    It's official - we are the worst visitors to Australia
    Saturday February 03, 2007

    It's official -- New Zealanders are the worst behaved visitors to Australia.

    Australian Department of Immigration statistics show that over a recent three-year period more New Zealanders were deported or "forcibly removed" from Australia than guests from any other nation.

    Almost half of the 84 people removed in 2005 were Kiwis.

    In 2004, 23 people out of 66 removed were from New Zealand and again in 2003, 54 out of 97 kicked out were New Zealanders.

    Following close behind through the airport departure gate were the British, with 13 thrown out in 2005, five in 2004 and five in 2003.

    Other poorly behaved nationalities -- though in much fewer numbers -- were the Malaysians, Vietnamese and Chinese.

    A department spokesman said crimes committed by the deported foreigners included aggravated sexual assault, manslaughter, armed robbery and receiving stolen goods.

    All of those shown in these statistics as having been deported had also served jail sentences in Australia before being shown the door.

    Guess there is some truth to a comment I heard a bus driver tell. [smiley=icon_wink.gif]

    Comparing Australia and New Zealand, he said that Kiwis moving over to Australia was the best thing that could happen to New Zealand. Why? Because it increased New Zealand's overall IQ, and decreased Australia's. [smiley=icon_biggrin.gif]

    Seems he forgot to take into consideration Australia's fondness at deporting.
