    We're getting it from Australia, Japan and the US....Not aid, as in money, but aid as in firefighters, police, search and rescue folk. Very much appreciated, too.

    he'd know that if he watched the news.


    but he's trying to imply that b/c New Zealand is "white", it isn't getting the aid that, say, haiti did.

    Well, it's about 60 per cent white....and shrinking....Plus we are a first world country with a stable economy and infrastructure. Can't say the same about Haiti...

    Everyone knows New Zealand's ethnic majority is hobbit, not white. It was in a documentary I saw once.


    Facts, people.
