Restricting the alphabet

Wanganui or Fonganueee - to be or not to be?

After a long ago colonisation by a race of worldly experience with a rich language and a 26 letter alphabet, modern New Zealanders are being asked to adopt an oral language of 5 vowels and 10 consonants.

The exercise over a change in name for Wanganui and subsequent clamour that will ensue for other changes will give the bureaucracy that is the Geographic Board a reason justifying their existence. Like the activist stirrers promoting the cause.

A kneecapping would be better now for both New Zealand and the economy, IMHO.

I know which language which I will be sticking with.
