    2018: Waitangi Day

    I have never really commented on what most would regard as the advent of the country of New Zealand, solely because in my opinion the historical significance of the day has been superseded by its use as a political football.

    I will say this. It is testament to the hard work and sacrifice of those that have gone before us, that we enjoy this fine piece of real estate today. Putting our mates before ourselves, standing up for what is right, not complaining about hardship and employing sheer grit are the core values which I feel, embody the New Zealander and make this country what it is.

    While itís all about the Maori and Waitangi and politicians, I have little interest! Except itís an awesome country with heaps of potential if it was freed from its chains!!
