The minimum wage in NZ must be too high. Or maybe the Maoris are too lazy. Perhaps our politicians are too dumb. George Grey also served as Governor General of one of the Aussie states I believe. The pommie bludger served two terms here.

McDonalds and Mickey Mouse washed down with Coca Cola. Currently they are threatening trade sanctions on any country protecting the jobs of their own people while imposing tarrifs on New Zealand and Australian lamb. This is to protect USA sheep farmers. Talk about hypocrisy.
