I think you take the term regime differently from me. 

To me it means current government or ruling party - nothing to do with dictatorships or oppressing countries.

You have taken my comment completely out of context and turned it right around to mean something completely different. i was only stating why it is not plausible for New Zealand to make a bid for the Commonwealth Games in 8 years time, given how things currently are in the country. Yes most countries are facing the same issues, but to the outside world they see and hear of New Zealand being a country that during COVID times is very successful in most things. But that is far from true.

Auckland? 

It makes me wonder wtf the CGF were actually doing for the past few years in the lead up to 2019 when the 2026 host was meant to be selected. I just can't shake the feeling they were not doing anything proactive at all (especially when you read that there is interest from cities - it just seems like they were not engaging ). 

They're very lucky for the can-do attitude of one Australian state, otherwise it would be all over.

The CGF would have left the games in Birmingham for '26 had've Victoria passed.

As for Auckland, far too late for that city to throw up a hurried bid, even with regional centres, Hamilton, Tauranga and Whangarei able to help out.

The Commonwealth itself, we are stepping into uncharted territory as QEII only has a handful of years left of life.

This was her favourite thing and she the reason why it hangs on. We have seen the visit of the Cambridges to the West Indies ended up being a PR disaster with an Empire like air to the tour pretty much pushing those respective islands towards republics.

Hosting the games at the moment is a big money risk with little gain.

Well, when a member of the Commonwealth - the Solomon Islands - has effectively pledged allegiance to the CCP I can't really see that happening. 

The group of countries doesn't include the Solomon Islands.

Looks like Hamilton 2030 will have many venues spread out in its plans. Have head aquatics would be held at a new venue in the KW metro area (about 50 mins away from Hamilton). Originally diving was supposed to be in Toronto and a new venue was to be built for swimming at McMaster. Hamilton 2030 is also considering international proposals to co-host the games.

International? Where? Jamaica? 

I like the idea of a Southern Ontario regional Games in a similar vein to Victoria 2026. Focus can be on Hamilton but would be a waste not to utilize Toronto or Waterloo.
