Hobson's Pledge, What Did It Mean, the interpretation today.

Hi Neighbours, it appears that the flyer from the Hobson's Pledge group needs to be viewed as to, meaning.

Some have seen it as racist, and other see it as not wanting separate development or whatever for different members of the same Society. It also appears, that the idea of One People, is what Hobson was wanting, but is that a true interpretation of intent.?
I will be happy to hear what others think.
I interpret Hobson's One People as meaning, equal under the law, with Queen Victoria as our mutual Queen.
If you think about colonisation, India, Africa, parts of China all the red on the old world maps, all those countries were ruled by Queen Victoria, but it did not mean that all those people necessarily wanted to give up their identities and culture to totally embrace the English way of life? While the were all governed by the same laws and institutions, they were not all forced to accept the church of England.
I therefore, do not think that Hobson's Pledge was anything like the flyer producers are trying to say. Has Maori been treated as equal under the law, which in fact, as Hone Morris pointed out statutes were written to take away land, and even the language. The Treaty clearly showed that an intent was to preserve the things important to Maori of the time, and still important today.
Partnership is what in my view, was intended.
So the Hobson's Pledge flyer, is iin my view, divisive and should find a home in the recycling bin.

College Street debacle, and what is the real agenda.

Iola from Awapuni

My question is Why ? There has been no call by residents for this downgrade, there has been no serious accidents on this stretch of road, nor has there been any call for the removal of parking in the area. The argument that 8 primary/intermediate schools should be able to safely cycle to school is a total red herring, as the law states clearly that children under 14 years should not be travelling without adult supervision. So what is the hidden agenda? We remember the debacle about dogs on leads between Dittmer Drive and the Fitzherbert bridge was being promoted as necessary for the safety of children, when in fact it became something the cycling lobby wanted, and succeeded in getting.
So what is this current nonsense talk up all about? Has PNCC entered into negotiations to have some of the 3000 Lime scooters available in Palmerston North?

I meet employers interested in giving me a job but so far 100% of them have wanted weekend work as well. I don't have access to free family babysitters and I'm not going to pay a babysitter all my minimum wage. I'm guessing other single parents and some couples have this road block to. Isn't it about time day cares and places like the YMCA are open 7 days?

In conjunction with the Art Trail Manawatu, Graham is opening his studio to visitors over this weekend from 10am to 4pm daily. His studio is half way between Ashhurst and Palmerston North on Glenburn Road - which runs off Napier Road.

Graham’s paintings depict his life-long love of farming and the rugged landscape that New Zealand offers. Somewhat aptly, his large, light-filled studio is a converted room in his hay barn.

There is no charge to visit and we have put on a bit of a spread for those attending - think wine and cheese or coffee and muffins (depending on what you are in the mood for!)

All the details and a map can be found on his website home page: www.grahamchristensen.co.nz...
Or for more info on the Art Trail: www.arttrailmanawatu.com...
