Like Rats Deserting a Sinking Ship

Kiwis are Fleeing New Zealand

To avoid a nightmare scenario, Australians are well advised to demand pakeha bring their own food and drink, and contain the lot of them in NSW, Victoria and Tasmania!

Who knows what might happen next?

In the past 12 months the net loss (!) to New Zealand was about 100 kiwis per day. That is a net exodus of about 36,000 kiwis to Australia for the year.

One report called it “the biggest exodus on record.” Other peaks in kiwis deserting  New Zealand were recorded in the late 1970s, and just after the 1987 share crash.

“In November alone, 600 more people left New Zealand than arrived. That is a bad sign for an already struggling housing market, with Westpac economists expecting house prices to fall by another 5 per cent next year.” Said the report.

The tourist industry which employs 10 percent of New Zealand workforce is also badly affected both by the global awarness of the damage caused by tourism and the recession, “cutting into the $1 million an hour that overseas tourists spend here.”

The Highlights:

  • November 2008 tourist arrivals were down 4 per cent compared with same month last year. [Not enough!]
  • The number of Japanese tourists were halved (down by 46%).
  • South Korean and Chinese visitor numbers fell sharply.

Tourism New Zealand big mouth, chief executive George Hickton said tourism could nosedive by 6 per cent or more in the peak summer season. “But our concern would be from March, the low season, as bookings are quite light.

“We will have to batten down the hatches to get through a tougher time.”

How about battening down the whole stinking racket, Mr Bogeyman?  Well, what about it?
