China's ambassador to New Zealand has heaped pressure on the government to open its borders in the wake of the novel coronavirus, stating she would protect "the interests" of Chinese students.

In a press conference in Wellington on Tuesday, ambassador Wu Xi downplayed the risk of the novel coronavirus outbreak in China, which she described as "generally under control" thanks to the "miracle" mobilisation of the Chinese state.

Note from Nighthawk.NZ:

Fuck off, if I have my way the restrictions would be for at least another month or two... and if virus outbreak happened here in New Zealand your Communist Party would have had instant travel bans and done even more... Stop trying to interfere with how we run our country... the safety of our people comes first before you pathetic excuses. 

So fuck off with your Communist BS.

In 2010, Rod Lyon of the Australian Strategic Policy Institute wrote: “With the return of the more strategically-extroverted Kiwi, it is a good time for Australia and New Zealand to be putting more meat on the bones of their Closer Defence Relationship.” 1 Various areas of the “closer defence relations” between Australia and New Zealand are ripe for cooperative enhancement, but one of the most obvious is amphibious operations. Both nations have recognized that their amphibious forces provide a means to further jointness among national service branches, but the current international interest in amphibiosity means they are also a tool for effective engagement and for enhancing interoperability.

A leading economist says that applying New Zealand's top tax rate to earnings over $70,000 means that middle-class Kiwis are hurting and the income threshold should be increased.

Speaking to The AM Show on Monday, Cameron Bagrie of Bagrie Economics said that taking $0.33c in the dollar from income over $70,000 is "just ridiculous."
