McCormick said the New Zealand rules allowed for considerable discretion in regard to the intent of the regulations and what is acceptable for compliance, and that many of the provisions in the New Zealand regulations were not consistent with Australian legislative standards, definitions, and terminology.
Gentlemen this is called in psycholgical terms; "projection" - the attribution to others of the condition you suffer from. Thus a congenital liar will brand critics as "liars", the envious will accuse others of "envy" and so on.

The problem with the Australian rules is precisely what McCormick accuses the NZ regulations of, to whit, the Australian regulations " considerable discretion in regard to the intent of the regulations and what is acceptable for compliance" - this is the source of almost all our misery.
