A new Treaty claim

September 15th, 2011 at 7:00 am by David Farrar

I understand that for the first time ever, the Crown has filed a claim against an Iwi.

The Government is claiming that Ngai Tahu sold them dud land in Christchurch and they want Ngai Tahu to buy the land back :-)

    Great stuff, only fair to expect the rules to apply in both directions, while they’re at it they should apply for refunds on any tax payer funding for Margaret Mutu’s education, and on Len Browns break dance lessons, as we obviously got a dud with them as well.

    Could this concept be extended? Like, if the Government sells me dud promises for the use of my tax should I be able to claim it back?

    What is the crown intending to do with the five blankets, 4 muskets, the bottle of Hokonui hooch and the pound of tobacco when the price is refunded?

    1840 – Polack, J. S. Manners and Customs of the New Zealanders

    True legitimate valour has nothing to do with the composition of the warrior, but superior tactics indeceit and treachery; and it was a full knowledge of this ingredient in their character, that induced Captain Cook to observe, “Never trust a. New Zealander.”

    DPF, this was whispered a little while back, but since you ‘raise’ it again you should perhaps use what seemed a more apt term –
    the land is not quite so much ‘dud’, as is it ‘faulty’
    It may be covered under the Commerce Act if the Treaty Tribunal won’t touch it.

    Would a blanket adjusted for inflation be considered an air bed?

    It broke before 2012 as well, so it’s just within the Manufacturer’s Warranty.
