Gisborne’s Racism Wastism

Nearly three-quarters of the people who responded to the web poll question about giving Poverty Bay a dual name voted against such a move. Comments below.

Turanganui a Kiwa / Poverty Bay?

No – 72% (stick with Poverty Bay alone)

Yes – 25%

Once again, the racists in council get reprimanded by public opinion.

Will they listen? Maybe.

Will they learn? Probably not.

The question: “Do you support moving to a dual name for Gisborne’s coastal bay to Turanganui a Kiwa/Poverty Bay?”

Gisborne paper item.

Some selected comments:

  • A referendum first please councillors!
  • Unconstitutional GDC stuff-up again.
  • Astonishing that the Mayor has so blatantly side-stepped fair consultation. Unless Gisborne speaks up, it’s a done deal. He represents a group hell-bent on relegating Cook to the back pages of Gisborne history.
  • No yet another dumb idea from our Mayor
  • How about changing the name of our Mayor for someone new!
  • Don’t agree. Spend money on roading instead.
  • Leave the names the same. The world knows us as Gisborne in Poverty Bay.
  • just spend the effort and money on things that matter…
  • No wot a total waste of time and money for no gain.
  • Why complicate things? Its a waste of time and money.
  • How about spending money on water, sewerage etc before…
  • There are more urgent needs for this district than a name change. That will not do anything towards getting basics such as roads, waste water, etc etc done. The council needs to get its priorities in order.
  • Dual name? You mean a first step to losing Poverty Bay altogether, along with Cook, Endeavour and Young Nicks Head, all steadily gouged out of the public eye.

Next question perhaps? Do you support a dual name for the Mayor?

    1. I agree with you Roger. The education system ( brainwashing ….’get em when they’re young’ ) is so loaded with Marxist racist pro-part-Maori lies, along with the rewritten NZ history, this nonsense will be the norm.

  1. We need a NZ wide party to run for local bodies as well as central Govt and get people into seats who won’t tolerate or initiate all this BS and get on with doing the real job which is serving the ratepayers and the taxpayers rather than such racist nonsense as the Gisborne BS. It’s a great shame that 1Law4All didn’t take off.
