Description

Wiremu, a Maori holding a lightning conductor attached to a battery, stands severely singed in a field during a thunderstorm. His friend tells him that claiming 'lightning rights' was going a step too far.

Refers to the claim of the Maori Council for water rights as granted by the Treaty of Waitangi, and which had become important over the question of asset sales. Many thought that the claims were becoming too wide-ranging in scope.
