Waikato-Tainui, the indigenous persons who occupy the Waikato region, seem to have learned something from the Labour Party.
The something they seem to have learned is the art of challenging – if not overthrowing – the leadership.
Alf learns this today from the local rag in that neck of the woods.
Attempts are being made to unseat the boss of Waikato’s economic powerhouse Tainui Group Holdings, in a document questioning his leadership appearing ahead of a crucial meeting this weekend.
But chief executive Mike Pohio’s supporters say it’s a smear campaign ahead of a big request for funds from the tribe to finance the company’s ambitious growth plans.
Nobody seems to be willing to put their hands up and identify themselves as being part of the overthrow plot.
