Alf is ready to say he was wrong about saying he was wrong.
He refers to the item posted here yesterday about the waka that (according to the Weekend Herald) nobody wants.
A tribal big-wig reckons that’s bollocks.
The Herald today is headlining a story about another handout to hapu.
The opening paragraph of the report says the Government’s gift of almost $2 million to the hapu to build a plastic waka for the Rugby World Cup has drawn outrage from some MPs.
But outrage, or any response of a critical nature, is bound to be the stuff of sour-grapes politicking from pissed off Opposition MPs who wish they had thought of it first.
The money being extracted from your pockets and mine, dear constituent, is going to a good cause.
