Angry Foreign affairs: extra Billion, like billion with a B!

Winnie looking for a cosy billion for foreign affairs: https://www.newsroom.co.nz/2018/05/0...-affairs-boost

Last time I checked the country didn't even have 5m people living here and our Pacific protectorate spanned a few Pacific atolls and an underwater volcano.

Wow "money for 50 extra diplomats", I wouldn't have thought that was a priority when there are nurses about to go on strike and hospitals falling apart.

Don't worry, I'm sure Mrs Blair will be along shortly to explain how Winnie creating 50 jobs for the boys who didn't quite make it to parliament at the election, is a good thing for the country.

I'd ask why we need an embassy in Sweden? I just tried to look up some numbers and the latest information I can find is 2015 from the International Organisation for Migration. 1135 New Zealand where living in Sweden and 1402 Swedish are living in New Zealand.

Perhaps it's the international geostrategic importance of Ikea or Abba?
