In a shocking move, controversial Maori activist Tame Iti has nominated himself for The Wuglies Award

The move has left most of his followers baffled since the Wuglies Award is only for the most ugliest New Zealand website. However according to a statement released by Tame Iti, he would not allow the white men to discriminate him from receiving a makeover should he win.

According to Tame Iti, he feels that he is the front runner and any attempts to disqualify him from taking part in the competition would lead him to perform his most popular act, the Whakapohane or the barring of the buttocks. The statement further read that that Mr. Tame Iti’s failure to get into the Top 5 is once again a ploy by the white-man.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for Microsoft New Zealand, the organizers of the award, has stated that the awards are clearly for ugly website and not person. He further stated that they do understand that Mr. Tame Iti needs an extreme makeover and optimization for the future, but that’s for him to do and not Microsoft.

In other news, WESTPAC Banking Corporation chief executive Gail Kelly says the interests of the shareholders and from the customers will be taken into account as the bank reviews its home loan rates.
