    I am totally annoyed at the position “elected” New Zealand has taken. I cannot believe that the New Zealander in the street has elected you. Your soldiers dead in their graves in the Middle East would roll over if they could. Muldoon said that for every New Zealander that left to come over to Australia it raised the IQ of both countries; and he was right about a lot of things but he certainly got that one wrong. You’ve been chasing sheep for too long!

    That’s all very well BUT what about apologising for all the other erroneous and historically distorted lies stated in the offensive misnamed “fact sheet?”

    As the expression says: “pull the other one, mate.”
