Preach it, G.O.B. Very well put indeed.

I agree, very well put. To me, Australia Day should be a day of reflection on all the work we still have to do to make up for what happened on the first 'Australia Day' all those years ago... and absolutely not a day for prancing around in flag-festooned garb.

I think that there are a lot of people that feel the same and I am hoping that the craziness will passs by. The vision of minus undies gave me a giggle

I agree too. I love the idea of celebrating that we live in a beautiful country with amazing people, but not at the expense of the indigenous community, and not as an excuse for bogans to cover their cars and selves in flags and fight, get drunk and make the flag a yobo symbol. I think that a change in the date would be a start.

I don't think you are a grumpy old biddy!

There's another old biddy waving over here. Although she usually comes over sooky old biddy when it comes to ordinary people doing the extraordinary.

Oh you say it very well. I am writing from over in the west of Oz, and we were cracking up on Tuesday spotting the various sizes of flags on all the cars on the roads. One ute had such a big one shoved on the front bonnet we were sure it must have been a serious driving hazard from flapping in front of the windscreen. The fireworks in Fremantle here in the evening were just lovely, so that was a nice part of the day - do you have a firework show in the evening of Australia day in Canberra?

Look at what you did, see all us grumpy old biddies coming out of the woodwork! I'm with you. Well said. Hoorah!

I agree wholeheartedly, whats wrong with being a G.O.B. anyway.....
