    Arguing the point that it is going to create jobs is weak. There is far more valuable things these guys could be focusing on - well said "Scorpion Stinger" focus spent in the right areas that would noticeably increase tourism, be it by word of mouth are the ways to go about it... ie creating and maintaining the outdoors with paths, public toilets, sculptures(culture so it be) - that would be focusing on the 'right' not to mention create many justified jobs along the way.
    But as the article states, jobs is not the focus, it is as the three points above say - read ask your self if any of these points are really taken care of by naming the North Island Jack Sparrow and the South Island Terry Tough-Nuts? Now consider how much money is spent in marketing this outside of New Zealand? This is all money exiting our economy....

    I no longer live in Aotearoa [NB: spell check in this forum doesn't even recognize the word]. I still call NZ home and love it to bits. However for every non kiwi not living in NZ, none know NZ by its maori name....

    I could go on but it's friday night :P More about Re-naming the North and South Islands, why?
