As well covered in the media, Peter Thiel spent only 12 days in NZ before being granted citizenship. Apparently he’s our first ever secret “great ambassador” for NZ.
The Thiel case is inviting comparison with others. We’re denying citizenship to those who have lived here for 30 years. We’re ejecting an outstanding academic because of an autistic stepson. We’re deporting a blind 5 year old. We’re deporting those running a business here. And so on and so on.
Bill English is trying to spin away the obvious – that Thiel effectively purchased his NZ citizenship. A very clear case of one law for the rich. We need more transparency in the process.
