Andy Oakley spent his first 20 years growing up in New Zealand’s lowest socio-economic suburb in the 1960 and 70s. He witnessed the arrival of gangs, the trend towards social dysfunction and poverty during the 1970s and 80s.
He is the author of two books, ‘Cannons Creek to Waitangi’, a book that details how and why he made a Treaty claim to the Waitangi Tribunal and also ‘Once We Were One, The Fraud of Modern Separatism’, a book that exposes ‘race’ as a social construct, highlights fraudulent changes made to our history which have resulted in racial separatism and also allowed a false version of the Treaty to be taught to every child in New Zealand.
In his spare time he has spent many years racing both motorcycles and classic cars. Andy lives with his partner Isabelle in Raumati. He has two sons and one granddaughter.
Dallin McLaughlin was never really interested in politics until 2020 when politics seemed to smother every part of his internet life. The COVID-19 pandemic responses and the American 2020 Election took him down the political rabbit hole.
After learning about the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of America – the founding documents of the United States of America – and seeing how beneficial they were for maintaining the cohesiveness of a diverse society, he wanted to learn more about New Zealand’s independent beginnings.
Te Tiriti O Waitangi (The Treaty of Waitangi) is New Zealand’s founding document. He hopes New Zealanders will view each other as equal brothers and sisters before the law of the land, and help each other out in a spirit of unity and charity which is the true spirit of Te Tiriti O Waitangi.
In his late teens Dallin traveled to the Philippines to do missionary work on behalf of his church group. He relished the time in which he became close friends with the Filipino people and experienced their flavour of life. His eyes were opened to the great opportunities he has had in New Zealand compared to the opportunities citizens of other countries such as the Philippines have.
Dallin enjoys playing the piano, mathematics, and learning different coding languages. He is a self-employed piano and math tutor, which he began doing during his university days. During the summer university breaks he worked at the Alliance Freezing Works.
Dallin was invited to become a member of the One New Zealand Party Board in the middle of 2021.
Born in Wanganui (as it was known then) into a politically aware family, Tina lived most of her life in Rotorua with the past 15 years spent in the Eastern Bay of Plenty near Kawerau with her self-employed husband of 20 years; Andrew (Ngati Kahungunu/Tuwharetoa) and their teenage son.
During the day, Tina is working full time in asset and contract management while at night, takes care of the paperwork required for our ‘run from home’ small business.
Away from work, Tina has spent more than 20 years in dog training and competes in Dog Agility. Her friends call her a ‘Political Geek’ but since shedding her tribalistic tendencies and embracing evidence-based ideas and opinions, Tina has learned that in politics, all is not as it seems and there are lessons to be had from politicians of all stripes – be they ‘Shining Examples’ or ‘Tragic Warnings’!!
Tina is a staunch believer in freedom of speech, diversity of thought and opinion and equity of opportunity all underpinned by ‘Do unto others as you would have them do unto you’.
In March 2019, Tina was invited onto the Board of One New Zealand Party as Member Representative.
