At the end of the day I think the majority of New Zealanders will agree with me that what the country needs most right now is a giant panda.
Those stuffed ones always go down well with children. Todd Barclay brings his to question time sometimes.
Of course there are costs involved in getting a live panda but we could bring the price down if we threw the Chinese a few kiwi.
New Zealand has an excellent track record in sending livestock overseas.
Many of the sheep we sent to Saudi Arabia are holding up well.
