BUGGER THE APPLES, WHAT ABOUT THE BOFFINS?



Australia has finally cleared New Zealand apples for export ending a 90 year trade battle. But, (and you heard it first here), sources have revealed to us that the Australian Government is considering excluding New Zealanders and other foreign boffins and bureaucrats from government job opportunities in Canberra.

Are you implying retaliation ?

No, Sir Loin.

I am merely drawing to NZers attention that its a bit like the apple situation. Australia's Public Service Act 1999 has always required citizenship as a condition of employment in the Public Service. But, the requirement can also be waived under the same legislation.

The leaked policy change is that waivers are to cease or at least be severely curtailed.

if they could put all the boffins on a plane and then that plane landed at woomera and the inmates got checked in for a bout 2 years, then I think both countries economies would much better off
