John Key's speech to Australia moving but fallacious

Share |
John Key, PM of NZ believed a very moving speech to the Australian Parliament. It was this first such address by a NZ prime minister, and follows the speech by George Bush, as the visiting US President. With respect to its content however I must say:
1. Having lived in NZ that the values of NZ people are quite different. Not that its a problem; but it betrays the sentiments of the speech. Everyone likes to mention what we share. This of course betrays the facts, which also include differences. We actually have quite different histories. Shared aspirations? I don't think so. The only Australians going to NZ are those trying to escape a repressive government, and tourists wanting to check out what a real mountain and earthquake looks like. Most of the 560,000 NZ'ers in Australia came over for the money, even if they learned to live there.
2. The CER represents a 'global standard in free trade agreements'. Really? What about the apples Mr Key. NZ apples were restricted for trumped up scientific reasons...you know...the type used to justify climate/carbon taxes.

There are many positives about this speech. The sentiments are warm and welcoming; but sadly they are quite a stray from the facts and from principle. Most concerning is the sentiments expressed - that both countries are committed to freedom:
"That democracy, freedom and the rule of law should be cherished and fostered".

In the policies of both the Australian and NZ, trade aside, I see no evidence of freedom, and would argue that democracy is but a legitimatised form of fascism. Great speech lest we forget the facts.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life.
