    I'm reading Michael King's History of New Zealand. I now consider myself ignorant to NZ History. It's a big eye opener and a very very good read.

    I read that earlier in the year ... it's a good read, and quite balanced. I was quite surprised at how little I knew about New Zealand history.

    Not the comedian Mike King?

    Post some random history that you think people may not know.

    The Eating Media Lunch team are making / have made a documentary series "The unofficial history of NZ" (or something).

    Should be hoot when it screens next year.

    In the last ten years crime has increased 120%.

    In the next ten years crime is set to increase a further 200%.

    Oh, it's you.

    Can you define "crime"? Because your statements are way to broad to have any meaning whatsoever.

    It's very easy to talk in sweeping soundbites, and the accuse anyone who disagrees of being deluded or unable to face reality.
