Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: 1300s - Māori settle Ihumātao.

1865 - Crown steals Ihumātao by force.

1867 - Crown sells the stolen land into private interests.

2020 - Crown finally buys back land from private interests and returns it those they stole it from.

I am not interested in people whining about how much taxpayers are paying for this solution. $30m is a drop in the bucket compared to how much money National wasted on that bloody flag referendum.

This was land stolen by the crown and sold into private ownership, it is righteous that the Crown buy it back.

The Government should be thanked for coming up with a solution and if it starts a chain reaction around New Zealand over other stolen land, good!

This is a very Kiwi solution that has involved everyone working together with a genuine desire to find a real solution.

Congratulations to the protestors, to the Government, to the Māori King, the Auckland City Council and to Fletchers.

History has finally healed one injustice.

OPINION: Minister Nanaia Mahuta charts brave new chapter for NZ Foreign Affairs
Martyn 'Bomber' Bradbury: Nanaia Mahuta's move from Māori Development Minister to Foreign Affairs was initially perceived as an acknowledgment of the rising political muscle of urban Māori that Willie Jackson's appointment represents, but Nanaia has found a style that transforms NZs Foreign Affairs and leads with real mana that is increasingly looking urgently needed.
