It's about the only positive thing I could say about Cinderella's government that they didn't have to go into coalition with the Greenmunists.
I read that

Indian Kiwis are Stateless.

An Indian
Is not a kiwi
Nor stateless.

Am I the only residual speck who vomits at the term kiwi?

Can you please, just occasionally, post something understandable?

The problem is, that was directed at me, and I understand it perfectly, even more, agree with it.

Nailed.

My heart ******* bleeds for them, and I'm just dying to see a load of my very high taxes being spent on their accommodation at our 5-star MIQ.

I have a dividing line.

Indians, Chinese, Saffers, Krauts, and even Poms, can move to NZ and call themselves Kiwis if they work, live and breed here, and contribute towards NZ Inc.

If you gain residency here, then live and work in your home country, using NZ only as a convenient back-stop, you can piss off.

As Cinderella and her gov't are praised worldwide, the reality is starting to come home to roost, showing that it's luck, not management, that's kept us safe so far.

This is downright appallingly lax management: https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/pol...since-november
