One thought on “The die is cast

  1. Why due you think the ‘obvious geographical division’ is a reason for bicameralism? For context, NZ’s European settlement was from the ports inland, and it was the centre of the North Island that was last settled by whites. There wasn’t even a Auckland-Wellington rail line (let along useful road) until 1909. After being in the majority during the 19th century gold rushes, South Islanders are now less than a quarter of the population.
    And the thought of an upper chamber on ethnic grounds horrifies me.
