Just the level that varies...

Nice to know now we've sent New Zealand's most corrupt politician packing on a UN sinecure perceptions of our international standing have improved. Such that we stand isolated at the top of a list.

What is more cause for concern is the true level of corruption, not an airy fairy perception. It may be that NZ has stood still whilst the rest have deteriorated.

Corruption is operationally defined as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain

Sounds like politics business as usual. He was 'only guilty of helping, yer Honour'...

Almost as foolhardy as more "kiwis" trusting greens over (the former) Act to run the economy-
