So far, the massed recreational wringing of hands has been about Jones'
indiscretion. But an actual statement describing the nature of the "ruination"
he alleges seems to be missing - as is any commentary suggesting that, any
possible (alleged) racism apart, there may actually **be** a "ruination"
problem that must be addressed.
I have no time whatever for Jones, but this looks like another instance where
easy targeting of a controversial messenger is simply too tempting to resist,
whereas the message itself is quietly slipped under counter and into the

It is all very well for staff at the University of Otago to defend
what they have been doing, but the damage was largely done by
education providers that ripped off students who had already been
ripped off by ïmmigratin advisers, ripped off by employers who
'helped' them pay for getting here and for providing them with the
ability to pay that money back . . ., lax immigration policy, lax
supervision of that policy, and inadequate policing of labour laws.
Thankfully some of the more egregious offernders were found out - some
of the education providers by better supervision of certificate
courses - and some of those providers rightly went bust. Butthe real
victomes were the Indian students - and immigrants from other
countries, but it seems the Indian immigration advisers; some in India
and some in New Zealand, were the major exploiters of young people.
So far from the Indian students wrecking our academic institutions, it
was the then New Zealand Government that allowed near unfettered
exploitation by private companies who put profit ahead of everything
else, including overseas students.
Irrelevant. Jones is a racist, simply true.
