"Because thousands of children go to school hungry and thousands are clinically obese, on average this is still the best place in the world to raise kids." 13 February, 2007
Reference Number: DCDL-0002945
The image shows MP for Education, Steve Maharey, commenting that since thousands of children in New Zealand go to school hungry and thousands are clinically obese, on average this still makes New Zealand the best place in the world to raise children. There is a little badge saying 'Stevie Wonder' in front of the minister. Stevie Wonder is a blind musician; maybe Steve Maharey is displaying a type of blindness. Refers to a row about what National leader, John Key has labelled 'the New Zealand underclass' and about the number of children who go to school hungry; also the obesity problem in New Zealand.
