Interesting how this particular subject was bought to light some years ago and then squashed…and now it comes to light, yet again!
Interesting again though, if you read the preamble of the “Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act” you will notice that New Zealand is listed as a “colony” of Australia.
Read for yourself:
COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CONSTITUTION ACT An Act to constitute the Commonwealth of Australia [9th July 1900] 6. "The Commonwealth" shall mean the Commonwealth of Australia as established under this Act. "The States" shall mean such of the colonies of New South Wales, New Zealand, Queensland, Tasmania, Victoria, Western Australia, and South Australia, including the northern territory of South Australia, as for the time being are parts of the Commonwealth, and such colonies or territories as may be admitted into or established by the Commonwealth as States; and each of such parts of the Commonwealth shall be called "a State". Can anyone help to explain this one?? Australia-and-New-Zealand-could-adopt-single-currency.html
