Enslave New Zealand
Are you tired of "namby-pamby politicians with their bean-counting, child-smooching sweaty handshakes?" A few Australians are, so they've taken politics into their own hands and formed the Enslave New Zealand Party. If elected, members of this party promise one thing: to invade New Zealand and enslave its entire population. Their plan sounds foolproof. After all, as they point out, "New Zealand bases her defence policy on one simple fact: no one can attack New Zealand without going through Australia first. This is generally true but there is, of course, one exception…Australia." But has the Enslave New Zealand party forgotten about Frodo, Gandalf, and Aragorn? Surely they'd save New Zealand.

Bring it on, Australia. Our weapons may be pitchforks, but damned if they're not sharp.

I'd love it if someone enslaved the New Zealanders. My husband's family is from NZ & if they think it's so DAMN GREAT, THEY SHOULD JUST PACK UP ALL OF THEIR DAMN STUFF WITH THEIR DAMN ACCENTS AND PADDLE BACK IN A DAMN CANOE FOR ALL I CARE!

Excuse me. I didn't mean to be so harsh. Don't know where that came from. I love my in-laws. Really. They're not pretensious or snobby!

Ha! to Aussie F-111's. We will form a ring of steel with our 5 Air Defence Mistral launchers.

We laugh at the though of invasion.

If there were any threat, the Government would legislate against it.

"We laugh at the tough of invasion..." Andy, 'thought' has a T in it. You don't need to be so serious. We're just playing around.

But - I though(t) that the idea that a country could protect itself by making it illegal for another country to invade, was amusing.

The same way that NZ's total of 5 VLLAD launchers could protect more than about 10 square kilometres.

Of course, there is also a Phalanx air defence system, but the two ANZAC frigates have to take turns to use it.

But what will happen to all the sheep? Surely they'll get very lonely if all the NZers are over in Oz.

Is that why the two main imports to Aussie-Land (not affiliated with Disney World Domination Corp) are velcro-palmed gloves and rubber boots?
