Whangamata Marina

I love the concern from the local iwi about shellfish stocks as being a prime reason for the cancellation of the proposal. Would make an interesting parliamtentary question as to the number of illegal (or pseudo-legal koha) hauls of shellfish have been intercepted around that area - and the associated iwi of those involved.

More amusingly I heard the comments of the Maori party saying the Whangamata marina society should be compensated for their loss. Interesting that this seems to be so far embedded in their culture now that they see every set back to someone as being deserving of a monetary handout?
