After decades of increasing misuse of Palmer's idiocy that gave unbridled power to persons, groups of self appointed disaffected and commercial entities seeking advantage in cahoots with an army of crats merely justifying their existence and funding, a long promised "reform' of the RMA handbrake on progress has been passed.
Only, to the disbelief and chagrin of those who have the growth of our nation as a central driver , National have only added a booster to that handbrake.
In a pitiful embracing of the long internationally despised apartheid that sustained a semblance of order in The Republic of South Africa, the Nats have in a desperate act of betrayal and cowardice given sanction to the creation of another layer of bureaucracy based on racial separation that will advantage, not a racial group allegedly being abused, but a powerful lobby of manipulators and crooks who see their reason to exist as any semblance of connection to the primitive savages who were fighting, killing and enslaving their fellow occupiers of this land, until the Victorians with a 'treaty' established a rule of law and order.
Now Koha demands will add to delay and cost of any and all entrepreneurial efforts to build a better nation, provide amenities and services, and add to the endless opportunities that will grow New Zealand Incorporated.
Taniwha will need to be pacified,
Sacred grounds that were only ever of any importance to very small groups of the Tangata Whenua while entirely ignored by a massive percentage of the rest of the disparate tribal entities who were more likely to desecrate such sites as an expression of denigration.

National have evolved a collective death wish and if it was not an appalling level of competence and ability possessed by the rabble who oppose everything, that should have them loaded on a truck to the knackers yard to be turned into petfood, the current mob occupying the NZ treasury benches would be in the first consignment.
Arrogance, third termitus, worn out, unimaginative, complacency call it what you will, the agenda items that cause many who care, not only expands but the level of incompetence gets greater as the months pass.
McCully's apparent actions as a rogue over the back stabbing at the likely behest of Kerry and Obama, of the sole functioning democracy in the Middle East and the collective silence of his caucus colleagues,

When added to the race based kowtowing to the minority, now elevated to an exalted state of a higher citizenship, could be seen as a wish to give the MP for St Mary's Bay his wish for a last Hurrah.
Now I could accept that that move may be the only way this country will send the pathos and slow decline of a once shooting star to his black hole but some courage, statesmanship and exhibitions of strength of character in adherence to the published basis for National Party existence could be a better way.
The abrogation of so much of the grand words and beliefs of the party founders in the betrayal of the RMA debacle does not bode well.
