From two typically generous Australians – in contrast  to our literary mafia

From two  typically generous Australians – the contrast to our literary mafia in this country?

https://ncc.org.au/newsweekly/music-cinema-books/problems-across-the-tasman-similar-to-our-own/

So-called ordinary New Zealanders are basically decent, generous people, but our literary bully-boys and- girls in this small country where well-heeled pressure groups rule the roost are really quite vicious. And as poor Charlotte Dawson found to her cost, the small world of self-regarding  media “celebrities” has also become so indoctrinated in left-wing propaganda that –  in spite of Stuff newspaper’s ludicrous claims –  fair, objective reporting and competent analysis of the issues facing us today is largely non-existent in our mainstream media.

With my enthusiastically received books for children long blacklisted by the rabid Left (as told to my distributor) because my then Dominion columns  expressed considerable concern about the takeover of education – and the exaggeration of so many treaty claims –  my timely title – The “100 Days – Claiming Back New Zealand…what has gone wrong and how we can control our politicians”  was of course boycotted by reviewers.   ( I can think of one highly antagonistic and competitive left-wing writer of basically chick-lit, who has managed to publish a list of all the children’s writers in this country, well, not quite all…This,  in spite of “The Mora Stone” being  included in the Children’s Literature Foundation of New Zealand nominations for the top ten Notable Senior Fiction in its year and in the initial list of nominees for the prestigious international Fantasy Award for Children’s Literature in the US Mythopoeic Awards for Children’s Literature. It was listed on a Yahoo site by another reviewer.as one of her top five all-time historical fantasies.

However, the Left apparently just don’t happen to keep up with things…especially when their ideology is challenged…

I can think of a handful of really fine New Zealanders indefatigably fighting to win this country back from its basically Marxist takeover of all our institutions. Among those contributing to the latter is Jacinda Ardern, with her radicalized, socialist determination to inflict her own extremist agenda on what was once a  far happier country. Her wish to basically make it easier to have more babies killed before birth also has Miss Ardern quite shockingly voting against allowing  doctors to supply medical help to any aborted child left to die – which goes against  the grain,  as far as New Zealanders are concerned.

And what about Ardern’s push  to have highly worrying euthanasia legislation inflicted on the country? Or her party’s  favoring of the opening of Pandora’s box with “liberal” legislation promoting the increasing use of  recreational cannabis (because, of course, this is what it will do – with all its detrimental effects on health and safety). Again, this is typical of so many of the shortfalls in thinking of  those pushing their own barrow…

Where is there any acknowledgement from this apparently ignorant government of the fact that Sweden decriminalized cannabis use in the 60s, but after 20 years, made it illegal again, in the 80s? 

For no  reason at all?

Why do our politicians never learn? Why was John Key’s government foolish enough to allow a (former?) Communist spymaster  to be given a list ranking as a national MP –  and even to refuse to expel him when they learned that he had concealed this (i.e. basically falsified) in  his CV). What has been behind the National Party’s too cosy cuddling up to Communist Chinese business interests in this country – to the detriment of New Zealanders as a whole? Yet there have long been warnings of China’s determination to infiltrate and dominate the West, buying up land, businesses  and strategic assets, and influencing governments’ policies by whatever means possible, including spying.  Key himself is on record as praising the leadership of Xi Jinping,  tyrannically presiding over a country where the punishing, imprisoning and torturing of citizens  – including, horrifically, removing the vital organs of dissidents while alive to sell to those seeking transplants  – has become part of  a pattern of horror being woven all over this unfortunate country.

It is good, therefore,  to see the rise of the New Conservative Party with new faces and policies which will resonate with majority New Zealanders, particularly those respecting the foundation values on which this  country was built. Given the decline in New Zealand First’s following, in particular on Winston Peter’s ill-advised, last-minute and unheralded support for the UN’s global migration pact – never  put to the country to ratify  –  the New Conservatives are in a strong position to cross the 5% threshold, particularly given growing recognition of the Green Party’s policies as extremist, basically anti-productive and destructive to the prosperity of this country.

It was interesting then, to read this generous Australian review of my  100 Days,  Claiming Back New Zealand…. book, focusing on the one vital provision that the clever Swiss people wrested from their own government to ensure that it is the people themselves – referred to as “sovereign”  – who are able to make the decisions concerning the future of their own country – rather than the politicians.

