters proposal is irrational from every perspective, but one. The only rational reason for this deeply flawed upheaval is to use it as a smokescreen to pass ownership and control of water to Maori tribal interests. The Government has no mandate for that course of action – it is completely unacceptable.
This brief analysis exposes the extent to which the He Puapua agenda is undermining all of the four pillars of our democracy. With Maori now over-presented in Parliament, and Labour’s Maori Caucus gaining control of its Executive wing, their radical influence in Cabinet is now permeating throughout the government service, the judiciary, and even the media.
New Zealand is at a crossroads. If Kiwis don’t proactively back a colour-blind future - united by what we have in common instead of divided by our differences - then that small group of radical extremists, who already have their hands on the levers of power, will replace democracy with tribal rule.
It seems astonishing that the Ministry of Education is allowing academics who subscribe to the radical view that science has been used as a weapon of colonisation and a tool for the suppression of Maori knowledge to drive curriculum development.
As a representative democracy founded on the principle of equal rights, it is abhorrent that Labour is destroying that culture through the 50:50 co-governance requirement of the Three Waters proposal. Imposed without warning or electoral mandate, the total upheaval of water services in New Zealand - designed to deliver control to Maori - is He Puapua in action.
