    On NZ’s UN performances, they should be denied entry. Israel still has a NZ ambassador?

    The Governor General of Australia should attend such activities instead of the PM.

    Mr Turnbull currently has enough on his plate governing Australian (not very well either) than attending yet another commemorating a long passed battle during WW1.

    I have great admiration of Lt Gen Sir Harry Chauvel though and the Desert Mounted Corps he commanded by the end of that war in 1918.
