Scoop Images: Peters Launches Hard-Hitting Immigration Policy

New Zealand First leader Winston Peters launched the party's predictably hard hitting immigration policy at a conservative Grey Power gathering at Orewa - the bastion of old-styled Torydom.

The party's policy includes a long term population strategy, a major fraud investigation unit and compulsory DNA testing - all points of a new five-point immigration plan.

1. Comprehensive Population Policy
2. Reform Immigration Service
3. Change Immigration Laws
4. Review Humanitarian Role
5. Industry Clean-up

    And wisely, no one from the amazingly delicious Sahara restaurant turned up either!

    Quiet and blue Orewa street.

    The picturesque Orewa beach.

Given the massive outpouring of public grief in Iran over the murder of Qassem Soleimani, some reciprocal action by Iran was necessary, but (so far) it has been almost entirely symbolic in nature...
