New Zealand is a country for the rich and wealthy first. What is presented is false. The welfare state is residual and under almost constant attack from right wingers. There is a pervasive feel of self-interest and greed im NZ. A smug self satisfaction is evident. Many of the wealthy live in elite suburbs, for instance, in Christchurch, Merivale or Fendalton. New Zealand has no written constitution.

New Zealand has no written constitution. The most important statutory rights are found in the unentrenched New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990. These so-called rights have been overridden many times by various NZ Parliaments. As such, some have referred to NZ an a 'elective dictatorship'or "thin" democracy. It certainly lacks the rights of Canada. Canada having the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. New Zealand is a great nation 'if' you are rich, if not, watch out
