A head of State who can represent New Zealand to the world
Australia's Governor-General is off to China next week. She will be representing Australia. It's only been since the 1980s that Governors-General in both Australia and New Zealand have traveled overseas to represent both countries.
These trips highlight the absurdity of the Governor-General for modern, mostly independent democracies such as Australia and New Zealand. We deserve a head of State actually able to represent us, not simply the conduit to the head of State.
