God help Denmark if the party that Ms Krarup ever gets a real say in Government. Fortunately Danish politics is not in such a poor state that this could happen----surely. This woman continues to talk rubbish. She says that New Zealand 'free rides' on Australia in defence matters. She uses the fact that NZ and Australia cooperate in defence arrangements and that somehow this represents something negative and demeaning for NZ. She seems to be completely ignorant of the history between NZ and Australia and the shared blood we have shed over the years. Of course Australia will always ne the 'senior partner' in any defence arrangements. NZ is not as wealthy and does not and can not spend the same amount of money on defence. She absolutely got it wrong, just as she did re her ignorant comments the other day. She has also tried to appeal to 'like-minded' bottom dwellers in NZ to justify her outburst. Luckily the Danish community here and most NZers see her for what she is--- a bigoted and failed politician with no hope of ever holding the reigns of power in her country. She will still be welcome here, despite her narrow and xenophobic vision and maybe next time, she will take the time to find out about the uniqueness of what a Powhiri represents.
