From The Hutch

Well, we have had a weird week of news this week.

Let’s start off with our new tourism minister, Stuart Nash, who is planning to ban the hiring-out of non-self-contained vans.

I’m pretty sure non-self-contained vans are actually just called vans, but aside from the obvious impact on people who want to move a scotch chest from one place to the other, it seems like a good idea.

Nash is suggesting we turn our backs on boorish budget tourists who just want to travel the country and have fun. Picture young Kiwis tripping around Europe only with cool accents.

Anyone who has ever stopped in a highway rest area for a pee behind a bush will be familiar with just how many of these people have been stopping for a pee behind a bush – or something more serious.

Every scenic spot in the country is littered with budget people, their basic vans and makeshift clotheslines, displaying tie-died garments.


Anyway Stuart wants to squeeze more bucks out of a better class of people and the best way to do that is to ban the van. No van – no budget holiday.

Unless you have a tent,........
