No, Jacinda – we are not Aotearoa.

To all National Party members:

An excellent letter (read from the bottom up) has raised questions to which by now the majority of New Zealanders want answers.

What are you going to do about the fact that:
 a) Jacinda Ardern, all her government departments   and our disgracefully bribed mainstream media are trying  to force a name-change on this country, without any consultation whatsoever with New Zealanders.

 Ardern was using  the inauthentic Aotearoa when she was recently Hollywooding  overseas.

But none of you have publicly challenged her?

b) Is this party going to face up to this issue,  and publicly tackle her about trying to change our name – which a succession of polls has shown that New Zealanders overwhelmingly reject?

c)  Does National and its also apparently autocratic leader, Chris Luxon, intend to challenge the government about the renaming of all our government institutions in supposed Maori so that what they actually do has become incomprehensible to most New Zealanders?

The majority are utterly fed up with this – but National are well and truly letting us down.

d)  Does this party intend to tackle these challenges of, basically,  an assertion of  Maori superiority which many New Zealanders are now finding culturally offensive?

I would like an answer to these questions – as would so many other New Zealanders.

As sent – see the attachment below as I received it.-

“Look at Waiwere Falls notice first. Then you will understand where this guy is coming from.

 “Foreign language Safety notice

“This is a disgrace to all New Zealanders. Talk about give the Maori an inch and they take mile, goes without saying.”

(Please note – this is not the fault of the majority  of part-Maori descent, but of the small minority of activist extremists whom Ardern is obviously encouraging. It will continue  until enough New Zealanders strongly and publicly object -including t our local city councils across the country, prioritizing all greetings in Maori, rather than English.  Amy Brooke. )

       ” HI.  FYI. 

        My son was hiking in the Waiwere Falls region between Te Aroha and 
Matamata yesterday. 

        The following letter that he has sent is self-explanatory and worthy 
of taking your time to read. If ever you had any doubts about the apartheid 
intentions of the current government, read on and take the time to open the 
attached photo. 

        To me, this “Maori language-only” safety warning is a step too far! 

        Dear Sirs  

        A) DOC Relations manager 

        b) Worksafe NZ relations and safety manager 

        c) MP For Hauraki region N Mahuta 

        d) Coromandel MP  S Simpson 

 cc Casey Costello – NZ Ratepayers association 

 Bcc- “Various stakeholders” 

  Regarding an urgency sign at Waiwere Falls on the 2nd July 2022 

        As a matter of urgency could the issue of safety notices for public 
understanding posted at the start of major national hiking trail(s) be 
reviewed and then come back with a clear explanation to the following 
questions at your earliest (regarding the attached image)- 

         Could you please – 

        1) explain/translate what the following attached caution sign is 

        2) Explain why it is solely presented in a foreign format (no other 
language version was presented at, on or in the surrounds) 

        3) Why isn`t an appropriate English sign, and if required for track 
users, Hindi, Chinese, Korean, Samoan, Fijian, Japanese, etc. translations 
be provided? 

        4) Remind me who is paying for these signs 

        5) What action Worksafe NZ will be taking to stop this deliberate 
exclusion of people to safety information 

        5) When this issue will be permanently resolved by DOC as 
presumably, it is a matter of urgent safety to visitors? 

        6) What the local and neighbouring MP has to say about this 

 A concerned NZ-born, tax-paying Citizen, who would like to 
understand if they are in danger on national trails, in their own country, 
who speaks the predominant, national, English language only.

 Let’s leave the word “aotearoa back in Stephenson Percy Smith’s 
story book where it belongs. 
There has only ever been one name that encompassed all the land mass, 
foreshore and seabed that today is known as New Zealand – and that is “New 
The name of our fabulous country has been known as New Zealand for 379 years 
 The word “aotearoa” has only been around for 130 years.  An Englishman, 
Stephenson Percy Smith made it up for his fictional story about Kupe and wanted a

maori sounding word that he could use to name this land in his story. 
The maori were tribal orientated, so collectively, they never ever had a 
name that encompassed all the land mass and seabed that is currently known 
as “New Zealand”. 
Secondly, maori never ever heard the word aotearoa until sometime after 1890 

So, New Zealanders …

Be proud!

        Stand up!         

 Speak up!   
 Keep “New Zealand” as the only name of our beautiful country where many 
cultures and races live. 
and …Leave the word “aotearoa” back in Stephenson Percy Smith’s story 
book where it belongs 

 This issue needs to be addressed: If you agree with what you have read, 
please, please forward it on to family, friends, colleagues etc.

Spread the word …”


Please oppose Jacinda Ardern’s fascist move to rename our country – and forward this important petition. Thank you:)

New Zealand, NOT Aotearoa

The official name of our nation, New Zealand, is a vital and important part of our nation’s collective history and culture. But our public servants, apparently under the instruction of Jacinda Ardern and Nanaia Mahuta, are now calling our nation Aotearoa or the ugly and clunky Aotearoa-New Zealand. Aotearoa is now used on official documents including our passports. This is an outrage. Such an important matter, the renaming of our nation, should only be made with our willing consent.

What you need to know:

  • Dutch explorer Abel Tasman named our islands New Zealand in 1642
    • Maori adopted this name, Nu Tirani, the name used in the Treaty of Waitangi
    • The name Aotearoa first appeared in writing as a Maori name for New Zealand in 1855
    • New Zealand, translated from the Dutch “new sea-land”, is a beautiful and appropriate name for our islands.
  • renaming our nation as Aotearoa or Aotearoa-New Zealand would be damaging to our international reputation and extremely expensive:
    • Aotearoa would baffle non-New Zealanders who would have no idea of what or where this new place is – this would remain a problem for decades
    • we have collectively spent hundreds of millions of dollars in creating our New Zealand brand, which would be destroyed if we became Aotearoa or Aotearoa-New Zealand
    • the six syllable Aotearoa is cumbersome and difficult for non-Maori speakers to pronounce – this cannot be easily overcome.

