Attorney General Chris Finlayson has told journalists that the fact only about 20 people turned up to a hui on the foreshore and seabed issue wasn’t a problem.
He said it’s about the quality of the responses, not the quantity.
It seems that the poor turnout was due to a lack of advertising.
If Finlayson is interested only in “quality”, rather than trying to give as many people as possible an opportunity to be heard on the issue, then I have an idea that will save a lot of needless expense.
He could just stay home and give his speech to himself. He could record the speech and then play it back to himself. I’m sure he’d be pleased by what he heard.
