Brash reaffirms Orewa I

Aaron has excerpts from Brash's speech today in Whangerei.
“There can be no basis for government funding based on race, no basis for separate Maori electorates, no basis for introducing Maori wards in local authority elections, and no obligation for local government to consult Maori in preference to other New Zealanders.

“I meant every word of the Orewa speech last year, and I stand by those conclusions today. We are one country with many peoples, not two peoples living in some form of partnership.
Yep.

UPDATE: More from TVNZ.

Why is New Zeland "two peoples", Maori and everyone else who don't count.

All of whom come from much much older cultures with just as much and often a lot more to offer of value.
