    Lists of Heads of Government and Heads of State

    Correct, apart from Bede Clifford, who became a Governor, but I just like the name 'Bede'. The only ones I found but didn't mention were Rupert Haggen (CCF politician in British Columbia) and Angela Richardson (became a Tory MP this last December).

    Looking for ideas on the Imperial Federation concept

    New Zealanders were potentially one of the most anglophilic populations, despite or possibly because of the distance aspect - we only started dropping RP-esque accents on television in the late 70s and 80s. A lot of this was down to economics and, to a lesser extent, defence: Britain was the...

    From Garth Marenghi's Darkplace, fuck you.
