One word: Dolly. 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. - andrew. -- Andrew Smith, Intheologus Lent: Living in Borrowed Time
