Are We There Yet – Kindle version via Amazon

$12.00

Three questions: ‘Where have we got to with the Treaty of Waitangi?’; “Is where we have got to a good place?’ and ‘Where do we go from here?’ This book is a record of what we discovered as we tried to answer these – what we thought at the time were simple – questions. But nothing is simple when you start asking questions about the Treaty of Waitangi! Two years later we have emerged battered and bruised but with something we want to say. ‘Fellas, we might be about to crash the truck and you’re not even looking!”

What we’ve ended up with, and what we present here, is a personal assessment of the way New Zealand is governed and, in particular, of the changes that have been happening to peoples’ political rights over the past few years. Changes that have been introduced in response to pressure to honour the Treaty of Waitangi. That means this book is ultimately about New Zealand’s constitution but don’t be put off by that word. This stuff matters and we could do a whole lot better than we are.
