The Hobson’s Pledge Road Show

The Hobson’s Pledge Road Show

Don Brash and Casey Costello delivered the Hobson’s Pledge message to 200 people at the Havelock North Function Centre on Tuesday night, 28 Feb 2017.

Casey spoke about the wrong of Maori blaming their ancestry for being deprived of opportunities when they have had Treaty settlements, separate Maori broadcasting, separate Maori preschools and schools, and a separate Maori Party.

Standing on the outside it would seem the consideration and recognition of Maori issues ensured every opportunity for Maori to succeed, the Hawke’s Bay Today newspaper reported Casey as saying.

Here’s an opportunity for all you regular blog contributors to provide 1Law4All with some insights. The nub is simple.

In this election year, when campaigning against the racist policies of National, Labour, Greens et al, should the tenor by nice or strident? Should 1Law4All go for the jugular, or be measured and modest?

It matters not whether it’s words or pictures – what shall it be?

Consider the images you’ll see if you click the links below – various facebook pages. Clicking on the links will open a new tab in your web browser.

Picture No. 1    Picture No. 2   Picture No. 3   Picture No. 4

Are they over-the-top? About right? Too pussyfoot? Those images and perhaps more like them can be seen on the 1Law4All facebook page.

Most bloggers will recognise the imprimatur of John Ansell.


On another, but related matter, it’s said that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so how does this sound for an election jingle?

Make New Zealand ONE Again

Would you wear a cap or tee shirt emblazoned with these slogans?

The hoohah at Auckland University

The Hoohah at Auckland University

and the Political Cliquette Brigade

You can have a Maori or Chinese or Pasifika student association but you better dare not have a European one!

Auckland University has a Maori Students Association, a Pasifika Students Association, a Chinese Students Association and many other student associations including a Muslim Student Association.

But the creation of a European Student Association has caused outrage amongst the snowflakes and Susan Devoyd who has said she will be watching this group very closely indeed.

The Idiot[cy] Goes On

The Idiot[cy] Goes On

16 Mar 2017

Once the Te Awa Tupua (Wanganui River Claims Settlement) Bill becomes law, the Wanganui River is to gain its own legal identity with all the corresponding rights, duties and liabilities of a legal person. But what does this actually mean? Will it have all the same rights and responsibilities as anyone else?

WHAT IS A LEGAL PERSON?

A legal person has all the rights, duties and liabilities of a person but is not a natural person – a human being. When it comes to understanding the river’s new rights and responsibilities, it’s easiest to think of it like you’d think of a company.

DOES IT HAVE HUMAN RIGHTS?

In New Zealand, legal persons, like companies, have guaranteed rights just like actual people (natural people). The same way that a natural person has a right to freedom of expression, so does a company that owns a newspaper. This principle will now apply to the river. Not all of the rights will apply but any right that it makes sense for a legal person to have, the river will have as well. This will include things like the right to natural justice.

WILL IT PAY TAXES?

Basically the same tax rules apply to it as apply to other legal persons. It probably depends on what it does, but if it starts supplying goods or services, it will have the same GST responsibilities as a company would.

WHO PAYS FOR IT?

The settlement’s total cost to the NZ taxpayer is $81 million. $30m for the establishment of Te Korotete (a fund to support the health and wellbeing of the river); $200,000 per year for 20 years for Te Pou Tupua (the “face” of the river, or the two natural persons appointed to act for the river); $430,000 for the establishment of Te Heke Ngahuru (a strategy established to ensure the future environmental, social, cultural and economic health and well being of Te Awa Tupua).

Getting The Message Through

Getting The Message Through

This Australian message could also apply to many other Western nations. New Zealand included.


When our feminists ignore the female genital mutilation, oppression of women, rape of little children of both sexes, we have a problem.

When our politicians condemn an elected member of the Dutch Parliament for coming to Australia to express his views, we have a problem.

When Australians are callously murdered in cold blood by immigrants of any nationality, religion or race and our government offers sympathy to the family of the murderer before offering sympathy to the family of the victim then we have a problem.

When Australians are living below the poverty line and have nowhere to live while immigrants of any nationality, religion or race are prioritised by the government, then we have a problem.

When 16,000 English speaking skilled professional workers are refused visas and 12,000 uneducated, non-English speaking refugees are accepted, then guess what? We have a problem.

