"The South African migrant who was told he was ''too fat'' to live in New Zealand has been ''hurt and disheartened'' by the nasty reaction of many New Zealanders to his plight.
Albert Buitenhuis and his wife, Marthie, have lived and worked in Christchurch for six years but are now facing deportation.
Immigration New Zealand (INZ) has denied the couple visas because, along with a knee condition, Albert's obesity is too much of a potential strain on the country's health system..." (bold mine)
I go past the local WINZ (or their latest incarnation) office most days and see plenty of bloated slugs that make him look like friggin' Tinkerbell!
If we expelled ALL the obese immigrants, half the bloody Pacific islands would sink!
