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.
