Queen's Visit To New Freeland - Proposed Programme

22 August 2001

Media Statement

Libz Proposed Programme For The Queen's Visit To New Freeland

Libertarianz leader Peter Cresswell today released the unofficial programme for the Queen's visit in October, noting that Helen Clark's earlier proposed programme for the Queen gives both women undue and undeserved importance.

The Queen, who will be accompanied by the Duke of Edinburgh, will arrive in Auckland from Adelaide on Friday 12 October and spend the weekend of 13-14 October at Taupo withdrawing her earlier apologies to assorted Maori tribes for things not done to them - which apologies were extracted under advisement from the now disgraced Lord Montrose of Drury - and signing formal Renunciation of Sovereignty documents over New Zealand. (Note to admin: Queen's bill for Taupo stay to HM Government, Downing Street).

The official visit begins and ends with a farewell ceremony at Parliament Buildings in Wellington on 15 October wherein the Queen will promise never to step foot in New Zealand again except at her own expense, and in return New Zealanders promise to stand on their own two feet in future.

"The programme will offer New Zealanders an appropriate opportunity to thank the Queen for all she has done for New Zealanders," says Cresswell. "It will also provide an appropriate opportunity for New Zealanders to mark the end of the Queen's reign in New Zealand, and to ask what they got for their money." he said, "and - more importantly - it will allow New Zealanders to celebrate a new future under a new constitution with a government fully committed to protecting the individual rights of all New Zealanders equally - something Her Majesty's New Zealand Government has not done for a very, very, very long time," he said.

"Immediately upon the ending of the ceremony New Freeland will be declared and the Libertarianz Constitution for New Freeland enacted," said a delighted Cresswell. "Thereafter the Queen can please herself what she does, and she probably will, and New Freelanders can please themselves what they do, as long as they don't interfere with others doing likewise."

(At the request of Her Soon-to-be-Former Majesty, we would like to announce that the Libertarianz Constitution for New Freeland can be downloaded from www.libertarianz.org.nz )

Gordon Campbell: On Why The Dice Are Loaded Against Women In Public Life

If they enter public life, women can expect a type of intense (and contradictory) scrutiny that is rarely applied to their male counterparts. If they are relatively young and conventionally attractive, such women will tend to be written off as lightweights – yet if they’re older and obviously competent, doubts will then tend to be raised about their “electability” and whether they are “warm” and “likeable” enough to connect with voters. Too conventionally feminine or not conventionally feminine enough? Too cold and too cerebral, or too warm and flighty to be seriously considered for high public office? For women in the public spotlight, the Goldilocks moments (when things are just right) are few and far between. More>>
