It’s absolute nonsense for anyone to believe 125,000 people settling here in a year is beneficial. The pro-market lobby group NZ Initiative has the gall to insist mass immigration is a plus for this country. They claim there is little evidence to support the perception that immigrants steal jobs from Kiwis. They are blind to the fact the face of service stations, supermarket counters, and the hospitality industry has changed, from an influx mainly over the past eight years of unskilled workers. The OECD warned NZ several years ago that continued record unskilled migration would harm opportunities for “native workers”. No one can deny NZ is under strain from rapid population growth from immigration. Hospitals are under pressure, lack of housing and high rental prices is this country’s shame. New Zealand must focus on the skilled immigrants thecountry needs, and ensure that population growth is not out of kilter with the ability of housing, hospitals,schools and other services to cope.

Members of the Maori Battalion who had fought in Greece perform a Haka for the King of Greece at Helwan, Egypt in June 1941. The battalion fought during the Greek, North African and Italian campaigns during which it earned a formidable reputation as a fighting force which has subsequently been acknowledged by both Allied and German commanders. After several confrontations with them, Erwin Rommel remarked: “Give me the Maori Battalion and I will conquer the world”.
A British officer from Gallipoli quoted " Yes u can talk about your Australian and New Zealand fighters but the fiercest fighters on the peninsular were those glorious Maori lads" Lance Cope
