New World of Shit
The opposition NZ National Party immigration spokesman Lockwood Smith said that guest workers from the Pacific Islands need to be taught how to use showers and toilets. This caused a big scandal, LS is now not going to get Immigration cabinet post.
Funny thing is: NZ has a bad record of GastroEnteritis and Nora virus. The country isnt very clean.
I have lived in slums in SEAsia, that people here in NZ would call 'filthy' but never got Enterobius vermicularis (thread worms) there.
Surely because we wash our bottoms with water, rather than wipe with paper.
Head lice are common in both tropics and cold 40s. Somehow I dont get headlice anymore, despite children abounding, I suspect my dandruff deters them.
In NZ, every time I buy a salad roll, I get a 50% chance of worms. I love Rocket, but the packets of rocket from New WorldSupermarket
(which has displaced asian vegetable shops in central wgtn) have a 50%+ chance of giving me worms. Small leaves hard to wash, so its no rocket for me.
Up to now, I dont get LBM or serious symptoms, but you have to worry about Hepatitis. Last week a couple of old people karked it from Nora virus. NZ aint that clean. (Aus aint that clean either. you learn to avoid salad rolls there also). Take me back to those 3rd world slums, where people have feelings,but not itchy anuses.
