I would really like to find someone who could be a regular support to our family in the way of being able to look after our son occasionally and develop a relationship with him. There are times when I can't always take him to appointments etc and it would be lovely to have someone he trusts to pop in and be with him at our home. He is happy, creative and friendly boy who enjoys ball games, colouring, baking, pretend play and being outside. We have another baby on the way so this would be an ongoing set up. We can pay you $20 an hour.

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.
