    I cannot tell if you are referring to excessive regulations for gasfitting or just poor regulation.

    Never been to downunder - I do have friends and relatives in both Aus and NZ including Melbourne - maybe will make it out there for a visit one day.

      Been to both AZ and NZ 3x.

      During the rail transit strike of 1990, they welded the trains wheels to the tracks in the middle of the city in Melbourne.

      Wow - you must like it if you went 3x. Thought about a trip just before the pandemic hit and then did not travel anywhere for the last 2 years.