Two fine writers are involved here – Paul Collits – who tells of his own experiences while living and working in New Zealand –  and Peter Kelleher, editor of the excellent Australian News Weekly, supplying the kind of incisive commentary and analysis of events in this part of the world which is very much lacking in New Zealand. For this  reason alone, New Weekly deserves the support of more New Zealanders. https://ncc.org.au/newsweekly/ 

Why is it than in this country we produce nothing now to fill the gap left by Ian Wishart’s INVESTIGATE – when our neighbours can produce other fine Australia publications such as the UK/Australian Spectator, edited by Rowan Dean, with articles from exceptional writers such as Giles Auty, James Allan, and others – as well as Quadrant and the IPA Review?

With some wonderful exceptions, I have routinely found Australians  on the whole, far more generous than Kiwis writing in these and other areas. And our annual Summer Sounds Symposium was fortunate enough to attract many fine speakers from across the Tasman – including the late Hal Colebatch, Keith Windschuttle, David Greagg (Wizard Dafydd), Patrick Morgan, Warren Reed (with his prescient, 1995 book about Chinese Spying activities, treachery and secrecy already within Australian bureaucracies),   Joseph Poprzeczny, John Ballantyne, Peter Westmore, Paul Monk, David Flint and others making outstanding contributions.

The long-term outcome of these symposia was the thinking that underpins both the book reviewed here by Paul Collits,  and our movement to claim back this country  – www.100days.co.nz and  on Facebook’s https://www.facebook.com/100daystodemocracy?ref=br_tf

We need the knowledge of what as actually been happening  to reach more New Zealanders, long deprived of anything approaching a quality education in our dumbed-down state schools, where, as part of the whole Marxist agenda,  even the teaching of real history has been withdrawn, replaced with its reinvention by activists. And part of their agenda is their stealth movement to rename this country.

They will win – if not enough New Zealanders care enough to fight back. And we should remember that everything, ultimately, depends upon the individual…

“ethnic favouritism”, although colour-conscious programs are polarising…

CASSANDRA’S LEGACY: WE HAVE LEARNT NOTHING FROM 1995

FOREIGN AFFAIRS

by Amy Brooke

As Bertrand Russell once commented, pragmatism is like a bath full of warm water heating up so imperceptibly you don’t know at which point to start screaming.

However, in embracing pragmatism, New Zealand’s political parties, including Labour and National, have abandoned a vital principle of government: even-handedness. Reacting to continual pressures, successive governments have parted company with New Zealanders as a whole, outmanoeuvred and intimidated by radicalised activists. Not only is their agenda prioritised: law and order are no longer adequately maintained.

In 1995, an article in The Economist described New Zealand as having embarked on “ethnic favouritism”, although colour-conscious programs are polarising, promoting disaffection and resentment. Yet, a succession of part-Maori activists, programmed into a deliberately nurtured grievance culture in Marxist indoctrination camps overseas, set to, spreading disaffection among their vulnerable young.

The result has been that not only young part-Maori but the country itself, including our MPs, have been sold an orchestrated litany of lies.

WAITANGI MISINTERPRETATIONS

The deliberate promotion of fanciful misinterpretations of a long-ago Treaty of Waitangi is having tragic results. The ongoing attack on the nearly 200-year-old treaty – which unmistakably established equal rights for all, both earlier Maori immigrants to this country and the later colonists – has been deliberate. Its provisions granted to the Maori tribes important legal title to their lands held at the time – with protection against predatory buyers – and for their material possessions – their taonga.

However, the word “taonga” was stretched by the flagrantly partisan Waitangi Tribunal, described by respected media commentator Brian Priestley as “a Star Chamber”, to include pre-European, Maori ownership of airways, radio frequencies, rivers, coastal foreshores and sea beds – ludicrous claims nevertheless to some extent favoured by our governments, always with their eye on the Maori vote.

It would be hard to find today an agreement whose meaning is more inexcusably misinterpreted as a “living document”, constantly reinvented to contrive even more advantages for a small minority of part-Maori extremists. On the basis of, in many cases, a tiny percentage of Maori genetic inheritance, they conveniently overlook their far larger European ancestry while promoting resentment against colonialism and ignoring its enormous benefits.

So opportunistic have been many of the claims, that even Maori Judge Eddie Durie, long-time chairman of the Waitangi Tribunal, cautioned tribal hierarchies against withholding payment from researchers if they did not agree to suppress information querying such claims. One brave historian, in a subsequent book, confessed to removing relevant material that undermined a tribe’s claim: he was refused payment otherwise.

