The leader of the opposition has his own agenda for Waitangi day.
Bill English is attending the Ngai Tahu Treaty Festival.

English told Chris Lynch he is pleased to see changes have been made at Waitangi - but he's chosen not to attend celebrations there again this year, because of controversy that's occurred in the past.
