Oz giving the cold shoulder to Kiwis? Times must be hard.
Hmm, Phar Lap?(Timaru, NZ born Aussie super nag) Crowded House? (Neil Finn, band leader and Kiwi.) Any other Kiwi who jumps the ditch and becomes succesful? Instant Honorary Aussie.
And worst and most unforgivable of all they steal the Pavlova! Kiwi merangue type desert par excellance.
Bastards to a man.
They now get all the Mediteranian types, Italians, Greeks, Lebanese and various Arabs so the True Blue Ozzie Ocker has someone to beat up on at the beach in the summer.
As a Kiwi PM, Robert Muldoon, once said " New Zealanders who emigrate to Australia raise the IQ of both Nations." :lol:
I've heard of this from several sources in Oz who are muttering about the perceived Kiwi invasion! The 'up' side for Brits (up to now) is that it has perhaps made it a bit easier to emigrate into NZ; if, of course, you have the required skills.
