New Zealand’s ‘‘100% Pure’’ brand­ing has been ques­tioned in­ter­na­tion­ally. Prime Min­is­ter John Key was grilled about the brand­ing in re­la­tion to the state of our wa­ter­ways in an in­ter­view by BBC cur­rent af­fairs show Hardtalk host Stephen Sackur, while Mr Key was in Lon­don af­ter the royal wed­ding. Com­ments in a New Zealand news­pa­per by Dr Mike Joy that New Zealan­ders were ‘‘delu­sional about how clean and green we are’’, with half of our lakes and 90 per­cent of our low­land rivers clas­si­fied as pol­luted, were dis­missed by Mr Key who said Dr Joy was only one opin­ion.
