Dealing with the disloyal

One way in which we Loyalists can deal to the disloyal republicans is the law. I have recently been looking at the 1961 Crimes Act; which I have been told by a bush lawyer friend contains provisions to protect loyalty to the Queen. After looking at www.legislation.govt.nz, i can see that Section eighty-one of this Act tells us that it is illegal for any one of Her Majesty's subjects to:

"bring into hatred or contempt, or to excite disaffection against, Her Majesty, or the Government of New Zealand, or the administration of justice"

Clearly; the republicans & any other haters of the Royal family are doing this. Demanding a banana republic is disloyal to our Queen, & to our heritage & it is against the law. Sadly, I doubt that the current socialist; Labourite government of feminazi Clarke will want to prosecute their friends in the republican movement. However; I will ask my own lawyer next time I talk to him what he thinks the chances are of a private prosecution!!

Labour does something right

After doing a quick search on Google for any sign of our Labourite government doing the right thing & acknowledging the birthday of Her Majesty on the 21st, it seems that Labour might be doing something right:

What's left of our air force will also preform a 'fly-by' of Government House, the residence of Her Majesty's representative, the Governor-General.

LOYAL PROCLAMATION

Many thanks to my loyalist friend Beavorbrook of Her Majesty's Canadian Dominion.

WHEREAS the longstanding tradition of representative monarchy as constitutionally practiced by the independent peoples of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the other Realms of the Crown Commonwealth is continuously threatened by the unrelenting regressive forces around them, that left unchallenged will cause the venerable institution of monarchy, the most splendid form of constitutional government to have evolved on this Earth, to degenerate into a pathetic shadow of its former glory and inevitably or suddenly wither away;

AND WHEREAS a defeat for monarchy and for the people in any one Realm, is a defeat for monarchy and for all our peoples in all our Realms, we do hereby mutually proclaim therefore that any further acts of disloyalty carried out against our peoples as represented by their Sovereign, or any further encroachment by the political elite on their residual powers of State, or any further attempts to undermine the legitimacy, independence and dignity of their office, shall no longer be tolerated with gradualist abandonment, but fought vigilantly and honourably with dutiful obligation, bound by our undying affection, loyal devotion and true allegiance to Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, Her Heirs and Successors.

Signed:

William Jonathan Wilmot, Esq.

GOD SAVE THE QUEEN!

Positive media coverage of Prince Henry

Finally, the media has some positive & worthwhile news on the Prince Henry:

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/4901830.stm

Few media sources in New Zealand have mentioned this & in contrast to their reporting of Prince Henry's visit to a sleazy strip-club. The media is seeking to debase the monarchy in the minds of Her Majesty's Loyal Subjects!

A statute from 1324, at the time of the reign of King Edward II , states that:"Also the King shall have ... whales and sturgeons taken in the sea or elsewhere within the realm." This statute is still valid today, and sturgeons, porpoises, whales and dolphins are recognised as 'Fishes Royal'. When captured within three miles of UK shores, or washed ashore either dead or alive, they may be claimed on behalf of the Crown. Generally, when brought into port, a sturgeon is sold in the usual way, and the purchaser, as a gesture of loyalty, requests the honour of its being accepted by The Queen.

Her Majesty reigns over Queen & Country

Glorious! The Queen now graces the pages of Queen & Country. I have mastered the "img" tag for html, and am on my way to properly designing this website.

God Save the Queen!

A picture of Her Majesty; courtesy of the Monarchist League

The Monarchist League have very kindly allowed me to use the following picture of Her Majesty the Queen on my website:
I have just learnt how to use Microsoft Paint for Windows, and cut the image down. The next problem is getting this picture to stay in full view of you, dear readers!

The media beat-up of Prince Henry

As usual, the media have not missed an oppurtunity to attack the Royal family:

http://www.stuff.co.nz/stuff/0,2106,3632664a12,00.html

Every family has it's black sheep, so the old farming saying goes. Certainly Prince Henry has loose morals, but his Highness has been corrupted by other elements outside of his control & the media feeds this corruption by highlighting accidents such as this one. The media need to stop beating up members of the Royal Family, & allow them to set a moral benchmark for us all. Instead of picking on their failings as humans tell us about their charity work, for example.

