Let Them Eat Cake

We have friends who have emigrated to New Zealand, indeed every week we seem to hear of somebody who has gone to New Zealand. When our friends went we warned that the grass isn't always greener on the other side and guess what? The nutters are rampant over there too.

It seems that the NZ government have now identified a porky problem with their school kids and, in true nanny state style, at least one school has banned kids from bringing birthday cake to school.

You can't escape it by running to the other side of the world I'm afraid.

This, I am afraid to say, is old news - the NZers have been disappearing down the PC-tubes for as long as we have.

I agree with you Mark but, as ever, I believe they are a few years behind us. I don't mean that in a patronising way, I just think there has been less of a push there but the end is inevitable.

People should stay and fight!

Stay and fight, agreed. I lived abroad for nine years, you just get homesick.
