Oz there have been protests held on the 26th since the 1930s. It hasn't just come up now, it's been going on for ages, it's pretty telling that you're only just noticing it now. 

It wasn't just the actual murder of Aboriginals by the British, it was the fact they brought diseases with them that also decimated their population.
I think it's also pretty interesting that you are trying to put blame on to the Indigenous people for violence between them and the British. Would you have tried to blame Australians for killing Japanese people if they invaded Australia in WW2? 


Warren Mundine is a dead set hypocrite. He wrote this  article this time last year, but now because the greens have made it a policy he is criticising it?

"All Australians, including indigenous Australians, should be able to celebrate our country, its achievements and unique identity. The sentiments expressed on Australia Day are good and they’re sentiments most indigenous people share. But we can’t celebrate unity on a day representing conflict and conquest.

I want Australia Day moved — not because I don’t want to celebrate Australia but because I do."
 

The nation is obviously already divided on this. Changing the date won't make it worse. In 2 years no one would give a **** because people would realise nothing had actually changed.

As long as they do this properly and make the date of the new Republic in summer I think it's the best idea. 

Plebiscite needed to decide?

 

 

that's when the trouble started....

I've seen a flag that was the Eureka flag but in the aboriginal flag colours. Looked good.


Can't do that. The CFMEU would exercise their power of veto via Blinky Bill.

Well I for one reckon the date should stay right where it is.

 

The only people who seem to care about it, are the greens, a small bunch of lunatics, who spend their time in Canberra trying to find a way to be noticed.

 

They don't give a flying fark about aborigines, about Torres Strait Islanders, or about white English descended Aussies.

 

They just care about saving their own skins for the next election, and will jump on any bandwagon, or any lunatic idea that gives them a chance to get in front of the cameras, or indeed a microphone.

 

Changing the date will do absolutely nothing for the integration of aboriginal Australia into a white man's modern world ...... as saying "sorry" has already shown us.

 

The government has apologised .... and nothing has changed. The government granted them land rights ......... and nothing has changed .......... so how is possibly changing the date of a public holiday going to make any difference?

 

Like I said earlier its just the next in long line of stupid ideas put forth by the irrelevant greens, in an effort to be noticed. Treat the bastards with ignore until the next election and then chuck em out on their over-paid arses I say.

 

Just my thoughts .... ;)

As mentioned many times I have a simple solution without any political or racist issues. Just declare Jan 26th as *Mouldy Day.

Born at Nottingham Hospital on Jan 26th 1951 in both UK and Australian time.

The archetypal migrant. Left Tilbury England on December 23rd 1961. Spent Christmas Day vomiting in French waters. Arrived in Melbourne on Jan 21st 1962.

Lived in Dame Edna's Moonee Ponds in 1962 and lost his accent and patriotism within that year.

Played footy and cricket, drank to excess, streaked and generally exhibited Australian behaviour throughout my twenties.

After that I became a model citizen generating millions of dollars of export income.

Friday is a day to celebrate Australia and all the *Mouldys who have enjoyed the growth of a great country.
