Australia Day Disgrace

Via Tim, Australian PM Julia Gillard and Opposition leader Tony Abbot were trapped by a mob of several hundred today in a restaurant where they were celebrating the founding of their wonderful country.

This is a complete and total disgrace, and I would think the local police have got some serious explaining to do.

    Looking at the pictures, the description of the protesters as ‘aboriginal’ is risible.

    I saw this on the news last night (I am in Melbourne at present) and couldn’t believe it. It gets better: no charges will be filed. I don’t believe Native American protesters in the States would have gotten away with something like this.

    “I am in Melbourne at the moment” she just casually tosses into the conversation!

  4. “I am in Melbourne at present”

    I’m sorry to learn that.
