A transtasman war of words has broken out, just days before Aussies and Kiwis mark Anzac Day, after a New Zealand journalist labelled the Diggers lazy "bludgers'' and "thieves'' in a radio broadcast.

Queensland RSL chairman Terry Meehan told Australian media he was outraged by the comments made by NBR journalist Jock Anderson and freelance journalist Josie McNaught on Radio New Zealand last week.

And while one of the journalists stands behind his comments, the other says she has been misquoted in Australian media.

MARK COLVIN: Days before ANZAC (Australia New Zealand Army Corp) Day, a veteran New Zealand journalist has dismissed the diggers as essentially lazy and excellent black marketeers and thieves.

Jock Anderson's comments during a radio panel discussion have not gone down well with Australian veterans' groups or talkback radio hosts.

But Mr Anderson defends what he said. He says his opinion was based on interviewing New Zealand veterans over the years and he couldn't think of a better time to discuss the ANZAC legend.

PM criticises 'offensive' comments about Australian soldiers
Prime Minister John Key has rejected comments made by a Kiwi journalist about Australian soldiers in World War I.

There has been a storm of controversy since National Business Review journalist Jock Anderson made the comments on a Radio New Zealand programme discussing a book by Australian historian and former army officer Graham Wilson.

"They've been essentially lazy bludgers, some of them, and excellent black marketeers, scavengers, poachers and thieves," Anderson said. "Occasionally, they've actually been quite good soldiers. But there's no way they can hold a candle, in my opinion, to the Kiwis."
