What they really want is NZ's broadband. I could imagine that video took hours to upload on their Australian connection.

I got a laugh out of it.

Look up "A Tourism Video for Australia (Made by a New Zealander)" on YouTube.

They're just pulling our pud.  NZ would benefit way more from some alliance than Australia would, I'd vote for it though.

Nice to see them taking the p*ss out of themselves for a change.

 

 

 

I'd probably vote for a merge (if it ever came to that - not likely though IMO).

In my opinion New Zealand would gain nothing from any merger and most likely be worse off.

 

We'd still be 4 to 5 million people on a group of islands 1200 nautical miles from Australia with the same issues we had before any merger, but now with a federal government that would have less knowledge of and less interest in our problems than any government we ever had in the past.

 

On top of that we'd be paying for another level of government than we have now and we'd be bound by their more over bearing legal system. I know from experience the Australians compare their aviation rules to ours and look at ours in envy as being much simpler to use and understand compared to theirs. The difference being a reflection of how the Australian legal system works compared to ours.
