So the unions have succeeded and forced the filming of The Hobbit out of New Zealand.
How much lost GDP does that represent? A billion each year? For maybe three years or so, just when the recovery desperately needs a boost.
How many lost jobs does that represent? Two or three thousand? Counting all the down steam jobs.
Where are the howls of outrage from the antique media? From the gutless leader of the opposition? So far, not a whisper. All they seem interested in is sand castles and fostering the Maori language.
This looks very much to Adolf like economic sabotage, carefully orchestrated by the trade unions' leader Andrew Little who is carefully positioning himself for a political career and desperately needs to stifle any chance of an economic recovery.
Never underestimate the disloyalty and treachery of the left.