COUNTER-CULTURAL RESENTMENT

What is happening in New Zealand is, as elsewhere, the deliberate corruption of democracy. Destabilising activism produces a counter-culture of resentment. Preferential treatment – and the never-ending raiding of taxpayers’ pockets by well-lawyered revisionist extremists – is white-anting our once far more peaceful country.

Moreover, resentment at a prevalent bias easily slides into anger. New Zealand’s now ongoing ethnic and cultural grandstanding, for financial and political ends, ensures funding for separate institutions and provisions that our MPs effectively endorse, ensuring a basic divisiveness. The Economist well argued in 1995 that, “to the wellspring of the principle that separates church from state, another should be added. That is, the separation of race and state.”

The lesson governments should have learned from history is that appeasement does not work. In dealing with a bottomless well of inherited and induced grievances, we face not so much social but spiritual problems: of rage, hubris, envy; resentments so deep that the conflagration, inflamed by unreal expectations, cannot be contained.

If there is a need to be meet, it should be met, regardless of race. Suggestions that taxpayers should continue to fund Maori-only cultural organisations are untenable.

Thanks in part to a majority compelled to pay for never-ending claims, the Maori economy is estimated at $40 billion. So, the ongoing requirement to fund Maori television and other special benefits is inexcusable. The tribes are well able to pay for these themselves. Especially given that wealthy neo-tribal corporations devoted to self-interest pay no tax, claiming charitable exemptions.

We are slow learners in this country. The Economist quotation I recently rediscovered from 25 years ago, its findings reported in a 1995 column I wrote for The Dominion, our capital-city newspaper. What were then facts remain facts, though the situation today is even worse. The promise that all multimillion-dollar tribal claims against the government (meaning, all other New Zealanders) would be settled decades ago has long been abandoned, and the treaty gravy train rolls on, and our culpable politicians are not facing the issues.

Cassandra’s legacy is apparently part of the human condition – especially in relation to the obtuseness of our hierarchies. Due to their long inaction, the flight from reality and reason – fanned throughout Western democracies by this same grievance mentality – has also gained ground here, spreading malice, mischief and misinformation throughout what was once called the Paradise of the Pacific.

Tross Publishing- those New Zealanders redeeming our times

Tross Publishing – we owe those New Zealanders redeeming our times

https://trosspublishing.co.nz/ 

I have felt guilty for some time about being unable to do justice to the excellent, highly  relevant books which John McLean, publisher of Tross Books, manages to produce, putting our largely leftwing, mainstream publishers to shame. His tireless campaign has embraced publishing well-researched writers addressing to the truth of issues about the actual facts, rather than media and government-supported propaganda,  in relation to the history of this country.

This is vital knowledge, given the long taken-over of our educational institutions – including the Ministry of Education – by those who initially openly boasted about being neo-Marxists when I reviewed their books for the Christchurch Press in the 1980s onwards.  However, they have long tunnelled underground, while we New Zealanders have been cushioned by our geographical isolation from the constant threat of invasion, both external and now internal, that Britain and European countries have had to face throughout the centuries. This,  and that the fact that the teaching of history has been so long deliberately withheld from the school curriculum by this same ministry,  means that New Zealanders as a whole are largely ignorant and complacent about the threat that communism, and indeed socialism,  poses to any democratic country. The silly rebuttal to those writing to raise awareness of the white-anting of this country was often that they were imagining “Reds under the beds” – a clever move from the far Left, as ridicule is a strong weapon when attacking those trying to urgently bring home the truth of issues.

However, I also remember the riposte given by a Catholic trade union leader, well aware of the infiltration taking place, to the effect that it wasn’t just a case of  “Reds under the beds” – but that  they were actually sitting up in bed and having breakfast brought in. Metaphorically speaking, he was right.

Since the demise of INVESTIGATE  magazine, produced by  Ian Wishart, we have had no contemporary journal providing much-needed analysis of the relentless attack with which we are undoubtedly faced. We owe Ian a great deal for providing highly relevant, contemporary analysis of just what was, and is, happening in this country and abroad – including the mischief-making and venality of those whose political agenda has been very much against preserving New Zealand as a democracy. This of course includes the parliamentarians signed up to handing over our independence to a One World Government movement, aiming for an over- governing body with its own army to keep dissident nations in check. Like ours?

