New Zealand’s loss in the first America’s Cup race this morning and the postponement, again, of the second is:
1) a deliberate act on behalf of sponsors to maximise the exposure they get.
2) as Scrubone said, a Cantabrian conspiracy to secretly get the entire country dressed in red and black.
3) a government plot to keep the country focussed on the same thing.
4) a Labour Party plot to keep Trevor Mallard out of the country.
