So when are you useless Aussies going to claim New Zealand as part of Australia so Maoris can stop claiming everything and our politicians giving our country away?
We need a bit of Aussie racism.

Just days from Anzac Day, our brave World War I Diggers have been branded "lazy'', "bludgers'' and "thieves'' by panellists on New Zealand's government-funded Radio National.
Fair cop I'd say.

John M. Antill - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In October 1914, Antill was appointed to the AIF as Brigade Major of the 3rd Light Horse Brigade, under the command of Colonel F. G. Hughes, an experienced regular brigade major. Antill embarked for Egypt on 25 February 1915. In May, Antill and the brigade moved to Anzac for dismounted action. During the fierce fighting at The Nek, Antill, now in temporary command of the Brigade, refused a request from the commander of the 10th Light Horse to cancel the third wave. Colonel Hughes had gone forward to call off the attack, leaving Antill in charge. Due to a communications breakdown, Antill believed Hughes had gone forward to lead the Brigade forward and therefore ordered the attack to continue. Hughes reached the line in time to call off the fourth wave. Antill took over command of the brigade in September 1915 when Hughes was evacuated due to illness. Antill remained with the brigade until the end of the campaign, though the brigade never took part in another major battle.

Didn't Patton just hate it when the Americans had to give overall command of the Ardennes to Monty 'cause they couldn't cope... Mwaha.RAC(TA) - 2006-2009

Sir Walter Raleigh declared in the early 17th century that "whoever commands the sea, commands the trade; whosoever commands the trade of the world commands the riches of the world, and consequently the world itself." This principle is as true today as when uttered, and its effect will continue as long as ships traverse the seas."
