I wasn't surprised by Peter Brown's comments that immigrants should "integrate or stay away" and that "New Zealand First...will not welcome immigrants if they come from societies with a "class system" or where women are treated as subservient to men" but I am surprised by the online Herald response.
I suggest that if you are choking on your cornflakes this morning, take a good look at the photo of Brown as it'll sure make you regurgitate it straight back up again. What a pig of a man.
My view is that immigrants can come here and do whatever they like as long as they follow our laws.
If they want to wear Burkas, they can wear Burkas. If they want to talk Mandarin let them talk Mandarin. I love the diversity our immigrants bring.
What does Brown want? Dress them all in tight Levi's with Caterpillar boots and Waikato Chiefs rugby jerseys?
Because that's about the best most Kiwi blokes can offer up.
Boguns or Burkas? I'll take Burkas.
