    New Zealand's Maori king snubs Prince William

    New Zealand's Maori king snubs Prince William
    March 4, 2014

    WELLINGTON - New Zealand's Maori king has refused to meet Prince William during a royal tour next month, with his office saying Tuesday he is "not a carnival act" for visiting dignitaries.

    Prime Minister John Key expressed disappointment at the snub, which would have involved Prince William visiting King Tuheitia during his April 7-16 trip to New Zealand with wife Catherine and baby son Prince George

    But King Tuheitiaís office rejected the offer, arguing the 90 minutes allotted for the visit to the Maori leaderís base in the North Island was not long enough for proper protocols to be observed.

    His representatives also slammed the "faceless bureaucrats" who organised the itinerary, accusing them of adopting an inflexible approach when dictating the terms of the proposed visit.

    After agonising over what to do, the Maori leader decided not to agree to the meeting and sent a personal letter to the royal couple outlining his reasons, his office said in a statement.

    That's not snubbing - that's telling the truth

    he is a carnival act, king of handouts

    King of nothing, unless his bludging Tainui tribe count; his 'kingship' not recognised by many other NZ tribes including the largest one, Ngapuhi
    Note his greatest achievement has been increasing his annual travel expenses from NZ$250,000 (his mother) to NZ$1.2million
    And he doesn't speak Maori.



    also see: 'The King of Huntly, perhaps'
    (Huntly, population 7,067, once voted the Ugliest Town in New Zealand)

    ‘Dad, I fink I got it wrong again.’


    I fink he looks a bit like a Dick Emery character - Bover boy - from the 1970's show -

    Maybe he didn't get it wrong this time ? he shouldn't have everything dictated to him about the meeting, or at least he should not feel like that's the way it is .

    Prince William was saved the embarrassment of small talk. His aids had drawn up a list of helpful suggestions to smooth the way (you can add to it)
    Do you have tattooed rings on your butt cheeks?
    Do Maori single parent Mothers get more welfare than Pakka tarts.?
    How come the Maori features are looking more Pakka every generation.
    Is there a talented Maori that can direct an Oscar winning Movie about Maori slavery,like that "Lord of the Rings" fella.
    What do Maoris like about all the Pacific islanders moving here?
    Do you inter marry with islanders?

    I really don't know,just threw that in at random,knowing human nature the answers maybe predictable.
    N.Z boys may know the answers,if it is ever discussed amongst them when sharing a pint with one of the Maoris.
