Chris Finlayson- $22 Million Of Your Money For Kaipara Maori’s “Spiritual Wellbeing”

A couple of days ago, the Crown, represented by Chris Finlayson and Maori Affairs Minister Dr Pita Sharples, gave away $22 million of taxpayers money under a TOW settlement.

Will somebody tell me why NZers today, who were not alive at the time of the event this money is meant to compensate for, and who know nothing of what occurred, and have heard no story other than that of the complainant, should be having money taken from their hard earned wages and given to these tribalists? Given by a couple of oily scumbag politicians who couldn’t be trusted as far as you could kick them?

“Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara lost virtually all of their land, which had devastating consequences for their social, cultural, spiritual and physical wellbeing,” Dr Sharples said. “Those consequences are still felt today.”

What meaningless crap.

Components of the settlement include commercial and financial redress worth $22.1 million, including the transfer of Woodhill Forest. Cultural redress includes the return of Ngāti Whātua o Kaipara’s ancestral mountain, Atuanui/Mount Auckland, and eight other significant sites.

The Waitangi Tribunal is well known to be a fraudulent and partisan body and its findings are deeply suspicious. There should be an inquiry into the processes there and all settlements frozen until the public is satisfied that the procedures are above board. Many NZers have yet to be convinced that these claims of ownership have any real merit.

Not that any money should change hands anyway. If the tribes have a legitimate claim to land it should be returned to them, but this should be well proven and in a contested hearing, not just rubber stamped. However there is never ever going to be any case to make NZ taxpayers today pay money for perceived government misdeeds of the past. This is just theft, and weak pandering to a collection of racists and separatists by gutless politicians. In a sane country, rather than in this socialist racist basket case, it would never happen.

    What a steaming pile of bullshit. Following that “logic”, one may assume that tribes who displaced and ate other tribes will have to pay compensation for the land they conquered.
    But of course not–only whitey is guilty enough and rich enough to pay compensation.

  2. And ain’t it odd that when I describe maori as a pack of thieving, violent bludging assholes I’m told by their mealy-mouthed apologists that I shouldn’t judge them all by the actions of “a few”.
    But it’s just fine for white people to be judged collectively guilty for the alleged actions of their ancestors and to be forced to pay reparations based on unsubstantiated allegations….
    NZ has gone nuts.

  3. No public money should ever be given to any “tribe” at any time for any reason.

    There were no universally recognized property rights in pre-European NZ. Proof of pre-European land ownership is meaningless. Membership of any given tribe is also meaningless nonsense in the 21st century. All the tribes have interbred with each other and with non-Maori. If any so-called “tribe” has any sort of claim to any land, they should be required to provide documented proof of membership, and also what was stolen, how much was stolen, and by whom, and how “ownership” was originally divided among the individual members.

    The time for ending this farce is long overdue.

    Bill.

  4. No wonder we’re swamped with claims is it. And this fuckwit Finlayson just opened the door to hundreds more with his decision to allow sub tribes to claim.

    You can easily tell a socialist politician, always generous as hell with other people’s money.

    Maori should send a cheque for $39 billion (or whatever the cash & asset total is now) with a “Sorry” card.

    Please go away. I don’t deal with leftists because of their comprehension problems and you’re no better. I just do not have the time to waste on idiots.
