SPOT THE DIFFERENCE.

On the 18th of March 2004 these seemingly identical articles, configured to occupy the exact same page space in section A7 within the New Zealand Herald, were read throughout the entirety of New Zealand. Ian Wishart, talkshow host and editor of Investigate Magazine, has stated on air, after talking to media colleagues, that there is now, in place, a general policy imposed upon media personnel, forbidding any mentioning the "Littlewood Treaty" to the public. Back in mid-March the Bay of Plenty edition of the Herald included "Littlewood Treaty" mention in it's early edition, which seemingly was not picked up by censors until later, thereby allowing the electorate of Winston Peters to find out exactly what their M.P. was talking about. As far as we know, in all other districts of New Zealand the offending "Littlewood Treaty" mention was removed by media ideological officers and a much more non-descript and docile filler text inserted in its place. Of the newspaper articles directly below, the top one is the heavily censored version that most New Zealanders got to read.

Member of Parliament, Winston Peters, was referring to a particular English Treaty of Waitangi text being "officially" recognised as the pre-eminent version and needing to be implemented to supplant the oppressive text that has been, increasingly, used to formulate government policy. This would constitute a huge change of political direction and fortunes for most New Zealanders and, if implemented, would undermine the very foundation upon which the multi-billion dollar grievance industry is built. The repercussions and ongoing effects such a change in "Treaty interpretation" would have upon all New Zealanders, at every level, is enormous. Whereas this statement by Mr. Peters should have caused investigative journalists to come flocking in droves, the ensuing silence from the media was deafening. The imposed blackout was the result of contrived and deliberate, organised "blanket suppression" by ideological officers monitoring the media. New Zealanders are reduced to the fate of mushrooms, being eternally kept in the dark and fed manure of a masculine bovine variety. In the articles below, the one on the left is the very limited edition that Bay of Plenty residents were allowed to see, whereas we lesser peasants in other districts were denied that right.
