I'm worried about how the new immigration law between Australia and NZ
will effect both countries. The number of New Zealanders moving to
Australia has vastly improved the intellectual levels of both countries.
My accent is General New Zealand but I'm mistaken for English often
enough that I suspect it's slightly cultured. It's not Broad NZEnglish
and no where as broad as Strine, which could be used as a runway, and
probably often is!
In actual fact I'm an advocate for the point of view the sooner NZ joins
the Australian Federation the better.