When Australians are called racists and bigots for speaking out about their concerns about the above, then again, we as a nation have a problem.

When people prefer to debate the best bachelor or best contestant on X Factor to debating our nation’s future, our children’s future and our grand children’s future – well you’ve got it: we have a problem.

When our news is censored and we have to delve in to the Internet to find out what is happening in the world and in our own country, dare I say it? We have a problem.

The one thing that sets Australia apart from almost any other nation on earth is the Aussie spirit. It can be seen as a she’ll be right mate attitude that suggests apathy; or she’ll be right mate because we will take care of it.

I went and saw Bridge of Lies yesterday and it is well worth the watch.

The Berlin Wall was put up to separate two different political views. It was a physical wall. Today, we have a wall being built in Australia. It is not made of bricks and mortar. It is made of censorship, political correctness and insidious manipulation through media control, Acts of Parliament and social media trolls. There is no razor wire, no watch towers. Just the ability to call someone a racist.

I am reminded of the words in the old childhood saying: Sticks and stones may break my bones but names will never hurt me. Well, today, apparently words can hurt you, but only if you live on the side of the wall that our government and politicians have decided is the “right” side of the wall.

No longer are people in Australia even able to scale a wall. Bullets are not needed. To shoot us down, all that is needed is to call us racists or bigots. Or worse.

I am hoping that the Aussie “She’ll be right mate” translates to “don’t worry, we will take care of it” and rise up and say that this is our country.

Many of us came from convict backgrounds, sent in to exile for stealing a coat or a loaf of bread or a silver spoon.

Some came for murder and robbery or prostitution. Tough people.

Many came from China to work on the gold fields.

Some came from Italy to work on the Snowy Mountain scheme.

Many of us came to Australia as ‘ten pound poms.’

Some came from Hungary during the revolution.

Some came from Vietnam during the Vietnam war.

But they all came for a chance to work and start a new life. And they worked hard.

The Greeks, Serbs, and Irish – so many more that it would be impossible to name.

There were no hand-outs – no privileges offered.

These people were given a chance to start a new life, in Australia, to become Australians.

And Australians they became.

They learned English and embraced our country while offering the gift of their skills, food and culture and music.

We accepted that gift and sat together at the same table and laughed and drank their wine, ate their food, danced to their music and married and loved their people. As they did us.

I have spoken with friends from Hungarian, Italian, etc., backgrounds and while they embrace and celebrate their roots, they consider themselves Australian.

The common denominator with this terrible situation that we find ourselves in is that our current immigrant population do not want to embrace our culture. They want to destroy it.

They do not want to learn our language. They want to annihilate it.

They do not want to work. They want us to work for them.

Friends, this is not a refugee crisis. This is a self imposed Australian crisis. I fear that it will be too late if something does not happen while we still have enough Aussies left.

Those Brochures!

Those Brochures.

Here they are! For all to see and read!

Spot the deplorable, despicable, bigoted, racist, anti-treaty bits – if you can!

If anyone can point out any parts of those brochures which contain “disgraceful, despicable, racist bigotry or nasty, racist drivel,” then 1Law4All will give Peter Dunne a one year’s free 1Law4All Party membership.

Palmistry and Sleight-of-Hand

Palmistry and Sleight-of-Hand

It wasn’t that long ago that NZ citizens voted against a Constitution. Especially a race-based one. But arch-racist Sir Geoffrey Palmer doesn’t like democracy, so he’s trying to sabotage that important plebiscite. He has co-authored a book that tries – yet again – to make the case for a Treaty of Waitangi-based Constitution.

He just might be coming to a library near you, where, for a paltry $10, you can hear the same old racist codswallop – all over again. But keep this in mind.

Does Palmer want to rule New Zealand?

In a Constitutional Republic, judges can overrule the decisions of the people’s democratically elected representatives, in parliament.

And Judges are picked from the ranks of lawyers.

And Palmer is a lawyer.

Nuff said?

Read some of his scary stuff, here. Although Palmer seems quite disinterested in democracy, there is an option to make a submission on that page – if you can be bothered.

Palmer was the main architect of the mythical “treaty principles” as well as the Waitangi Tribunal legislation and all the hearsay claims and other dubious re-writing-of-history-to-get-the-money claptrap that it runs on.

