When will Don Brash claim Vikings settled NZ before Maori?
Brash attacks Maori - again
Former National leader Don Brash attacked Maori in a provocative speech to party faithful at Orewa last night - returning to the issues that propelled him to the leadership six years ago.
Titled Return to Orewa, Brash said Maori have no special rights and there was no grounds for a separate Maori political party.
He also attacked National's economic performance and criticised what he said was high spending, over-regulation and a refusal to back down on a number of Labour-led policies.
Political scientist Bryce Edwards said the speech was remarkable and an attack on Prime Minister John Key. It represented a split between the National moderates and radicals.
Yawn, Brash is giving Maori's the bash again and attacking John Key. I love watching rednecks turn on eachother. When will Don Brash just come out as some on the right have and claim that the Vikings actually settled NZ meaning Maori have no special customary rights whatsoever because the rabid right are mixing 'Global warming is a hoax' and 'Maaaaaaaaaaaori get too much' with a splash of 'the Celts settled NZ before Maori did'.
Right wing crazy Muriel Newman thinks Celts being here first is important enough to have it's own 'pre-Maori history' forum discussion board on her New Zealand Centre for Political Research site.
Hilariously the The 'Coastal Coalition' website is part of the NZCPR website.
Muriel also refers to Martin Doutre as an "expert" in pre-Maori history. Doutre is an "archeo-astronomer" who believes that Mt Wellington is a primitive observatory used by pre-Maori settlers. His website is here:.
Interestingly the commenters on the "pre-Maori history" forum thread are many of the same ones commenting on the Foreshore and Seabed thread on NZCPR's website.
ACT's 'global warming denial' added with Muriel's' Vikings settled NZ' nonsense adds up to Don Brash's 'Maaaaaaaaaaaaaori get too much'.
I love it when the right wing all sing in tune.
