Rueben Taipari Porter and his wife Heeni Hoterene crashed a closed meeting between specifically invited Marae, Hapu and Iwi representatives with the Norwegian multinational oil and gas company Statoil representatives today.

Mr Porter challenged the Hui as to why the people and whanau haven’t been invited. One of the Iwi representatives accused Rueben that Prime minister John Key is his boss despite Mr Porter opposing government plans for deep sea oil drilling.

Mr Porter has advised the meeting was organised by Haami Piripi, the former CEO of Te Taura Whiri i te Reo Māori who is obviously looking for another well paying job in Wellington.

Reuben Taipari Porter has been nominated as the potential Mana movement candidate for the Northland by-election.
