Conservative party candidate Mr Schuker must suffer from shortterm memory loss.
His embellished synopsis of self-appraisal in regards to campaigning for local government honouring the treaty is laughable if not insulting.
In the past, Mr Shuker is a complainer never having anything positive to say about Maori issues.
Regular article submissions to the now defunct, ‘‘Truth’’ newspaper and any other reputable newsagent willing to print his letters. Articles like ‘‘Beaches must stay with the crown, & ‘‘Just like Egypt’’ printed in the Waikato Times & Dominion Post are indifferent to letter provided to the Taupo Times.
Being disingenuous personifies why many New Zealanders distrust politicians, a reason why some are reluctant to vote.
A friend once said to me; ‘a politician is someone who shakes your hand before an election and shakes confidence after it.
Somehow I have no doubts about that, mainly because of the many promises the parties are making, almost willy nilly, to gain votes.
My personal issues will be ignored, mainly because I am a fervent believer in the sanctity of life.
The issue of abortion will not go away and it never will and the same will be for euthanasia.
Successive governments have swept it under the carpet. It will, however, keep rearing its ugly
