Alf’s good mate Paula Bennett shouldn’t lose much sleep.
But she should be ready for the United Nations to give her a call on a matter within her ministerial bailiwick.
The reason: the Mayor of New Plymouth is spitting the dummy after voters in his bailiwick rejected a council vote for a Maori ward.
Andrew Judd, the mayor in question, is now talking of going to the United Nations with a complaint against the Government about the legislation governing the process whereby our indigenous persons can seek special voting privileges.
Exactly what this has to do with the United Nations is anyone’s guess.
