The OREWA Speech: on a hot summer’s night, the 24th of January 2004, Don Brash, the then leader of the National Party, shattered a consensus.

Willie Jackson will present his Orewa Speech at the same location on Saturday 29th of July. The fun will commence at 7.00pm.

We won’t second guess Willie’s take on the Original Orewa Speech, what happened politically immediately after and what impact is has had over the past 13 years.

However you can.

After the speech we will host a Q& A.

Grant Duncan, political commentator from Massey University’s Albany campus, will talk about boosting public confidence in political leaders

A 3 Course Buffet Dinner and red and white wine is included in the fee.

Orewa Rotary House is in Silverdale, 300m from SH1 and 18 minutes from Harbour Bridge. Buses from Britomart stop across the road at the Hibiscus Park and Ride. The last bus is at 9.58.

The E Tu Band, “Not the Day Job” will provide music while you rake over the past and dance to the future.

Tickets are available now for $79.00 per head (Eventbrite link). This includes a 3 course buffet dinner, and a bottle of white and a bottle of red on each table. Table bookings are also available. Table of 6 $420.00, table of 8 $520.00, for these bookings email [email protected]

Marja Lubeck, the Labour Candidate for Rodney, No 31 on the List and the E Tu Director of Aviation, will host the event.

    Nicky Hager’s 2006 book The Hollow Men claims that the speech was written, in part, by Michael Bassett, a claim denied by Bassett!

    I wonder if Willie is getting input from Helen Clark!

    ……..the topic I will focus on today, is the dangerous drift towards racial separatism in New Zealand, and the development of the now entrenched Treaty grievance industry. We are one country with many peoples, not simply a society of Pakeha and Maori where the minority has a birthright to the upper hand, as the Labour Government seems to believe.

    I’m dizzy at reading this heady stuff from Don Brash in 2004. I’m looking forward to what Willie Jackson has to say. Ticket in handbag!
