Six generations ago our tipuna paddled their way here from somewhere in the South Pacific ... In fact there were quite a few tipuna who paddled their way here so John Key is right. Sooner or later, a few good tides and the right winds and we will get some refugees heading our way..

There are two sides to the boat people debate. They are seen as queue jumpers.. Those who go through the right channels are disadvantaged if we take them.

However, the courage, the steely resolve, the stamina and the will to stare death in the face for a taste of freedom has to be admired. They would make good citizens.
