      Home? Is ISIS not her home? What could she possibly want from life that could be provided in the west?

    ‘A warning notice on potential risks to Chinese tourists travelling to New Zealand has raised further questions about the state of the New Zealand-China relationship.’

    https://www.newsroom.co.nz/@news/2019/02/14/443844/warnings-to-chinese-tourists-spark-further-questions

    I’m losing my faith in Newsroom a bit …

    The Chinese government warning Chinese tourists about Kiwi driving and the risk of robbery being perpetrated on them doesn’t seem entirely out of order to me …

    It may be nothing more than that?

    Or … It may truly be a reflection of deteriorating NZ-China relations … The surreptitious, covert aftermath of the JLR saga?

    We’re not going to investigate Chinese influence and Electoral Financing … We’re just going to be at their mercy …
