Mythbusting – James Cameron will live here so that’s alright

During the debate over whether or not we should allow Chinese companies to invest in New Zealand there was another case of selling land to foreigners. that of James Cameron, a Canadian. According to the racists in this country is ok for a white Canadian to buy a farm because he is going to live here and Shanghai Pengxin shouldn’t be allowed to buy a farm because they are Chinee rapists of land.

The Labour party, in order to cover up their racism against Chinese, claimed that James Cameron’s purchase was ok because he was going to live here. they have repeated this ad nauseum.

Well that myth has been well and truly busted with the requirement being that he only has to live here for a paltry 44 days.

He says he wants to make New Zealand home, but the maker of history’s two biggest films will have to spend just 44 days here a year – and he doesn’t have to live here at all in the first year.

Newly released documents show James Cameron – a self-styled “film-maker, explorer and technology entrepreneur” – will need to spend only 88 days over two years to fulfil his residency requirements.

Hell, to maintain residency for your tax status you have to stay longer than that…I think 183 days.

Labour’s argument is in tatters and now with the Court ruling and this sham of a residency claim James Cameron might have to abandon his purchase.
