You really believe that New Zealanders on this booard capture the entire NZ people?

And why, exactly, do you assume I am NOT a Kiwi?

I know plenty of Kiwis who are either not Tolkien/PJ fanatics, and who frequent other Tolkien-related messageboards, that are appalled by this decision.

Most are happy to have the film stay in country, and wanted it to stay in country, but are aghast at the degree to which the NZ government bent over backwards and further reduced the rights of workers.

In terms of basic human rights and employment protection, the NZ government just took a big step backward, and I'll be darned if I'm going to do a jig and purchase party favors in response.
