Only the really gullible believe fishing stories.
Yes I read that and thought aren't they a bit late for April Fools?
Yep, Aprl fools was yesterday.
Wait until the ethnics get hold of this. If one thinks Waitangi settlements are outrageous we aint seen nothing yet.
Hi weta, I actually like Te Wai Pounamu (The water of Greenstone) but it's the fishing story about the other island that I don't totally believe. I think that is just stretching the arms a bit much.
But which Maori names will be used? The South Island has at least two Maori names, probably more -
Te Waipounamu (The Greenstone Isle)
Te-Waka-a-Maui (the canoe of Maui)
anyhow, the people have spoken - take a look at the poll results
Sounds awfully fishy to me ;-p