While Australia has the excellent The Spectator, News Weekly, Quadrant and The IPA Review, New Zealand now has no important  and relevant journals – with the exception of ELocal, the community-based magazine producing worthwhile articles.

We therefore are very much indebted to John McLean of Tross Publishing who consistently publishes books bringing home to New Zealanders what is actually happening – and has been happening in this country – and the threats posed to us, again internally and externally.

A quick check of the  Tross Publishing website shows, in “Free Speech Under Attack”, how this deliberate move to exercise more and more control over all our lives,  the most fundamental tenet of any democracy, is being used as a weapon against us all.   In “The Jaws of the Dragon” and “China, Lied, Thousands Died”: The origins and spread of Covid-19”, Ron Usher examines the very real threat  China poses to the free world, about which our politicians have either inexcusably  slow to recognise – or culpably ignorant…or worse.

And what of the fact that New Zealand inexcusably keeps dropping the deadly poison 1080 – with its horrific effect on animals and birds indiscriminately dying as a result… while the government keeps remarkably quiet about the fact that it profits from its 90% ownership of the factories continuing to selling this product – with government ministers represented on the board! “The Quiet Forest: the case against Aerial 1080,” by Fiona M.F McQueen looks to be vital reading for those who have been assured of the safety of this product.

Another title that might well be read by every concerned New Zealander and by every politician is “24 Years; The trials of Allan Titford” detailing the extraordinary custodial sentence handed out to Allan Titford – a sentence greater than that given for  murder,   where parole is a possibility  after 10 years – or any other serious charge. This book examines the charges levelled against Titford, and the possible corruption involved. The extraordinary sentence handed out to this man, originally apparently as a result of what was private property being targeted with apparently opportunistic claims by local Maoris, shocked many, given conflicting evidence. 

With too many titles to list here, I can only recommend that readers themselves access  Tross Publishing where these and other such timely  books as Andy Oakley’s “Once We Were One: The Fraud of Modern Separatism”, One Treaty, One Nation” “Twisting  the Treaty” put paid to the propaganda, and indeed actual lies, now being told about the “Treaty of Waitangi.”  Like so many other treaties of the past, for the sake of the future of this country, and of the vital concept of one law for all – there’s a very good case for arguing it should also be consigned to the dustbins of history.

Jacinda – too self-willed for a democracy

Jacinda – too self-willed for a democracy

Arguably, Jacinda Ardern’s destructive and racist politics are unhealthy for New Zealand.

https://www.spectator.com.au/2020/05/covid-19-and-the-creeping-state/

When we have the over-authoritarian leader of any political party failing to realise that they are simply temporarily chairing a group of  loosely-united individuals — not there to rule the country — democracy flies out the window.

Stupid is as stupid does: Air New Zealand.

Stupid is as stupid does: Air New Zealand.

When a much travelled media friend said recently that Air New Zealand is well and truly outclassed by other competing airlines – Singapore Airlines, of course comes to mind, but he even mentioned Cathay Pacific as doing a much better job – I registered this just in passing. It’s been several years since I travelled overseas.

So a recent trip to Sydney on Air New Zealand’s Dreamliner was more like a bad dream. It wasn’t simply disappointing. The configuration of the plane in business class where a son and I travelled, for specific reason, was a shock. The seeming lack of intelligence which decided upon the placing of the seats was almost unbelievable.

Moreover, apparently other airlines which use the Dreamliner plane don’t use AIRNZ’s ridiculous configuration of the business/premium class cabin.

As one of those travellers who love to look to see where we are going…to watch the land unfold below and take in everything which gives us new horizons, I was incredulous to see the seating layout in this section of the plane. I’d hoped for a window seat to look down at it all.

And yes, my seat was by the window – but it was well turned away from the window so that essentially I and all others were travelling almost backwards – or at least facing so far in towards the middle of the cabin that the window was behind my right shoulder. Essentially I was travelling sideways with the side of the seat in front and the back of my own obstructing any possible view if I even twisted around to try to face the front and to look out.

No chance. The arrangement of this cabin was a basic herringbone with seats facing in, away from the window. The seats on the side of the aisles opposite, faced towards what should have been window seats. Nobody travelled facing forwards. And given that it was a herringbone configuration, all up the cabin, the privacy which so many value and prevents one being overlooked when sleeping was quite gone. Travellers virtually faced one another diagonally. This basically equated to less privacy then provided to economy class and economy upgrade, where passengers face forward. Unfortunately I couldn’t downgrade to economy premium, still allowing for more leg room, as all its places were taken.

