Kiwi.. you have to be fair, I own land in the west and in China , the Chinese land is leased for a ...
Well, that's democracy, having a party which wishes to become the 51st state on the US but that is never going to happen!
No, the city of London doesn't rule or control us and nor does the british PM of the day. HM, The Queen does have the head of state role in NZ and she can, should she wish, exercise a fair bit of power, just as she can in Australia, Canada and the UK, but she doesn't.
As for the land rules, well, my family have owned a fairly significant slice of NZ for over a century and half and we're in no danger of losing it so, I don't get how you lost your 1000 acres, which isn't a whole helluva lot anyway when you think about it......compared to my family land anyway.
As for the 50 years in China, the land is leased for that long. If the original leasee passes away, is the balance of the lease passed on or do the inheritors get an automatic new 50 year lease? I am rather dubious about that!
For the record, I dislike MMP and GST as well.
