Mike Moore Visits La Trobe

Standard

Mike Moore, former Prime Minister of New Zealand (albeit fleetingly) gave a public lecture at La Trobe today, which I was most lucky to attend. He was quite erudite in his discussion. I was particularly impressed with how he handled a question from the floor regarding the hypothetical of a full political union of Australia and New Zealand, by saying that he thought the two countries had ‘become closer by staying apart’.
