Quote of the day

New Zealand has been moving forward with these trends. That’s the only way to move. The alternative is going backwards.

The period I’ve been involved in has been about New Zealand finding its feet and the making of modern NZ.

The country we have now is rather more like the NZ of myth.

It’s place where people get things done for themselves, and where the country is self-reliant.

There is concern for the other person, but not the stifling reliance on the government.

It’s more realistic, it’s healthier, it’s different. We’re not a perfect country yet.

But if you think about it, we’re a damn sight better placed than in 1972.Bill Birch who celebrates his 85th birthday today.
