Re: This isn't easy

I have OZ PR subject to living in the state of Victoria. For Sydney, this wouldn't be any use so I'd have to invoke my SCV me and the kids and my wife would have to apply for the spouse visa.

I was trying to counter the poster's views about muslims entering a country being a bad thing by giving a positive example, albeit historic. Oh, well...back to the thread topic :o

Re: How to change NZ?

Yeah, the Spanish should have kept them out back in 700 A.D. too.
