As a supporter of NZ becoming a republic, it is heartening to see that the Kingitanga seek to raise the issue of constitutional reform with iwi. Any future written constitution will have to be supported by Maori. If the last 150-odd years has taught us anything, it is that. It will be especially interesting to hear what korero goes on with Tuhoe. Depending on what their angle is, I could quite happily support some kind of cantonised NZ.
