An except from the most amazing story I have read in a long while (even if it is from HuffPo!):
“”In a few weeks my vacation is over. I’m going back to Uganda, to work with my Ugandan business partner Abu Musuuza, who by the way is a practicing Muslim (and I, by the way, am a seldom practicing Jew). With our American investors, Ryan Allis and Ron Boehm, our company Village Energy is going to provide light and power to as many people as we can get it to. And even though al Qaeda tried, I’ll be damned if they manage to stop me or anyone else on that flight from going out and achieving our life’s ambitions”"
The Christchurch Press today has the Geographic Place Names board stuffing round with the name of Hawea, in Central Otago. (This was on Stuff web site earlier – see link below). The board wants to put a macron (horiztontal bar) over the “a” to ensure it is pronounced as in Maori. The instigator is the Department of Conservation, NZPA says on signs for the Hawea Conservation Park.
Like blackmail, this will never end. “Aotearoa” for New Zealand is the ultimate goal.
Bro. Key’s team by caving into the Maori Party on W(h)anganui, has opened the flood gates.
The Maori-stacked Geographic Place Names board is going to force Maori language spelling on the English language in New Zealand. Compare this with taxpayer funded media unchallenged by anyone in mangling English words in the Maori language, eg pirimia for prime minister, wairehe for radio, and terewhina for television.
NZ desperately needs a new right-wing party to counter the Bro. Key coalition’s toadying to the activists of the tiny Maori Party.
In the meantime with tourist town Hawea… the rest of the world is putting up English-language signs in tourist resorts. New Zealand is trying to confuse international visitors with a symbol (the macron) that few of them will understand.
my understanding is that shit for brains Kenneth Mair is an advisor for the Ma(-) ori Party who are partners with the Nat lead Govt who have put the H in Wanganui. Ha(-) wea will have the macron inserted, no doubt about it.
I still believe that a major goal will be Auckland .. Tamaki Makarau (whatever) when the super city get closer to being.
Isn’t it funny how Maori tell us that WE are spelling their words incorrectly with our ABC’s and now they want Greek symbols inserted as well .. mmm
Rod @ 2.20pm. Thanks for that informative and entertaining link. Filmed a few years ago now (and rather long as you indicate), but this exposition of how real “science is done” is simply expressed and very compelling. Well worth an investment of 30 minutes.
Or when Obama will start being a leader instead of playing golf and sun-bathing. Young Iranians calling out for Western support, even if it is just moral support, and Obama gives his tacit approval to the current regime.
