Backdowns are growing by the day. Nice to see a Government so in control!
1) On top of cancelling all future school closures, Mallard is now saying they may reverse decisions already made.
2) Crown ownership of the foreshore and seabed is back on the table. Would have been hard to keep arguing against it when a survey shows that even the majority of Maori favour Crown ownership.
3) The Government is also saying that it may remove treaty clauses from existing legislation if found to be unnecessary.
4) Clark has backed away from the original assusrances about how her office received the Sri Lanka lawyer’s letter and has implied some or her electorate staff may be sacked for their role in the affair.
