With the Maori seats now leading to the undermining of equal rights and the Rule of Law - in violation of Section 19(1) of our New Zealand Bill of Rights that guarantees all New Zealanders freedom from discrimination based on race - surely it’s time they were removed so New Zealand can once again become a country of equals.
A kind interpretation of Jacinda Ardern’s tenure is that she was naive and impressionable, and those weaknesses were manipulated, especially by the Maori caucus to advance their agenda for Maori rule. Other interpretations are much less kind.
It is unsurprising that the public objects to enforced racial categorisation. And that’s the bottom line - Kiwis want to be treated as equals, united as one people under one flag. New Zealand is one nation - a country of equal citizens, not a collection of competing tribes.
This toxic situation, where democracy is being replaced with ‘apartheid’ must be unwound. Turning New Zealand into a “colourblind society”, where our team of 5 million Kiwis are all equal under the law, is surely the only way to build a strong and united future.
On behalf of the New Zealand Centre for Political Research I would like to say a huge thank you for your on-going interest and wonderful support over the last 12 months - and wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year!

Has political pressure to achieve the PM’s vaccination goals led to widespread coercion – resulting in New Zealanders not being adequately informed about vaccine risks?
