Key has played all of this very poorly.
Telling NZers they would get a say on the TPPA in Parliament.
Deny the deal is being signed in Auckland.
Deny the deal is being signed at SkyCity.
Start a fight with Maori over the TPPA by signing days before Waitangi Day.
Threaten to not turn up at Waiting Day.

All Key has done is ensure the protest is massive, and that’s what National are trying for now, knowing they can rally redneck support if events turn ugly.

Key going to Waitangi Day will be based on how Police treat protestors tomorrow. If it’s heavy handed and there is anger at the way Police behave, Waitangi could erupt.
