This is mostly a blog about things to see and do in New Zealand beyond the most famous ones. I have, however, included a few posts on other New Zealand-related subjects from time to time. This is one of those.
In December of 2016, I wrote a post, you can see it below, entitled “New Zealand: The Lucky Country.” While the post talked about several New Zealand politicians, it was mostly about Bill English, who at that point had just become Prime Minister upon the resignation of Sir John Key. I went into a fair amount of detail on what I liked in Mr. English’s approach to politics. There is no need to repeat what I wrote then, though you may find it interesting if you have not read it before.