CONstitutionally, he’s tried it all before. See here.

In 1985 Geoffrey Palmer, the attorney general and minister of justice, was the prime mover behind a white paper proposing a Bill of Rights as supreme law for New Zealand. The proposed Bill of Rights would have given judges the power to overturn laws that were seen to be inconsistent with the rights guaranteed in the bill. It would also have given legal recognition to Māori rights under the Treaty of Waitangi.

The proposals were strongly attacked from a number of corners. Some argued that to give judges the power to strike out laws and determine the nature of human rights would undermine the power of the democratically elected Parliament.

Parliament’s Ohariu Harlot Blows His Trumpet

Parliament’s Ohariu Harlot Blows His Trumpet

Peter Dunne appalled by ‘racist’ propaganda delivered to Wellington homes

9 March 2017

Racism is a Dunne deal as yet another pro-racist privilege supporter states his position loud and clear. To hell with equality and democracy, I hear. As has oft been repeated: why don’t the media ask such poufs the obvious question: can you please explain how seeking equality for all NZ citizens is racist?

Rumours that United Future is be re-badged as Apartheid Future are unfounded, it seems.

From the dompost. (Or should that be compost?)

Leaflets distributed around Wellington’s northern suburbs are full of disgraceful, despicable racist bigotry, and should be thrown in the bin, MP Peter Dunne says. On the pamphlet the group states contributions can be made to an Orewa bank account, and claim further information can be found in books such as One Treaty, One Nation – a recent publication from Tross Publishing, and written by Hugh Barr, Don Brash, and others.

Don Brash said on Thursday night that he had not heard of the Rolling Thunder campaign, and it had nothing to do with the Hobson’s Pledge Trust. I do, of course, strongly favour New Zealand’s being a colour-blind society, where all citizens have the same constitutional status, he said.


To see what all the fuss is about, copies of those brochures can be seen, here.


10 March 2017

And here he goes again. Newshub (TV3) ran the Media Release likely put out by anti-United [Apartheid] Future. If in doubt, fudge it out! The picture caption goes:

The Ohariu MP says two anti-Treaty pamphlets have been dropped into letterboxes in his electorate.

Two lies in one. Neither the authors of One Treaty One Nation, nor 1Law4All are anti-Treaty. The Maori-language Treaty signed at Waitangi in 1840, that is. Of course, the latter-day tainted, wishful-thinking concoctions are a different matter, altogether.

Maori Statutory Board given arse card by High Court

Maori Statutory Board given arse card by High Court

 

Good news, the Maori Statutory Board has been told to sling their hook by the High Court.

A bid to protect Auckland’s Maori cultural sites has been thrown out in the High Court due to a lack of evidence as to their importance.

The Independent Maori Statutory Board appealed a decision by Auckland Council to remove provisions relating to sites of value for mana whenua from the Unitary Plan.

However, in a ruling released to the public on Tuesday, Justice Edwin Wylie rejected the appeal, saying there wasn’t enough evidence of the sites’ significance.

Complete mumbo-jumbo in other words.

The board, comprising seven mana whenua group representatives and two mataawaka representatives, sought to incorporate sites of value to mana whenua in an overlay in the unitary plan.

In September 2012, a working draft of the proposed unitary plan was released to iwi authorities, which proposed two levels of protection for sites and places of Maori cultural heritage.

Included in the draft was a schedule detailing 61 sites and places of significance to Maori, and a cultural heritage layer which would cover about 2231 public and private sites.

That was whittled down from about 9000 different sites through consultation with public and mana whenua groups in September 2013.

The Auckland Unitary Plan Independent Hearings Panel (IHP) recommended Auckland Council delete a number of provisions affecting Maori from the proposed unitary plan, including the schedule of sites of value to mana whenua which was to be included in the district and regional plan section, until evidence of their significance had been established.

Justice Wylie found that of the 2213 sites proposed, only 140 had specific submissions and evidence provided from mana whenua, and only 16 were supported by detailed evidence at the hearing.

He said, having heard evidence from a large number of parties both for and against the overlay of sites, the panel was entitled to delete the overlay of sites from the proposed plan.

Without evidence of mana whenua values to support all sites, the provisions lacked sufficient evidence overall, Justice Wylie ruled.

Knock me down with a feather, Justice Wylie got one right for once.
