    Whats the problem here ?
    " to help the volunteers who manage governance at a Marae level"

    So, instead the govt should only offer help and assistance if you are white .
    Plenty of handouts and assistance to mainly pakeaha groups .

    just maori bashing , again .

    And tell me why my Rates should be spent on a group selected by ethnicity.

    If the situation was reversed all hell would break loose.

    Plenty of projects like this get funding, all various cultures, whatever. Maori are part of the society in NZ, they deserve funding just as much as anyone else. I agree with 1101, what's the big deal?

    If you don't like where your rates go, don't pay them, but remember most of it is going to be used in things that actually benefit you like road maintenance etc

    And also, there will be things funded that benefit you, that others have helped pay for with their tax money, that they will probably never use or aren't applicable to them. So it all balances out in the end.

    Maybe you would be good enough to point me to a project which receives funding from Rates or Tax which is for “Pakeha” only?

    If you're talking about David Semour of the ACT Party he got 220,000 votes, so there are a few who don't see him as a one man band, and the party wasn't ethnically picked.

    Once they even had THIS pillar of society as a member.
