Ontelly

A Point of View - 09/04/2010


Simon Schama celebrates the distinctive history and culture of New Zealand and regrets any renewed talk of joining forces with Australia. While recognising the attractions of Australia's strong economy and way of life, he applauds the political traditions of New Zealand which was the first country to give women the vote and enshrined in law the rights of Maoris. The resulting society, more equal than many, should, he believes, be cherished and preserved.
