Sydney: 26th January 2008

January 26, 2008 at 11:28 pm (Uncategorized) ()

Invasion Day, Australia Day or whatever day; all I can say is what is wrong with Waltzing Matilda? It should be our National Anthem; not that dirge that we have.

Poor old Paddy McGuinness died today. I notice that he was reported to have attended St Ignatius’ College, Riverview, which is true, but he finished his last two years of schooling at Sydney Boys’ High.

 Now that Paddy has gone this means that Phillip Adams is the sole man in black left in the Australian media.

Someone said to me the other day that Paddy had not always been an arch-conservative in his views. This must have been in the days when he was Bill Hayden’s economic adviser, whatever,  the print media is the less with the passing of Paddy.

Some thoughts on our National Day!
