“But he didn’t. He thought he could just ignore them and do another back door deal with a few iwi leaders but even that’s coming unstuck”.
“I’ve not heard one iwi leader say they agree with John Key’s plan to sell state assets”.
“I can understand his divide and rule tactics” said Harawira “but most Maori actually back the New Zealand Maori Council position – including his mates in the Maori Party … I think”.
“John Key thinks he can get away with insulting and ignoring Maori” said Harawira “but he’s in trouble when his Pakeha voters’ start realising that the NZ Maori Council just may be their best chance of stopping the asset sales”.
