Some wonderful irony from the Herald this morning.
First the fool Nick Smith, forgoing any rational reason to impose the ETS and trying to stir up a patriotic excuse to screw us.
"The challenge I give back to you is: when our Anzac troops went to Gallipoli, and when we've got our New Zealand troops in Afghanistan, do we really think those New Zealand troops in Afghanistan are going to make a world of difference to the final outcome there?
"No, we don't. But what we do say, as New Zealanders, and what those Anzacs said in the tradition of New Zealand, is we as a country believe in doing our fair share."
He should be sacked for that comment.
Followed by this headline

Just like most NZers want NZ out of the ETS.
