Resource Legislation Amendment Bill – Third reading – Part 10


it was too much Ron Mark Thank You mr. Speaker I rise on behalf of New Zealand first and Mike I’m particularly my colleague Dennis O’Rourke who saw most of us leader this bill through the select committee process and and I trust that I’ll do him justice by taking her slot Mr Speaker I want to start by making it very very clear to the house when New Zealand is not going to go through the selection talking about bottom line except for this matter and we wish to make it very very clear as a party that of any party in this house today debating this bill and voting for it in particular wishes to be in government with us post 23 September they will have to accept that we will repeal this bill saying it again New Zealand first is making it very very clear that if this bill passes in the third reading those parties that vote for it if they wish to be in government with New Zealand first post-september night are 2017 better accept this bill will be repealed mr. speaker where New Zealand first first spoke to the Pro to the government we said we were willing to cooperate on any amendment any change the resource for our legislation so long as it was aimed at simplification so long it was aimed at reducing delays so long as it was aimed at reducing costs so long it was as user friendly so long as it did adequately provide house a land for housing but without compromising the act we said that those things would be subject to a number of things such as our belief and our adherence to the principle of there being one law for all regardless of race creed or ethnicity we said that we would preserve sections 5 6 i’ll get to Marama Fox soon Sir preserve sections 5 6 & 7 but with climate change as a matter of national imperative subject to preserving district city and regional council democracy and not undermining that in the same way that this government did in 2013 with the local government amendment bill so long as it ensured adequate housing land for housing without compromising the act that no excessive resource and with no excessive resorting to crude executive ministerial powers of the like that this bill now entrenches especially when it comes to overriding local democracy and the people’s view of how the resources within their territories should be used should be managed and how development should occur those were the fundamentals of the ground that we laid out in an offer to assist this government should it choose to engage with the right honorable Winston Peters but it did not where are we now we’re at a situation now where we are watching aw one of the other things that we made very clear in this debate along the way is we’re going to get rid of the Maori party through the election process because people will see through this legislation exactly what they’ve got they’ve got a government that is now been an outrageous situation with this house is by the thinnest skin of majority going to pass legislation because the tail is wagging the mongrel government dog like a lamb like a lamb and a member will resume his seat bye-bye I just want to warn the member that he knows this is a sensitive debate it’s a debate we’re strongly help there are strongly held views on both sides but and I say this as a loving owner of dogs it’s not it’s not appropriate describe a government in that way Thank You mr. speaker for your guidance and it’s interesting that the speaker should raise the issue… order David Bennett can you please just try and control yourself especially using words like that rom mark thank you sir, and I’m going to take the que about this being a sensitive debate and I’m going to take that make the observation of how bizarre we have went and New Zealand first is often referring in this house two Pepsi coke governance and Pepsi coke legislation we have another one these Pepsi Coke moments does it where labor labor as champion against something that they we would say did in the past and I go back to 2003 and I can go back to 2004 where this very same government railed against them for doing the very same sorts of things and let me just for the benefit of the Maori party who’s so in love with their new friends over that side just read out a quote I turn now to some of the loopy provisions that provide for the protection of ancestral landscapes we new zealand first act and national asked members opposite to tell us what an ancestral landscape is it goes on to say say I ask members to look at the fiasco of ngawha prison and the conduct of ngapuhi what will this bill due to remove the brown mail that is going on in New Zealand where by Maori organisations object as of right right through the process I am happy to table the documents to confirm that this is going on this bill will make it worse and that it is bad for race relations bad for the environment bad for the economy and this bill does absolutely not in that regard and I now come now to the dirty tricks part of the bill that mr. speaker was the Honorable Nick Smith 6 of may 2003 speaking against the Labour government who ramming through resources and management act amendments that that’s not but wait there’s more 42 December 2004 when we come to some of the detailed issues why is it that members opposite are going to amend the Resource Management Act to make Maori iwi authorities into public bodies that is a revolutionary constitutional change i am sure clayton cosgrove has not been telling his constituents in the Waimakariri that he is off to Parliament saying that Ngai Tahu who is no longer a private body but a public body and it will have regulatory powers normally restricted to publicly elected bodies and that is a step forget this that is a step backwards that takes us further down the road to having two standards of citizenship in this country who said that Nick Smith the Honorable next Smith and his Pepsi coke moment of attacking labor who was passing similar in fact we would say in New Zealand first the exact same measures into legislation but he wasn’t finished there. order we will resume his seat Chris Hipkins will stand withdraw and apologize I withdraw and apologize think we’re speaking rom mark oh there’s more but wait there’s more nor do we see anything in this bill that will enable us to address the huge and growing problem of iwi holding communities to rent some and effectively asking for wait for it brown mail Brown that’s brown mail not ma le this is brown male ma IL in order for the projects to proceed mr. speaker this is precisely what New Zealand first has been trying to tell mr. the Honourable nick Smith the minister who’s brought this debacle to the house and this minister should stand up and withdraw the bill and apologize to the nation because this Minister campaigned on those words of brown mail of Maori entities been look at me mr. Smith I’m trying to help you try a brown Maori entities been made into public bodies asserting the rights of the democratic rights of the citizens the district’s the regions of New Zealand mr. Smith there is a word that nobody is allowed to use in this house but it is ringing in my ears right now as we sit here in the third reading waiting for the votes to be passed and the irony of all of this is that this bill will only get through because the Maori Party is supporting the man who believes that they’re gonna who knows that they’re going to brown mail the rest of aotearoa and every development and every consent and every opportunity where someone’s trying to free up land to build a house in will come the iwi with a non mandated well now a statutory power assisted by the minister with his new overriding powers to override the objections of fed farmers of the Chamber’s commerce and put his weight behind those Marty entities that he is cemented into law mr. speaker there is a phrase there is a there is one line that I did rings in my ear New Zealand first stands for equality New Zealand first stands for one nation for one people for one law for all and it is our belief than this Parliament that the fundamental principle of democracy is that we are all created equal in God’s eyes and nothing in legislation will ever change that no matter how many flip flops mr. Nick Smith makes or I really called Marama Fox but just make it clear that this is a call which is substitute of the National Party and therefore a 10 minute not a five more call Marama Fox
