 What is co-governance?  

This is what democracy is like.  

A Maori and a non-Maori co-own a $1000 car.  They put in $500 each to make the purchase. They wash the car together, pay for the registration, warrant, and maintenance together, and have equal time driving it.  They also have 50/50 ownership of a car park. All the expenses connected with the car park are shared equally.

Then the Maori wants to change from democracy to co-governance.

 This is what co-governance is like.

The Maori suddenly demands 100% ownership of the car and the carpark.  He insists the non-Maori continues to wash the car, pay for the registration, maintenance and warrant.  The Maori gets to drive the car whenever he wants. The non-Maori only gets to drive it when the Maori is not driving it AND pays the Maori a fee every time he uses it. He also charges the non-Maori an on-going fee for parking the car on the car park. When the car is sold, the Maori takes all the money.

If the 83% NZ sheeple (the non-Maori population of New Zealand) are ready to change from democracy to co-governance and submit to the ultimate authority of a 17% Maori minority, being pushed through illegally, they should at least do so after studying a clear explanation. 

As Winston Peters says, co-governance and democracy are absolutely different. He is, of course, 100% correct.
Maori politicians deliberately use terms like “tweaked democracy” or “sophisticated governance” to muddle and confuse the public.  

Don’t buy into it. Keep firmly in mind the story of the $1000 car.
