Does anyone think that any Cabinet Minister in the UK or Australia, or a senior US politician if asked to plank on live TV would do so? This one tiny episode shows that we are not like these other countries. We are unique in our self deprecatory light hearted easy going way of life. We dont take ourselves too seriously. If we were any more laid back we would be horizontal.
Snapshots like that partly explain why it’s great to live in New Zealand. We live in a truly great place and we have great prospects led by John Key who, God and voter willing, is in charge of BUILDING OUR FUTURE.
