Lets look at why New Zealand is constantly drained by greed for profit Australian bankers who own NZ bank businesses...its common sense there are no laws for business, banks are instructed by queen elizabeths coat of arms with free rule & reign here. How do we address this injustice? Simply By replacing Queen Elizabeth and reviewing her coat of arms for replacement in order to take banks by the balls in a form of arrest. Put limits on profits, promote NZ local owned banks, to send the greedy adults packing! As for Treaty settlements to Indigenous Maori Tribes...ALL FULL cash payments should be in the 'English pound' currency to be converted to NZ$, even compensation in Aussie currency, UNDERSTANDING that New Zealand was purposely placed on a lower dollar value system by English Australian Legislators in a history strategy. This crown arrogance will cost its empire a collapse 2016!!
