Bye Bye Charles
Republic of New Zealand Party spokesman Kerry Bevin, is saying, “Bye bye Charles.”
“Real Republicans want royal ties cut so that kiwis can grow up constitutionally and be completely self-determining.”
“The new democratic Republic of New Zealand would need a new written Constitution that supersedes the archaic Treaty and sets out principles of governance for all citizens as free and equal under the law.”
Kerry Bevin said that Charles can take John and Jerry back to England with him along with other cringers, sycophants and wannabes.
“Class privilege, the medieval trappings of monarchy and the divine right of kings has no place in modern egalitarian New Zealand, going forward into the new millennium.”
“Obviously John is angling for a knighthood for his CV. That will please Mummy. Jerry’s pomp and ceremony is irrelevant and embarrassing in a small country.”
According to Mr Bevin, former Prime Ministers Jim Bolger and Helen Clark have acknowledged this reality.
Our current sycophantic Prime Minister is obstructing our constitutional development as he trickles money up to his mates.”
Mr Bevin said the Republic of New Zealand Party would introduce a Presidential model of government.
“That means Jerry would have to leave office and Government House. John would move in as the incumbent leader to take up residence as the elected President and Head of State. Jerry isn’t elected.”
The Republic of New Zealand Party would also ask Kiwis, in a binding referendum, if they wanted the black flag with the fern on it as the country’s official flag.”
It would certainly become our new flag, Mr Bevin said
“Good riddance to the Union Jack! The Empire is dead! Kiwis are not Poms!”
