What is David Parker saying? (starts at 1:01)
. . . it was that it was a legal decision not the right decision. The Court found that the Minister acted within his powers to approve the sale of the Crafar Farms to the Pengxin Shanghai syndicate but not that he acted reasonably because that’s not their mandate?
Is he criticising Land Information Minister Maurice Williamson for following the law?
If he had acted illegally would that have been reasonable?
It might be on Planet Labour. But in New Zealand under National the government follows the law.
