and commits to paying nz taxpayers money to mugabe to stop the cricket tour..
i don’t want them to tour..but this is not the answer..
john campbell had some good points to make on this last night..

2)zimbabwe has no power..
3)china summarlly executes over 3,000 people per year..(on average..that’s 8 executions each and every day..)..they get to host the olympic games..
4) over 25, 000 iraqi civilians have been killed as a result of the american invasion of that country..
