Canadian film makers welcome, Chinks bug off, NZ the Land of the KKK Cloud
The Crafar farms issue gets more abhorent by the day.
Talkback hosts continue to incite wingnuts and nutjobs. Media generally takes a biased, anti-Chinese line, but ignores hypocritical Maori attitudes and fails, in the main, to actaully look at the issue on a rational basis. Cartoonists, especially Tom Scott seem to be negative.
Yet today we see from Stuff:-
The director of blockbuster films Titanic and Avatar has purchased two plots of land along Western Lake Rd in south Wairarapa, where he is expected to arrive and live later this year.
Records released today from the Overseas Investment Office show James F Cameron, of Canada, was given consent in December to purchase two separate properties, one 817 hectares and the other nearly 250 hectares.
The purchase price is listed as confidential.
Owners of the two properties were staying tight-lipped about the sales, citing confidentially agreements.
Bill Shaw, who along with wife Annette owned Pounui farm on the hillside overlooking Lake Onoke, said he had been ”sworn to secrecy”.
”But that’s probably just going to flame the rumours isn’t it,” he said.
He would not confirm Cameron as the new owner.
”There’s lots of famous people down here, just most of them are shepherds.”
Heather McCreary, who owned the smaller dairy farm block at the edge of the lake, would also not comment today.
Cameron is thought to be arriving later this year to begin work on a sequel to the box office hit Avatar, to be made with Weta Digital.
But the documents show that Cameron’s New Zealand connection will be more than just a working one.
”James F Cameron and his family intend to reside indefinitely in New Zealand and are acquiring the property to reside on and operate as a working farm,” it notes.
So Mr Cameron has bought land in NZ. Where are the complaints?
Why is he not pilloried in the media like Shanghai Pengxin?
He has bought a dairy farm, shock horror our heritage has been sold.
Adam thinks this exposes quite clearly the hypocrisy, racism and sheer ignorance on this issue.
NZ is a disgrace on this issue, the intolerance and racial hatred is obnoxious and disgusting. The message to the world on this, is white OK, yellow not wanted. Now we know why NZ is the land of the Long White Cloud. It is the Land of the KKK Cloud.
