How Australia surrendered to the wowsers

Today is ANZAC Day in Australia and New Zealand. It seems an appropriate time to reflect on what Australia was and what it has become. (Sorry Kiwis: can’t comment on you this time, though I wish I could. Please forgive me for not coming this time – especially you, Josie Jackson, my Official Biographer and Kiwi wunderkind).

I said the other day what a marvellous achievement it was, the way those early generations of Aussies turned a relentless hell into a fair approximation of paradise on earth. What I see now, however, is a fair proportion of the current generation doing their damnedest to reverse the process.

You can’t move a car to a different state without having to submit it to about A$ 400 worth of checks to make sure it’s roadworthy….

  1. Looks like your research for this article was done by the writers of the YOUNG ONES ! Load of flippant crap !

  2. without even hearing your voice – just reading the style – you come across as a precious little camp twat with a massive “look at me” complex. For the sake of a lack of spitoons please crawl back into the cupboard.

  3. Heard you for the first time yesterday on radio in Melbourne – couldn’t help passing you off as a total whack job. Total waste of time.

  4. I saw you James on The Bold Report today (29/4/2012), and I said about time someone like you came forward and exposed all these money grabbing liers about global warming. I never believed it in the first time I heard about it, afterall living in Australia we always have droughts, floods, heat, cold and anything else mother nature throws our way, been happening since the world began.

  5. Looks like you’ve offended some of the precious little ABC toadies below. Keep at it James. The Left in Australia is going down the gurgler, so they’re hypersensitive at the moment. Sorry the ABC couldn’t be fair with their interviewing. They only want to hear one line and nothing else. What possessed you to go into the lion’s den like that? You did well under extremely trying circumstances. Thanks for visiting, many of us are grateful you have taken time to come here.
