‘EXTORTION BY A THOUSAND DEMANDS’
‘..As each month passes, there are new rights, new privileges, new funding, new settlements – all in a relentless incremental transfer of money, power and public resources that goes largely unnoticed by most New Zealanders, who are too busy getting on with their own lives. However, some New Zealanders (especially those associated with the NZCPR) do notice, because we have come to realise that this is all part of a much larger agenda – a drive for the co-governance of New Zealand. How to alert a largely passive public, who are blindingly oblivious to the danger, will be our major challenge next year…
…Those calling for a new “written” constitution want to transfer that ultimate law-making power from our elected representatives to unelected judges – who cannot be sacked. By re-drafting our constitutional arrangements into a single document, lawyers and judges would be put in charge of law-making in New Zealand and if our elected Members of Parliament tried to change this arrangement, their attempts would be struck out as being “unconstitutional”.’
Leftists/”progressives”/socialists are not welcome here. Pay for your own soapbox.
