So, we Yanks vote this in, do we get 6 new states and a territory? Will the ACT just become part of NSW?

With at least four 13,000' runways.

Kingsford Smith will become recreational aircraft only while large parts of west and south Sydney will be flattened to make way for a proper international airport.

Nice to see the voting webpage working. If that was the UK and the vote was against the government, it would fail 90% of the time.

Think I'm being cynical ?

There's a Downing Street petition running at the moment to ask for release of government papers regarding the Shrewsbury 24, which the present Tory government has sealed until the year 2021 because of 'national security'.

So far the website has had 50,000 visitors but only registered 15,000 "yes" votes. Downing Street has admitted there's a problem with voting on the website, but not fixed it.

I don't why we even need to vote. Half of Generation Y already thinks Australia is the 51st State - and a percentage of the young crims the Police pick up, start yelling, "I claim the 5th", as soon as the Cops collar them. :rolleyes:''

Besides, what dropkick picked the Koala as the emblem of Australia? The koala is a souvenir-company driven tactic, not an official one.
Perhaps someone needs to be reminded that our coat of arms consists of the Kangaroo and the Emu - as symbols that can only ever move forward - and both of which, can kick some arse!! :suspect:

Don't forget that New Zealand has the right to hold a referendum on accession to the the Oz Commonwealth any time they fancy, and the Australians have to take them if the Kiwis vote "yes". And you might as well throw Samoa in at the same time

Don't wanna devalue our dollar to match the greenback.

But buying Apple goodies might become a bit cheaper.

The price of not only goodies and but essentials like food and housing and clothes and electricity and water and pretty much anything else you can possibly imagine including your vices just got more affordable. Plus, you can actually find varieties of products including cheese. You can even still have your filthy vegamite.

The Ozzies will have to learn what it's like to be able to freely trash-talk people in government and have the ablity to look up on the internet to see if a convicted sexual predator is living in the neighbourhood.

Petrol would be cheap and once you realized you didn't have to be a slave to public transport and the housing prices surrounding it, you could build roads and afford your own cars and live freely where you wanted to instead of trying to huddle around train and bus lines.

You would also be free from your government's propoganda machine that tells you every day you should feel guilty for driving those cars, drinking water, using your clothes dryer, and doing other everyday things people do while still being able to sleep at night.

Go out and buy a 4-inch stove bolt with a nut screwed half ways down it and weld it on the front as a hood ornament. See how many people recognize what it is. ;)

Of course it's a disgrace, and of course you have cars. There's only about 5 cities on the planet that have public transport that isn't a disaster and none of them are in Oz. But that doesn't stop your pols from trying to make you think you should idealize being herded onto it and make you feel guilty for being free to drive your cars. And to show they mean business, they kill you on the petrol tax, reggo fees, etc etc. as if owning a car is some kind of luxury, and heaven forbid you have to pay for downtown parking. They don't even pretend the cost of parking isnt raised to try and get you not to drive, they come right out and tell you.

Once your government is replaced with ours you can drive around feeling guilt-free in a nicer vehicle that costs less to operate and own. You can use the money you save to buy a few guns, twice the groceries you're used to, and still have plenty left over to run loads and loads of wet laundry in a clothes dryer instead waiting for a nice enough day to hang it out on a line. You're whole definition of what constitutes "Middle Class" will change for the better. You'll be better off, and any politician trying to shove a carbon tax down your national throat by claiming you'll "lead the world" will be committing political suicide. Won't that feel nice?

One other thing, unless you're a conspiracy nutter.as part of America you can kind of claim you landed on the moon
