As today is Australia day, I was gonna write a post about the treatment of Aborigines, fascist immigration policies, and how any country that holds a man who abused crocodiles on T.V as a national hero, must be pretty fucked up. Then I remembered about Transportation and where the convict settlers were shipped over from and thought fuck it, I just can't be bothered, because all nation states oppress minorities, control their borders and the 'cult of the celebrity' is a global industry, so why pick on Australia ? cos it makes a change from America. Two countries with a shared history of being settled by those who weren't wanted by the British establishment. What does that tell us ? That Britain really was great ? I don't think so, because there is no common wealth.