I found the thinking behind preventing passengers facing forward or looking out the window simply simply incredible, and the cabin attendant to whom I expressed astonishment, and sheer disappointment said there had been quite a bit of criticism of the seating and there would possibly be a new configurations in future. Possibly? In future?

I am one of many who doesn’t like travelling backwards and can feel nauseous when this happens – as once on a train across France. Unlike the obliging Swiss, the perverse west to east French railway system (which also doesn’t believe in providing platform notices in English, the universal language – so I was grateful for what of the language I still retain )  simply reverses trains to go back the way they have come. I recall having to sit up sideways on the arm of my seat to turn to face forward to avoid becoming train sick.  As now, on the so called Dreamliner, knowing I would feel queasy very soon, I had to miss the lunch due, and to try to sleep instead.

Easier said than done. The arm rests on the Dreamliner are so far back one can’t actually rest one’s arms on them – as one of the cabin crew said she had also found. And although I could put my feet up on the square equivalent of a footstool, one couldn’t actually recline.  Unlike normal business class where flatbeds can be obtained without moving, on the Dreamliner apparently one has to get up and stand in the aisle while a flight attendant comes to turn the bed over – or whatever that requires. Not a plan designed by a mastermind, when one needs to keep one’s head still.

Moreover, given the layout, a man with a very loud voice coming to visit the passenger behind/beside me, and sitting on his  block  footstool, ended up booming into my ear when I tried to sleep. His head projected up over my seat site. After about 15 minutes when I asked him to speak more quietly as I was trying to sleep,  he was shocked – but a very large woman who had come to swell the numbers next door, was apparently affronted. So much for the chance to rest quietly.

Never mind, I was reassured, it’ll be a different plane with a different configuration on the return flight.  It wasn’t, to our disappointment and I looked with near anger at the prospect of another three hours in such a poorly designed premium cabin being offered by our flag-bearer airline. Not good enough – any more than the unevenness of the quality of attendant staff, particularly the grim looking elderly man, the cabin attendant sitting on the front seat facing passengers during takeoff and landing, who apparently couldn’t manage one pleasant expression. Nor did I see him doing anything at all useful during the whole flight. Other attendants were polite and helpful.

There are a lot of improvements Air New Zealand needs to make to its whole service which reflects badly on today’s management. Basic speech training for example, should be provided for all ground staff, including at Sydney airport, because so many of the announcements are gabbled too fast and are barely audible – which causes confusion. It’s quite simply almost impossible to work out what so many staff is saying – including some of the pilots. All staff need to be trained to talk slowly and clearly. Their speed-mumbling is inexcusable.

Air New Zealand’s domestic routes also need improvements made. Some cabin staff are excellent – but only some. The sheer professionalism and stylish look of cabin attendants is now largely gone – some looking overweight  and behaving over-casually.

The ramp which should help passengers off and on planes is still not automatically supplied and the steep plane steps are hazardous. Nor is there now, as was formerly the custom, a cabin crew member waiting outside at the bottom to help elderly passengers with a travel bag, or mothers with children and others needing a hand when disembarking.

On the flight north to Auckland which had been consistently delayed it took an unacceptable at least 15 minutes before disembarking was allowed – after the plane had landed and passengers were stuck in the aisles, having to stand for far too long. With far too long a wait before the ramp was brought around it was particularly stressful for passengers now running late and trying to link  with overseas flights. Moreover,  after I recounted this experience to a friend, she told me that passengers on her plane on a domestic flight to Auckland were forced to wait for 20 minutes,  cramped up uncomfortably while  standing in the aisles, and subjected to intermittent,  high-pitched whining which cabin crew couldn’t explain. Air New Zealand not only needs to communicate better, but to work far more professionally in bringing around the ramp for disembarking.

On the regional domestic flight I travelled on, return,  what seemed to be new seats were incredibly hard to sit on – tough,  unyielding material as if stretched over wood. The businessman sitting beside me said that it was pretty hard going, even for an hour And why is it apparently now more often the case that planes are sent the length of the country to regional airports which are known to be closed because of rain, fog or low ground cover – to then have to return all the way to Auckland because conditions have not improved – and were obviously not going to?

