Imagine how Aborigine's would be living now if British settlers had not colonised? A continuation of hand to mouth existence as nomadic hunter-gatherers? Inter-tribal warfare and genocide? Eliminated as part of an Indonesian / Chinese / Japanese / other takeover? We have to wonder if they are better off now?

That about sums it up Paul.

Good one Paul.

Can we change the date that Whitlam gave that handful of dirt to the Aborigine...I am offended by that.

Well done. The clothing is a bit overdone though. Up until about the mid 50's they were all (generally speaking) starkers.

Good stuff! Zanetti is firing delicious shots, and they're hitting the target every time. Hanging out for the next one...and the next...etc, etc

Exactly Paul.


Wouldn’t matter what date it was, they’d still be whinging! A classic example of Monty Python “ What have the Romans ever done for us?”

Bang. Nailed it, Paul. Happy Australia Day!

That should be a t-shirt.

Ah Zanetti, you have done it again.
