Sir William correct

Of course Sir William Gallagher knew exactly what he was saying when he said the 1975 version of the Treaty of Waitangi was a fraud. Also, the document from which it was developed was incorrect. A man of Sir William's standing would not make such a statement without checking his facts. The only true version was that signed by Hobson on behalf of Queen Victoria and by over 500 Maori leaders. It gave Maori sovereignty to the Queen in return for British citizenship. A very good deal.

L Christie, Otumoetai.

Poor old Captain "Sensible". At it again with his exaggerated name calling and zero knowledge of the professionals' history of New Zealand. So what did Don Brash get wrong? Try just reading the Preamble to the Treaty. It is an official part of the document and explains what the intentions of it were. Have you ever read it Captain "Sensible"? Don Brash certainly hadn't, as he also admitted to not having read all sorts of other things. And as another example - Don Brash continues to believe that the Moriori were here before the Maori. DNA evidence shows they weren't. But neither Captain "Sensible" or Don Brash have read the research or accept the DNA - because it doesn't fit with the biased view of New Zealand they want to project. And Captain "Sensible" will continue to claim wild percentages like he does below without any substantiation.

Don Brash and Sir Gallagher are both totally correct, and the ones living off the tax payers backs can't stand the truth. Lots of name calling and references to read up on the sanitised fake history, but no facts from the Treaty usual.

inflated sense of entitlement

Most of he 85% of Kiwis denied access to maori privilege, and thus racially discriminated against, are disgusted with the griever maori sense of entitlement and privilege. Nowhere in the Treaty did it guarantee any more or any less than equality.

I was also fascinated by Kim Hill's interview as to how little she knew about the Treaty. Mr Brash was correct and Hill was floundering. I think you have just read the new reinvented NZ history that was written by the Treaty troughers. Tell us then what Mr Brash said that was wrong?

You may be right Murray but I am more optimistic about people. And after all, it doesn't take much proper research for people like Sir William to realise how wrong they are. I was fascinated by Kim Hill's interview with Don Brash on Saturday morning as to how little research he had done.

An apology after more research?

Bit harsh of me perhaps BUT I don't believe for a second Sir William has apologized after 'more research'. I have no doubt that the only research done was that in regards potential risk to 'company shares'.

Sir William has now apologised fir his statements and after further research has changed his views. Just shows how important facts really are.
