Press Release: New Zealand Republican Movement
THE Republican Movement is amazed at New Zealand's obsession
with the Queen Mum.
100th birthday," Republican Movement
president Dave Guerin said today. "Her family and friends
should celebrate but why are we bothering on the other side
of the world?
"Isn't it sad that we don't celebrate in the
same way the lives of those who really have affected New
Zealand? Other New Zealanders celebrate significant
achievements and milestones every day, but they are not
covered by the media or lauded in Parliament.
