clement attlee, if it weren't for australia, then it's quite probable that the *real* clement attlee, aka lord attlee, british prime minister from 1945 to 1951, would not have had a credible basis for doing things in britain like cementing in place the nhs or effecting the groundwork for social welfare within britain, and britain would still be looking like a charles dickens novel.
First of all this thread is about the Australian politics of today, not the history of Australian politics. I'm well aware of the contribution Australia made to World War Two 7 decades ago. What I said was intended as a joke. I'm sorry if you're offended, but please don't take that seriously.

Yes, of course you could. It's called freedom of speech and freedom of expression.
Australia is better off than nz in every imaginable way. How is that even a question?
To be honest, I've never been to Australia or New Zealand. It was just meant as a silly joke.
