Bye Bye Wills

6 April 2014

Bye Bye Wills

Real republicans have seen enough cringing sycophants and wannabes before the royal circus even hits the road, said Kerry Bevin, former leader of the Republic of New Zealand Party.

The republican activist claims it’s time for true Kiwis to say, Bye Bye Wills and that Elizabeth must be the last Monarch down after.

“To be swearing allegiance to foreign privilege and discrimination by birth is an affront to the self-determination of Kiwi citizens. Unelected status is profoundly anti-democratic.”

Mr Bevin contended that such provocation is unwise.

“The royals should not be putting George in harm’s way. This outmoded grandstanding will end in tears.”

“Those unfortunates whose esteem is so low that they need to fawn before their perceived superiors need to see a counsellor and then get a one way ticket to London.”

Mr Bevin believes our Prime Minister has seen the error of his constitutional ways and wants a new flag without the Union Jack

“We are no longer an English colony. The Empire is dead!”

Mr Bevin said the royal visit charade will cost Kiwi taxpayers millions that could be spent on school lunches.

“Onward to the Republic of New Zealand. The President is NOT happy.”
