One of the highlights of our Whangarei conference was what a Maori elder said to me at the end of the meeting. He said “Thank you. I am going to go public to support what you are doing.” I thanked him and we had a man hug.
Basically, the message that he received from the conference was that tribal representatives, via co-governance, are going to screw over the 160 cultures living in our country, including ALL non elite Maori.
The comment of this Maori man also reinforced to me another big point. And what is that point? It’s that Maori are being fed lies and deceit by Maori journalists and the media generally about co-governance and the Treaty.
This Maori man had never heard the other side of the story. All he had heard was the narrative pumped out by the 4th estate, our government controlled media – and Maori journalists.
Conclusion? The campaign we are running, these meetings all over the country, are about raising public awareness. The public just don’t know the truth and realities of co-governance, and this is the way the government and tribal leaders want it.
To counter this we all have to participate, and be active all the time. How?
- Giving out our business cards regularly. View them HERE. If you want some delivered for you for free, call Geoff on 021 1428750
- Inviting people to events
- Helping set up events. If you want to know who to call in your area, email me and I will put you in touch with people. firstname.lastname@example.org
- Financing the tour. Please don’t stop giving. We need finance to pay the bills and open up new places for me to speak. Plus I have my own living expenses to take care of.
If all of us could do all four, we are going to make a massive impact, and in doing so will stop co-governance.
Our biggest challenge is that we only have a limited amount of time to do this. We have a small window between now and the next election. It’s now or never.
We need $5400 to make 5000 hard copies of my book. You can read it HERE
The strategy is to print five thousand. Then ask supporters to buy copies at $1.50 each which will provide funds for a reprint. The supporters can then deliver the books to people in their neighbourhood.
The goal is to go around the main stream media, bye pass. them, and get to the people directly.
It’s a great plan. It will work. We just need all the people who hate co-governance to rise up and become active.
I am asking each of the people who are getting to this blog to make the time and financial sacrifice to make this happen.
Nothing happens without sacrifice.
We have to be more determined to stop co-governance than the tribal representative are to keep it going.
Only one side can win here.

A big shout out to the teams around the country who are up and running. They have hired a hall and set their date and their flyers are underway.
Never forget, members of the public who receive a flyer in their letter box are shown how they can learn the truth about co-governance and why it’s so wrong. Through QR codes they can 1. Watch the video of me speaking in Warkworth 2. Read my on-line book on Co-Governance. Why it’s wrong and why it must be stopped 3. Learn about our web site and thus sign up to my blog.
This is huge! Why? We are bring public awareness.
