Southern Man: A Day in Threatened Paradise - I am a Lucky Man

Posted by Iain on June 28, 2019, 7:38 p.m. in Lighthearted

I have been having one of those magical New Zealand days that reminds me why I was so lucky to be born in this country. It is mid winter, yet temperatures continue to be mild; it’s dry and for the most part sunny but certainly not tropical.

Having stepped off a plane from South Africa, a client asked me a couple of questions. The first was whether New Zealand is now going to give preferential entry and permanent residency to Muslims over everybody else. I looked sideways at the client not quite sure if she was pulling my leg or not. I said, no, Muslims will continue to be treated just like everybody else. She followed that up with a second question asking if it true that the Christian churches of New Zealand are now being knocked down and mosques being built in their place?
