My response was initially more in regard to Bloody Sunday in Northern
Ireland and ensuing Irish "visitors". But, with regards to the other
Kahnawake etc, in Canada
Palm Island Riots etc, in Australia
NZ hasn't had much recently but they have had:
Wairau Affray, Flagstaff War, Hutt Valley Campaign, events at Bastion
Point in the 1970's etc,etc., NZ does tend to take things to court
As for the "dear Queen" being on the currency? Understandable as the
three listed have yet to gain their psychological independence. (I say
that speaking as a Canadian).
The US is as you say, different
This being my biased opinion.
What did you make of "Who's Britain is it anyway" on BBC2 last night?
Very British conclusion to the show I must say.
