As you might have heard by now, WikiLeaks has found a few, a very few, cables related to New Zealand—and the main thing to notice is that there’s really nothing to notice. Which must really annoy Messrs Hagar and Locke, et al.
Highlights, such as they are:
- The NZ/US intelligence relationship “was fully restored on August 29, 2009 (which should not be acknowledged in public.”
- Americans find it “somewhat of a paradox” that a classical liberal and free marketeer could vote for the bill that decriminalized prostitution—which says more about American classical liberals than any kind of paradox.
- No-one mentioned who mentioned “gone by lunchtime.”
