The_Kingite_Rebellion_420_x_606.jpgThe Kingite Rebellion

John Robinson

The arrival of British rule in New Zealand in the wake of the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840 did not immediately spread throughout the country as qualified manpower was scarce. Some Maori in the Waikato were dissatisfied that lawlessness still prevailed in the back areas and so the idea of having their own "king" and government was floated. Not all Maori - not even in the Waikato - accepted the idea.

Once We Were One: the Fraud of Modern Separatism

Andy Oakley

In this book Andy Oakley, the author of "Cannons Creek to Waitangi", exposes the fraud of the New Zealand government in the 21st century continuing to transfer wealth, rights and public resources from the general public into the hands of a small tribal elite composed of people who have more European blood in them than Maori. Some of them are more than 96% European and yet they continue to receive race based privileges and special funding not available to others.

Having grown up in the low income suburb of Cannons Creek, near Wellington, the author has strong views about this continuing enrichment of a small elite on a purely racial basis while those in real need - both Maori and European - are missing out.

One_Treaty_One_Nation.jpgOne Treaty, One Nation


Hugh Barr, Don Brash, Mike Butler, Reuben Chapple, Peter Cresswell, Bruce Moon, John Robinson and David Round

175 years ago our forebears brought forth a new nation, conceived in trust and dedicated to the proposition that all New Zealanders would be one people, living under the same law. But for the last 40 years we have been under relentless pressure to divide the country into two groups - iwi and the rest of us.

Back in 1975 Waitangi Day and the Treaty of Waitangi Act were set up to foster a sense of nationhood and a greater awareness of the Treaty as a symbol that embraces us all. What we got instead was years of protest and vitriol while billions of dollars have been taken from everyone and handed over to private tribal trusts.

Twisting_the_Treaty.jpgTwisting the Treaty

John Robinson, Bruce Moon, David Round, Mike Butler, Hugh Barr, Peter Cresswell

This is probably the most important book published in recent times as it shows how in 27 years the Treaty of Waitangi has been reinterpreted, the "partnership" myth created, tribal corporations set up, public assets transferred to those corporations which are now on the brink of securing a special place in a new, treaty based, written constitution.

Canons Creek to Waitangi

Andy Oakley

In this book Andy Oakley, who was brought up in the Wellington suburb of Cannons Creek, questions the logic of giving ever greater taxpayer handouts on a racial basis to an already wealthy tribal elite instead of making these "Treaty billions"available to all New Zealanders on the basis of need.

He exposes the Waitangi Tribunal as a racist fraud and shows that, at the time of signing the Treaty of Waitangi in 1840, there was no such thing as a "Maori race"- only various nations/tribes that were constantly at war with each other.
