So why don't the Aussies just annex NZ? It's not as though they could resist...oh, I know, who wants them?
" New Zealand was the safest place in the world"
Yes, because it's a naive, elitist little island out in the middle of nowhere, it doesn't do anything, except raise sheep, takes no risks and nobody gives a damn about it.

I shall decline to speak ill of the dead, and so I shall say nothing of Mr. Lange beside the fact that "poseur" describes him perfectly. Anti-Americanism was, for him, the same easy out as it was in the Philippines for a set of like-minded demagogues. It doesn't take any particular courage to demand that a guest leave knowing that the guest will scrupulously honor it. It takes even less integrity to misrepresent that as a mighty victory over a giant.
