Prime Minister Tony Abbott has continued his campaign to entirely destroy the small amount of goodwill he has with the Australian people by convincing the Queen to make her own husband – a man best known here for asking an aboriginal businessman “Do you still throw spears at each other?”- a knight of the Order of Australia. Such fun.
Australia Day is always an interesting day, commemorating, as it does, the brutal invasion of Australia.
Still, most Australians seem to deal with it by simply treating it as a day off. Barbecues will be lit, much beer will be drunk, and the Triple J Hottest One Hundred will be played on radios everywhere. 2 million votes were cast this year for the best tunes of the year, and you can listen along too, starting right now. Get yourself a drink, listen in – it’s just like being an Australian.
