A recently released report from international accounting group Deloitte warns NZ about complaceny regarding growing corruption in the country. The report says

NZ has long been rated as one of the least corrupt countries in the world by Transparency International. Currently we sit at no 2. Here are some facts that I think might help explain why our corruption rate is rising.

Something else we can pin on the multi-culturalists who are throwing our traditional culture down the drain with no mandate to do so.
