I would like to reference your discussion about our prime minister being asked to choose between ‘sketi’ or beans.
My concern is you missed her point. The point at issue here is not one of taste or personal preference rather one of education.
JA’s visit to Watties was to ensure that when, in about 3 to 5 years, mortgage interest rates will be at 15.75%, inflation at 8.5%, and the Chinese will be collecting on their loan facility by taking all of our infrastructure, she needs to be ensure the Baked Beans and ‘sketti’ supply. After all, as it was in the 1970’s when we were as broke as we are about to become, there will once again be the NZ national dish.
