You know the country you live in is pretty safe when the front page headline of our capital city's newspaper involves a boy being suspended from school for not having his hair cut.

DravidDavid: Everything is great unless you live in West Auckland where someone is murdered almost every week within a 1 kilometer radius of your house.


Oooh, I do!

Yeah, I'm moving.

Azzura: It is all a matter of perspective....

Ask someone living in the Syria, Iraq, Israel, or the Gaza Strip, just how bad is it in New Zealand.


Pffffft. They can't even get UFB in Outram!

Things always look bad here when you view NZ inc through online news sites if you're living elsewhere on the globe.
Unless we're winning in the rugby or Americas cup; which lets the press show the owsumeness of middle earth; we're portrayed as unfocussed lemmings looking for a reason to swarm.

Thank his goodness for the big yellow ball in the sky.....

We don't get hurricanes, minimal small, rare tornadoes. No man eating animals, no snakes, not even sure if there is a lethal spider here. No one wants to invade or terrorise us. 
Taking political news with a grain of salt, I think we are pretty well ok here, the size and remoteness has benefits.

Pretty soon we're going to have live Moa wandering the Western hills, Whatever government we get next, we're screwed, I just knocked a coffee on my keyboard, Kim Dotcom is still popular, TV is monopolized by sky and West Auckland is turning into South Central LA.

For the love of God send help!

I am the opposite (Kiwi living in Oz).

Not sure where the OP is coming from, and NZ is looking pretty good at the moment. Economy seems to be ticking along nicely, and while I have a number of gripes with the current National government, compared to the situation in Australia, NZ is looking pretty good!