New links

It seems that my website is more popular than I could ever imagine. The monarchy must still instil loyal New Zealanders with pride & a fire for the future of our country as a Commonwealth Realm!

My first lot of links are divided between Loyalists & Republican Traitors; as you can see on the side bar. I am also trying still to upload a picture of Her Majesty to grace these pages.

I have not got the time today to respond to the rabble arguing against the monarchy; but I shall take the time to respond to each & every claim made against the Monarchy.

God Save the Queen!

Republican bullies

Well, well, well. It seems that my website has become popular to lefties & other Labourites searching for someone to bully for expressing their opinions!

First up; we have Mr Lewis Holden of the "Holden Republic" (Just Holden' together Republic is it?):

www.holdenrepublic.org.nz

I should not like such a site, it is disloyal to Her Majesty. Mr Holden has recently started a whole series dedicated to mocking Her Majesty in the month of our Queen's Birthday!!

Although, Mr Holden linked my website, so that other thinking persons can see the correct arguments in defence of the Monarchy & New Zealand's constitution; from the assault by the republicans on our nation's heritage.

Next we have an unknown leftist website called "No Right Turn", a website dedicated to destroying the social fabric of New Zealand with its great 'Liberal' project; & recently speculating on the fraudulent "science" of "climate change"; which is just a way of townies getting more money from us producers, the farmers!!

www.norightturn.blogspot.com

Mr "Idiot" (an apt name for a leftist) says that people laugh at monarchists. 60% of people SUPPORT THE MONARCHY, IDIOT!! Far from laughing at 'me' or any of Royalists for that matter, the loyal subjects of Her Majesty WANT the system they currently have. Unlike Mr Idiot, the people of New Zealand will not be fooled by the republicans & their demands for a republican dictatorship!

Hey Majesty appoints our next Governor-General

Her Majesty the Queen has appointed a new representative to New Zealand:

http://www.royal.gov.uk/output/Page5147.asp

His Excellency Judge Anand Satyanand is to be Her Majesty's next Governor-General in of the Dominion. The mainstream media have made little mention of this fact; & seem to want to make His Excellency a republican dictator President! The press does not even bother to mention that Helen Clarke does not actually appoint the Governor-General, that is left up to Her Majesty to do!

http://www.newstalkzb.co.nz/newsdetail1.asp?storyID=93105

Talkback has been slow to pick this up, & the useless republicanised mainstream media has not even picked it up. Shame on them!

Monarchy; stable & just

God Wills the Monarchy in New Zealand & the British Commonwealth. I make these comments after starting a conversation on a yahoo-group of republicans & causing some anger.

In an age of loose morals & falling social standards; the monarchy remains a just institution that is willed by God.

God appointed the Windsor family to rule over his children on earth. Monarchy is therefore a natural & ordered way of government & undeniably the way in which a country should order itself. It has honour and grace borne from the Lord, God.

Monarchy is also stable. THis is because it provides legal continuity & the stability inherent. Because the Queen denies the grubby glory-seekers (MPs) the powers they desire, dictatorship is kept at bay. We could never have a dictatorship in Her Majesty's Dominion of New Zealand so long as we are a stable, just & God centered Monarchy.

God Save the Queen!

Designing this website

The other day I purchased an excellent little book on website design at the local post office. As you can tell from this website; I do not know much about designing one's own website. I do want to learn; & this book shall help me. The other problem I have is a lack of time; I am working full-time (which to you townies is around 9 hours a day; to us in the heartland it is much longer!!).

Luckily I have been supplied with pictures of Her Majesty the Queen by the Monarchist League of New Zealand, Inc. for use on this website. Keeping our Gracious Queen in view is very important to Royalists; & something republicans detest. When I understand the means by which one places pictures on their website; I shall ensure that the Queen is displayed to Her Majesty's Loyal subjects.
