Headline Missing In Action

Here are this morning’s headlines concerning Dr brash’s speech yesterday.

Sir Humphrey’s – Adolf Fiinkensein:- Funding Boost Fast Tracks Treaty Settlements
The Herald – Ruth Berry National's race policy excludes GP visits
Stuff – Haydon Dewes Brash heckled on race plans
Newstalk ZB - unnamed Turia accuses Brash of creating division
TVNZ – unnamed Brash revives one-law-for-all policy
RadioNZ-unnamed Brash's policy talks up a storm
XtraMS -unnamed Brash Race Policy Stirs Storm

The most remarkable and far reaching policy announcement for Maori has been ignored by media whose thirst for negatice headlines knows no bounds. The poor Maori bastards who are unemployed, poorly housed, sick and undereducated have been denied the piece of news they have been waiting for for twenty years. Their claims are going to be settled! The only commentator to pick up on this is Dr Michael Basset.

All the screaming and wailing is coming from the 'bro-racracy' whose gravy train yesterday became a trainwreck in waiting.

This is a very clever speech because the ordinary Maori people are fed up with the endless bickering and bullshit. When they get to the ballot box they will vote for Don Brash's Fast Track Settlement policy.

Just you watch.

I believe that the vast majority of Maori will go with the fast track settlements. They're very aware of the damage a few loudmouths are doing.
The pity of it is, after the lawyers and bureaucrats have had their snouts in this particular trough, very little benefit will filter down to the average Maori family, dammit.

The fact is we have a lot of cash sitting handy thanks to Cullen.

We have an oportunity to fund, fast track and settle the very real injustices that have taken place and allow the money to get to the people it should and bypass the already wealthy lawyers who have made and industry of the "process".

I can't see anyone thinking that waiting 20 years just to be heard is a good option.

Time to get it done and move on without the fuel for the extremists.

so adolf..how is your long-mooted possibility of coalition with the maori party looking..?...would 'dead in the water' be an understatement..

so..let's see how things are going..no maori party..act teetering...peters on 5% and a strong contendor in tauranga (national again..heh heh..plus his stated opposition to brashs' race policies.)..dunne with one or two still there...

she's not looking too good in the coalition stakes...eh..?

maybe national are going to achieve an mmp first......mind you..no party under mmp anywhere has ever won a clear majority..

but the self-deluded who are advising brash must think they can do it..why else would they be burning off possible coalition partners with apparent gay abandon..?...their only certainty at this time is dunne..cor..!

your thoughts on this conundrum adolf.?

phil. On the surface, not too good just now. However, three weeks is a long time in politics. (I put this up a couple of hours ago but it didn't make it. Musta forgot the code.

When Orewa 1 appeared the MSM were slow to notice the effect it had on the public. Is the same happening here?

It is amazing how the MSM continually play down the success Brash has had since becoming the National leader both on his own party by bringing it closer to it's core philosophies and on public policy where regardless of the election result his influence has been profound.

The speech yesterday was very fine and in my mind establishes him as the finest speechmaker in NZ politics.
