A month or so ago, I received an email from a senior Ngapuhi leader, Tane Tepuna.

He is very anti co-governance.

He recognises that co-governance is the absolute worst thing for the average Maori on the street, and for the rest of New Zealand.

More recently, he sent an email to Shortland Street the TV show objecting to all the Te Reo being spoken on that show, which he copied me in on.
