Scott, Thomas 1947-: 'I want to assure the citizens of this wonderful little counrty, that I don't dislike all New Zealanders... - only the ones I've met so far...' 'Gosh..shucks, Paul...' Evening Post, 21 May 1993.

Scott, Thomas Joseph, 1947-

New Zealand prime minister Jim Bolger takes as a compliment Australian prme minister Paul Keating's insult. Exhibition caption reads - Paul Keating's outspokenness did not noticeably diminish during the Australian Prime Minister's visit to New Zealand in 1993. There was not a close relationship between Keating's Labour government and Jim Bolger's National one, and the Australians were impatient of what they perceived as New Zealand's dithering on defence and economic matters.
