Helen Clark, please explain.
The police in Thailand use missiles. I recently discovered that the plastic casings for these missiles are made in a factory in Auckland, and packed into boxes marked 'missiles'. Does that sound weird to you? Why is our government allowing our manufacturers to get involved in selling arms?

Last night on the street outside our apartment, some drunken fool was playing the bagpipe, about 3am. It was not a pretty sound. Too much xmas spirit.

UPDATE - I got a comment from Coder that NZs arms industry earns more than twice in exports than our wine industry. I will try and verify that information.
