The 1901 Australian Constitution included provisions to allow New Zealand to join Australia as its seventh state, Would New Zealand benefit from being part of Australia or loss everything. What would this mean for Maori Land rights or New Zealand Immigration policy.

New Zealand and Australia are different nations. We aren't even all that similar.

I think New Zealand would lose out if we became a new state of Australia. We'd become like Tasmania; an overlooked, neglected backwater. We're too far away and wouldn't prosper within their economy. The talk of an ANZAC dollar is idiotic too, it would kill off everything we export.

I can't see what we'd gain from this foolishness either.

Very similar in many ways if you can't see that you must be blind

Would you care to elaborate to what I'm blinded to Tweeter?

There are some similarities between New Zealanders and Australians, which isn't surprising as we were both once colonies in the British Empire.
Aucklanders, who are far from typical New Zealanders, are very similar to Sydneysiders, who are far from typical Australians.
In recent years there's been more of a sports obsession in New Zealand like there is in Australia.

But really we don't have that much in common with the Ockers at all from what I see. At least nowhere neas as much as we have with South Africans. I'm not certain if we've got more in common with the Aussies than we do the English. The Brash outspoken Aussie nature is in contrast to the aloof observant kiwi. New Zealand does not have a mainstream culture that is based around soap operas and celebrity obsession. The values of New Zealand is very much Anglo-Saxon protestant whereas Australia seems to be Irish or Scottish Catholic.

I suppose we've got more in common with the Aussies than the Cannucks. Perhaps you should ask whether this feeling of brotherhood is something you feel or is just some load of balls you've been brought up to believe. When you spend time with them you start seeing that you're 'un-Australian'.

For a start if it wasn't for Auckland New Zealand would be nothing. The culture in NZ and OZ is very much the same always has been and always will be. The sooner NZ and OZ are the same country the better off we will be."The values of New Zealand is very much Anglo-Saxon protestant" WTF ???

You're really shooting your mouth off boy and have no idea what you're talking about. I have Irish on both my mothers and fathers side. Yes my father is Australian but his father was from Christchurch. Yes some of my ancestors were convicts sent to NSW between 1788 and 1818 but that's on my mothers side and she was born in Auckland as was her mother. I wonder how many Kiwis have a Grandparent of great Grandparent who came from Australia. I wonder how many Kiwis are decedents of convicts . My bet quite a few.

New Zealand has become a hippy like commune if Australia wanted to take it over they could just walk right in there and no one would stop them.
