I went to Waitangi to challenge John Key to run New Zealand as a democracy.
I did so in person as the PM entered Te Tii Marae, and again on the Treaty House lawn by way of this video, now up on our Treatygate You Tube channel.
My professional cameraman had to pull out for work reasons, so Mike Butler stepped into the breach at the last minute.
Unfortunately neither of us realised how much of a factor the wind was going to be — hence the two options for you here.
Above is a re-recorded audio track over a still shot from the video.
Below is the windblown original.
Thanks to Mike and Mr News, Vinny Eastwood of Guerilla Media.
Over the weekend, Vinny and I will flesh out the video with cutaways to supporting evidence.
Then I hope you’ll send the link to as many people as possible. Tell them the pushback has started!
