There is nothing, absolutely nothing, half so much worth doing, as simply messing about in boats

Fair Question, Mr. Erice - is a gringo allowed to comment on NZ politics?
Generally I'd say, only when asked; and only as a private citizen. Ms. Beresford did it as a high ranking diplomat.
I've tried to avoid telling non-USAeans what to do politically - Jeebus knows the US is no role model.
But there was that episode back in the 1960s when I was complicit in waging a thoroughly unjust and bloodily vicious war
against the Vietnamese people. My bad - that was much worse than anything Ms. Beresford has done.

you are right that a traditional diplomat
wouldn't use such strong language to rebuke another gov. (or political party?) publically
but i fear we live in non-traditional times
it's not me
it's the shiraz saying sh!t
