I find it appalling that deputy prime minister Mark Brown still continues to treat the public as simpletons, with his on-going and constant mixture of disseminating news of all sorts of varieties; truth, half-truths, real news, fake news, misinformation, disinformation, half-lies, manipulated BS and so on.
We are so grateful that’s how Nandi felt on his return back to Atiu after his loss in the last election to young Te-Hani, because he no longer has to go through the dusty township of Atiu.
Former Demo MP Te-Hani Brown’s election success in 2018 as the Cook Islands’ youngest ever elected MP for Areora-Tengatangi-Ngatiarua in Atiu, was a historical moment to savour for her family and friends.
Reading the news in the papers following Mangaia's newly elected Demo MP Agnes Armstrong's by-election success, deputy prime minister Mark Brown was clearly the first cab off the ranks with the shocking news of Demo MP Te-Hani Brown's defection to the CIP coalition government.
I wish to refer to the Clerk of the House of Ariki’s comments on TV where he says the House of Ariki disapproves of burials at sea because it goes against Cook Islands custom and that government should move to block this by legislation.
