Re: New Zealand...fvcked

I wonder what systems they have in place to manage the shared spaces and if they do a clean down or similar between streams. During the last outbreak one case was a contractor who is thought to have gotten it from a lift that had been used by a positive case 20 minutes or so earlier. In this case t...

Re: Australian republic....gooooooooooooone

Just switch the name governor general to president and you change from parliamentary monarchy to parliamentary republic To do so would require a referendum.
