Another Fabulous Meeting In Tauranga -And The 1835 Declaration of Independence
Last night we held another fabulous meeting in Tauranga.
Out of this meeting will come new meetings in Taupo and Tokoroa.
In the Q and A time, the 1835 Declaration of Independence was brought up. This has happened several time in our meetings.
What is the truth about this Declaration?
This declaration was never ratified by the British Government.
It was seen by them, officially, as Busby “having a go at doing his own thing”.
But he was never authorised to even initiate the agreement.
If the Declaration of Independence is bone fide, the real deal, as some in our meetings claim, then how does one explain the coming of Hobson to New Zealand in 1840 and the Treaty at Waitangi?
The entire episode of the Treaty of Waitangi would have been a complete waste of time, since an agreement had been signed off by the chiefs in 1835.
That is to say, if the Declaration of Independence in 1835 was bone fide and valid, why the need for the Treaty in 1840?
Yet, as we all know, the British government did send Hobson, and we all know the story.
Something does not add up here. HERE is the truth about this Declaration.
