Go home William
Republic of New Zealand Party
For immediate release
Bye Bye Wills! Bye Bye Gov-General! Bye Bye Royal Pomp!
It’s time for Kiwis to say Bye Bye to royal pomp, says Kerry Bevin, a spokesman for the Republic of New Zealand Party.
New Zealand Republicans will be at the opening of the Supreme Court building to tell William to go home.
“Elizabeth is the last monarch down under, Charles is not required.”
Mr Bevin said that Kiwis could make their own judgments. He said that we do need to scrutinize the appointment of Judges carefully, considering some of the debacles that occur in our Justice system.
“Who are our Supreme Court Judges?” Mr Bevin asked.
According to Mr Bevin John Key’s reinstatement of knighthoods is a leap backwards to the Middle Ages.
“Does he want to be tapped on the shoulder too?”
Mr Bevin said the National Coalition lacks the vision for constitutional reform to move New Zealand forward. We need a constitution that makes all kiwis equal, protects our human rights and defines us as independent from English traditions as their former colonies have.
“Even our former colony, Samoa has a constitution.”
Mr Bevin claimed more Kiwis were interested in having their own honours, the Queen’s profile off our money and a new national flag. Separate Maori representation is divisive. No head of state is necessary in a ‘real’ Republic.
The Republic of New Zealand Party wants to give all citizens a New Start by developing a constitution that claims our true identity as a proud Pacific nation.
