Making Gibberish an official language would have been a better choice.

That is what happens when you have an official language. I would not be surprised to see them insist that it all be repeated in sign language as well. There are a lot of court officials/translators making even more money out of this.

Dunno how you come up with this.

I know for a fact that all existing Court staff have to do this - there are no new court officials/translators involved.

I'm not saying I agree or disagree but I know that it is going to be funny watching staff that have been given no formal training butchering their way through these phrases.

An uneducated guess Tukupa. Not the first time I have been wrong and it probably will not be the last either :) I bow to your superior knowledge.

I do because it’s just another step along the way of the National Party’s policy of Separatism.

Even though English is spoken by the majority of New Zealanders Maori is an official language of New Zealand. I see nothing wrong with keeping the Maori laguage alive by having people learn the language. I am guessing that only a small minority of New Zealanders speak fluent Maori. I see nothing wrong with words of greeting being spoken in both Maori and English.

But isn't using both languages more like reverse separatism...?

The people who will be subjected to it the most are the criminals and they don't give a sh1t.

The court system is clogged up enough as it is. Wasting time making noises in a language that very few understand will clog it up even more.

What an absolute waste of time and money!

Wait until they introduce it in prisons.

This crap serves zero purpose, there isn't a single person in NZ who understands Maori but not English, Its an answer to a problem that does not and never will exist, Its bullshit nonsense, Advocated by fools and idiots that should have been dismissed the moment they raised the idea..

Mind you, on reflection, Maori has been spoken in Courts for some considerable time.

Paremoremo – Waikeria – Tongariro – Rangipo – Kaitoke - Rimutaka - Arohata - ………….. if you get my drift. ;)

Easily, everything they’ve done from the Seabed & Foreshore to the "Race Based" Government handouts reeks of Separatism.

Hope they also do it in sign language as well as it is also an official language of NZ.

Sign language has more relevance than Maori

Yes, but, just like Maori should only be used when Maori are around, sign language should only be used when deaf people are around.

The majority of people in New Zealand speak English, or a Kiwi version of it. Why complicate matters by using a second language, especially a non technical one. About as useful as spouting Latin to impress the peasants.
