Unfortunately the link ends with a 403 forbidden error for me.
I always hear good things coming from NZ. The shooting excepted which was an aweful tragedy, but then the government response was sensible. Some bigger countries should take notes. ☺

Foss? That's his name? 😆
@normandc yes. The irony wasn't lost on us :)
