QUESTION FOR METIRIA

Ok, I'll readily admit that I enjoy being ever so slightly provocative in my posts designed to take the piss out of those inhabiting the dark side of the political divide and watching, with a degree of amusement, their reactions as a superb example of Pavlov's study of 'classical conditioning' ..... but this is a really serious question .....

Why the deafening silence from the Greens on the matter of Sonny Tau and his blatant disregard of the Wildlife Act 1953 in the taking of taking of five kereru from Stewart Island as kai for his mates up here in the North?

I mean this from a Party that actively encouraged challenges in the Environment Court to the proposal to open up the Denniston Plateau to mining on the basis of the need to protect the native carnivorous snail even though it's habitat was some distance from the proposed mining operation.

Can it possibly be that the Greens are trapped in the web of inverse racism so much so that their Maori co-leader (or any other Green MP) finds it impossible to criticize Maori when they seek to break the laws affording protection to endangered species.    Imagine if you can the howls of outrage from the Greens if it were a Pakeha (or any) National Party parliamentarian who did this.

Have to say the only person who comes out of this with his 'mana' intact is Mita Harris who resigned as a member of the Ngapuhi negotiating team with the Crown over their Treaty settlement claim in disgust of Tau's actions.   Mita is Chair of the Northland Conservation Board and has stood for National in previous elections.

Come on Metiria ... 'man' up or is it a case of selective hypocrisy rules Ok in the Greens?

Thanks for the admission you're a troll. However, that's been plain for quite some time so you needn't have bothered.

That must be in the finals for shallow, ignorant, gormless, hopeless comment of the month, SIGH!
Howie, or whoever you used to identify yourself as, that is a personal best for you.

Why not get off what ever you are on and contribute an intelligent fact based defence of the indefensible by sunny toe the pigeon aficionado but it is Sunday and you are likely reduced to your iPhone while out of the sumptuous, sinecure, swill trough.

Troll: my understanding trolls operate on the posts as comments, not as the author creating them, but whatever.

"Anything 'intelligent' to say on the post?"

Not much point given your previous admission is there?

"Why not get off what ever you are on and contribute an intelligent fact based defence of the indefensible by sunny toe the pigeon aficionado but it is Sunday and you are likely reduced to your iPhone while out of the sumptuous, sinecure, swill trough."

Don't ever change old fella.

Vet, you won't hear a word from the Greens chief brown Hippocrit.

Adolf ... for the reasons I have alluded to. Hypocrisy 1 vs Credibility 0.
