    Questions about an Australia with more nonwhite labourers

    There’s a TL I have on the backburner that I think about from time to time, with an American Revolutionary War POD, and lately I’ve been thinking a lot about Australia ITTL.

  8. WI: Indentured Labor in Australia/No “Working Man’s Paradise”

    This straddles the line of post and pre 1900 but the POD is before so it goes here I figure. By the early 20th century Australia settled on a policy that restricted immigration to whites only, deported remaining migrant workers, instituted protectionist trade policies, and allowed for strong...

    With any pod after 1918, how can we have relations breakdown between Australia and New Zealand to the point where both countries are at war with each other in the late 30's or early 40's? Part of the challenge is that neither country had and actually fascist movement so are there any...
