Alf is agreeing with Labour’s Auckland Issues spokesperson Phil Twyford, who reckons the Auckland Council’s funding row with its Maori Statutory Board is evidence the board structure is flawed.
But only up to a point.
Actually, flawed is a somewhat mild way of expressing it.
The board has become a bloody travesty.
Twyford should use red-blooded language like that, too, because he says it should be abolished.
If it’s simply flawed, then it can be fixed.
