Two recently published Guardian newspaper articles show how down-right weird New Zealand has become.
The first quotes Prime Minister Key (famous for his prison soap and ponytail capers) lambasting his fellow countrymen for being lazy stoners. Apparently, thousands of migrants are flooding in (mostly from China and India) while 200,000 locals kick-back and toke-up.
The second article is wrong on so many levels – from a primary school fundraiser promoting cocaine use, to the country’s health minister having to deny claims he ‘inhaled’ fake cocaine at the event…
An anonymous source said there were numerous photos on social media of parents pretending to snort cocaine, including photos posted by teachers of the school. “This school has parents who are ministers of the current government, are health professionals, teachers, lawyers, police and so on,” the source said.
Fox said the school had held a fundraising ball every year for the last seven years. It had never received a complaint regarding inappropriate props before and the event normally raised upwards of $20,000. NZ Herald
Ironically, Northcote Primary School is in an area very popular with migrant families.
