Letter to Members


Dear Members and other interested parties.

 

Shortly you will see a new political party called, “The One New Zealand Party”.  While your committee opposed this name, this new party agreed to make Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840 its main platform when dealing with Treaty of Waitangi issues.  This Party has no association with the ONZF, but we wish them well if they honour their commitment to promote Queen Victoria’s Royal Charters/Letters Patent.

 

It’s a concern when virtually all other parties and organisations refuse to recognise Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840 as the documents that made New Zealand into a British Colony with its own Governor and Constitution that set up our political, legal and justice systems. These documents were issued by, “Victoria by the Grace of God under the Great Seal of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland”. In fact, one man that was a Crown researcher for the Waitangi Tribunal called me a “disgusting bastard” when questioned why he had not mentioned or used Queen Victoria’s Royal Charters when investigating and reporting on Treaty of Waitangi claims.

 

The people and organisations who continue to support the Treaty of Waitangi as our founding document are traitors to their fellow New Zealanders. They give recognition to a document that was never intended to be our founding document when it was signed by over 500 tangata Maori chiefs and Lt. Governor Hobson in 1840.

 

While the Treaty of Waitangi cleared up any misunderstandings by Lord Normanby on British sovereignty over New Zealand when he gave his instructions to Captain Hobson, it did make tangata Maori British subjects, “With the same rights as the people of England, if they gave up their kawanatanga/governments to the Queen”. It also explained to tangata Maori the Queen would guarantee to them, “Their lands, settlements and property, the same as, all the people living in New Zealand”, but the Treaty of Waitangi did notmake New Zealand a British Colony with a Governor and Constitution to set up our political, legal and justice systems under one flag and one law.

 

Many people/organisations have asked me to remove their names from our email list or no longer reply to my emails. They are the problem, they continue to recognise the Treaty of Waitangi as our Founding Document. It was not!

 

The One New Zealand Foundation Inc has extensively researched Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840 and found they were the documents that made New Zealand into a British Colony with its own Governor and Constitution that set up our political, legal and justice systems; Our true Founding Documents and first Constitution, but the government does not want the public to know and went to the extent of dismantling the Constitution Room at Archives New Zealand and filing/hiding Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840 in Archive’s Repository where they must be ordered to research, that is, if future researchers know they exist.

 

While this is bad enough, government also spent $7.2 million dollars of taxpayer’s money to refurbish the National Library in Wellington to house three documents in the new He Tohuexhibit, stating they are, “Iconic constitutional documents that shaped Aotearoa New Zealand”.The three documents are,

 

  1. The Declaration of Independencewas a failed attempt by James Busby to get tangata Maori sovereignty recognised over New Zealand, but tangata Maori were more interested in fighting than political co-operation.
  2. The Treaty of Waitangionly made tangata Maori into, “British subjects with the same rights as the people of England if they gave up their kawanatanga/governments to the Queen”. No more, no less.
  3. The Women’s Suffrage Petition. While the Women’s Suffrage petition was a great achievement for women worldwide, it was not a constitutional document that shaped New Zealand. It allowed women to vote on matters affecting our political, legal and justice systems that Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letter Patent/Constitution dated the 16 November 1840 had set up on the 3 May 1841.

In 1877 Chief Justice Sir James Prendergast had rule the Treaty of Waitangi, “A simple nullity”, which the Ministry of Justice stated has never been over-ruled. During the claims by Maori in the 1930’s and 40’s the Treaty of Waitangi was never mentioned, they were heard and settled by the courts where all could participate, but since the introduction of the 1975 Waitangi Tribunal Act and the Hon Geoffrey Palmer’s, “Five Principles for Crown Action on the Treaty of Waitangi”, the Waitangi Tribunal bases all its claims on its interpretation of the Treaty of Waitangi.

The Treaty of Waitangi only gave tangata Maori, “The same rights as the people of England”, but since the 1975 Treaty of Waitangi Act, this has completely changed; those that can claim a minute trace of tangata Maori ancestry can use the taxpayer funded apartheid Waitangi Tribunal to hear their claims without the right of non-Maori to participate or appeal a finding by the Tribunal, which in most cases, are approved by Parliament without question.

 

It would be very difficult for government to now recognise Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840 that set up our political, legal and justice systems since it has completely ignored it when it enacted the 1975 Treaty of Waitangi Act that created the Waitangi Tribunal. Most of the alleged Treaty of Waitangi claims that have cost the country billions of dollars would have failed if they were held under the justice system created by Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1840 as they did in the 1930’s and 40’s. The alleged Te Roroa Wai 38 claim a shining example as it was rejected by Chief Judge Shepherd and Parliament in 1942 but recommended by the Waitangi Tribunal in 1992 and settled by Parliament a few years later.

 

We now have two options,

 

  1. Ignore Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840, as the majority of people and organisations are doing and let the Waitangi Tribunal use a document that only gave tangata Maori, “The same rights as the people of Englandto allow part-Maori to steal our country from under our noses.                                                                                                                                                           OR,
  2. Force the Government to honour Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840 that set up our political, legal and justice systems under one flag and one law, irrespective of race, colour or creed and place it in the He Tohuexhibit, “As our true Founding Document and first Constitution that shaped New Zealand”. The Declaration of Independence and the Treaty of Waitangi renamed as, “The documents that made tangata MaoriBritish subjects with the same rights as the people of England.        

 

The One New Zealand Foundation Inc. can only do so much. We have brought extensive research to the public’s attention to show Queen Victoria’s Royal Charter/Letters Patent of 1839 and 1840 were our true Founding Documents and first Constitution that made New Zealand into a British Colony with a Governor and Constitution that set up our political, legal and justice systems under one flag and one law, irrespective of race colour or creed.

USE IT OR LOSE IT, THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