Our national airline, which could well remember that taxpayers had to bail it out some years ago,  has long been criticised for the high cost of its fares up and down the country. It’s so often commented that it is cheaper to fly to Australia than within the country. This is particularly so with its anti-family policy of ramping fares up at Christmas and holiday periods when families want to travel. How many families, for example, can afford to pay $2000 for a return trip for two adults and two children from Auckland to Nelson,  for example? Unfair is a phrase that springs to mind, although fairness isn’t a concept prioritised in business – nor can it very often be the case. But this antifamily anti-family policy of Air New Zealand is counter-productive. If children’s fares were provided at half price, more families would be able to travel to visit grandparents and others   – more goodwill generated.

A lot more thinking in this country should be going into what we provide for New Zealanders and overseas travellers, and the black, gloomy cave which Auckland’s  international terminal has been turned into is no asset – any more than the new Nelson Airport – no guessing what most depressing of all colours (or non-colours) it too, now, features.  Why the preponderance of black on our planes, our rooftops and houses? Looking down from these planes, what does it say about what has happened to this country – apart from the corporatisation and over-exposure of  our All Black teams in a policy of overkill which has meant so many gradually losing interest in this  national game – with even the haka now ridiculously over-hyped –  and too ubiquitous. Has the black copycatting been largely part of this?

The growing thinking is that we have become essentially a rather stupid country in regard to so many other ill-thought decisions made by management in our hierarchies – including our government, local councils, bureaucracies and businesses. In so many areas, this is  hard to discount.

Air NewZealand is a typical example of an organisation apparently affected by poor planning in the above areas. Yet others spring to mind where it could considerably improve the standards it is offering to the public. It should, and could, be doing much better

Help Helen Houghton – for the sake of New Zealand children

Congratulations to Helen Houghton for her terrific initiative!

https://www.parliament.nz/en/pb/petitions/document/PET_83774/petition-of-helen-houghton-stop-transgender-teaching-in

Given the ongoing attack on New Zealand children in what are now utterly inappropriate “sex education” classes, this petition is well worth all our support.

27,000 signing is a good start for this country.

A similar one in the UK has now reached 100,000 signatures. And it’s time for everybody to stand up and be counted. Do support this – and let others know!

It’s also time to claim back New Zealand from the very small, but highly radicalised, stroppy sectors of the population which our politicians are giving far too much mileage – against the wishes of the majority in this country.

The witch-hunt against Allan Titford?

The witch-hunt against Allan Titford?

At last, thanks to Mike Butler and Tross Publishing, some justice for a man who has basically been framed?

As a socio-political commentator at the time, I recall being increasingly concerned at what looked very like a loaded gun, metaphorically speaking, which had been pointed at Allan Titford.  I was horrified at the charges that had been levelled against him on the flimsiest of evidence – much of it based on accusations which simply should not have carried weight in a genuine court of justice.

Equally shockingly has been the utterly undemocratic, and indeed arguably corrupted,  processes under which The Waitangi Tribunal has  been allowed to operate. Much of this is detailed in my book –”The 100 days – Claiming back New Zealand -what has gone wrong and how we can control our politicians.”

 Flawed from its inception, the tribunal has been granted far more respect than it deserves, and, biased in its findings, it has basically brought itself into disrepute.  That our political parties have given far too much credence to its findings, and that there is even provision for its findings to be binding on government is completely unacceptable.

So is what has happened to Allan Titford, with an almost unbelievable sentence of 24 years of imprisonment! More than for committing murder….Utterly incredible…

That this whole saga is an indictment on our justice system is an understatement. It is more than time for these issues to be addressed. And it is time our government fronted up.

Mike Butler explains how corrupt our justice system has become.

24 YEARS

The trials of Allan Titford

In 1987 Allan Titford was being driven off his farm by people who claimed that part of it was Maori land. His story captured the hearts and minds of many New Zealanders.

However, in 2013, when he was jailed for more than 24 years, he was called “a slave driver, a monster and a liar”.

This book tells how a treaty claim took private land against the will of its owners despite evidence that the claim was unjustified.

It analyses how Allan Titford was jailed for such a long time.

The record jail term is bizarre considering that 12 charges relied on the uncorroborated testimony of a person who admitted to perjury.

Moreover, many of the 53 charges against him were hardly tested in court.

It also shows a hidden parallel story about how the justice system was played for financial gain.

This book exposes judicial failure in both the district court and the Court of Appeal.

It asks whether the process used against Allan Titford is standard practice in the New Zealand justice system and how many more victims have been locked up by using these methods.