What you can do:

We must fight to preserve our cultural heritage: Jacinda Ardern and Nanaia Mahuta have no authority to change the name of our nation by stealth.

Please sign our petition below demanding that Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern publicly affirm New Zealand as the name of our country, and forward this petition to your friends, family and colleagues.

A majority of New Zealanders strongly oppose changing the name of our country – we must speak up.

Thank you,
on behalf of Hobson’s Pledge

Why are our MPs such patsies?

 The 100 Days – Claiming Back New

Given that we are a country in decline, it is time for our political party leaders to be told they are not born to rule, and need to recognize that individual members are adults and should be treated as such – to exercise their own judgment.

In fact we are well overdue to challenge our political parties in relation to the way they override individual MPs’ conscience votes. We would do far better to operate as the Tories do in Britain – where party dissent provides vigorous debate and a far more in-depth analysis of issues. For example, the recent challenges to Boris Johnson not only over party-gate, but over other issues of policy.

Meanwhile, Jacinda Arden is basking in photo opportunities overseas in relation to the signing of trade negotiations that were started well before her time in office, taking years to be settled – as each of the 27 member countries in the EU had to be reached and negotiated with separately. Moreover, the meat and dairy industries are very disappointed with the outcome of the free trade deal struck between New Zealand and the European Union, saying it falls far below their expectations. Some argue New Zealand should have walked away.

However,  one issue with which New Zealanders should be challenging Ardern is her constant referring to our country while she has been overseas as Aotearoa New Zealand. She has a nerve. She has not consulted with, nor been given permission by New Zealanders to change the internationally known name of this country. Nor was Aotearoa even the original Maori equivalent for our correct name.

Her behaviour is essentially fascist, with every government department now compromised, and our arguably corrupt mainstream media now touching its collective forelock, and substituting Aotearoa as well as unintelligible te reo terms for the language we all speak   – the most valued one in the world.

What has gone wrong with the rest of our parliamentarians? Who from Labour National, or ACT is objecting to this hijacking of our correct name? Why are questions not being asked in the House about what right Ardern has to hijack our country’s name, without consulting New Zealanders- who in fact have overwhelmingly rejected the use of Aotearoa…

 Not a squeak from Christopher Luxon,  who continues to disappoint with a lacklustre performance –  an undertaking to reverse The Three Waters power grab  but with apparently no comprehension that so many of the racist   provisions that both National and Labour  instituted over the years now need to be reversed. No country can succeed which divides its citizens along racial lines as a priority.                      

We have in fact an intellectually substandard political system when a determined leader such as a Helen Clark or a John Key can dominate and control party policy. This is far from healthy, and equally as bad is the mainstream media immediately pouncing on any signs that a party such as National, for example, may have members challenging its leadership, or openly debating or disagreeing on issues of policy. With its persistent mischief-making,  our media invariably try to promote this as an example of undesirable signs of instability within that particular party. It is in fact this is exactly what should be happening, that intelligent – and very often obviously far from genuinely intelligent   – men and women should come together to debate issues. To aim for a party to be controlled by its hierarchy is not only undesirable – it is an attack on free speech. Key was known to rule National, and caused a great deal of damage to the country. And while potential votes have been transferred from the Labour coalition –  so desperate are many New Zealanders to get rid of Ardern’s government – disappointment is now constantly voiced about the National leader’s substandard performance – and the way he is conducting himself. Luxon is apparently trying to run the National party as if he is the CEO of a corporation, with its members his employees. Moreover, equally disgraceful is the capitulation of grown men and women to being ordered about as if they are children – and unable to hold and defend their own intellectual positions.

Luxon’s pressure on Simon O’Connor to take down his sign of support for the US Supreme Court decision on Roe V Wade was viewed by many as essentially bullying. It was all very well to claim that O’Connor’s position  was not that of the National party. Nobody would have thought it was, so this was irrelevant. Nor was it to Simon O’Connor’s credit, after recently hollywooding on the importance of free speech, that he caved in and he did what he was told, essentially disappointing those who expect better things from him.

Where are the National party members with a spine? Ironically, too, while Luxon was busy virtue-signalling by “empathising” with the distress of those women who would no longer be able, as a constitutional right (which of course it never was) to have put to death an unborn son, or daughter, ACT’s pro-death David Seymour and Jacinda Ardern’s mouthpiece, Clarke Gayford, were only too anxious to slam this important pro-life decision – with Gayford’s wonderfully original, “That’s one small step for supreme court justices. One giant leap backwards for womankind.”

The greatest number of deaths now worldwide are from abortion, estimated at 73 million annually,  while many Western countries are now dangerously below the level at which the birthrate needs to be maintained to keep a country economically viable .

It will be not enough to see the this disastrous Labour coalition thrown  out next election if National, under the inappropriately dominating and under-performing Luxon,  can’t pull up its socks and produce a better more comprehensive set of policies to attack this racist malaise which is  an affliction on us all, both part-Maori and the majority of New Zealanders. It is failing too, intellectually, by endorsing the complete untruth of a climate change emergency which is serving Ardern so well.

And while Christopher Luxon is bragging about learning this now largely artificial language,  te reo – (why would one bother?) he may be interested in James Allan’s recent Spectator column summarizing his shock at what he encountered when returning recently to New Zealand – and the attack on English, and on our country, spearheaded by Ardern.  – New Zealand’s spiral downwards into irrationality.

It is well worth supporting The Australian Spectator for a far more comprehensive overview of what is happening  in, and to, this country we are losing.

The silence of our MSM is deafening…
