It’s a bit rich for John Key to go round saying that it is up to Len Brown to sort out the Maori Statutory Board mess. After all, the board was imposed upon Len and the Auckland Council by central government i.e. John Key and his crony Rodney Hide. In my opinion responsibility to act is not incumbent upon Len Brown. It is negligent on John Key's part, but more so Rodney Hide's, to impose a fractured framework upon the people of Auckland and then absolve any obligation to remedy the situation. But I guess that’s what we’ve come to expect from this lazy government.
