It's Australia Day
As though I needed an excuse to play my favourite youtube of 'Advance Australia Fair'. However, since I have only one reader and they are a little troubled, were I to believe the letters that arrive wrapped in tinfoil, I thought that I would hold off from doing that. Here, for your pleasure, is instead the Australian Cultural Attache to the Court of St James, Sir Leslie Patterson, holding forth in a segment from the Parkinson show many moons ago. If you do not like swearing, sexist imagery, smoking, drinking to excess, obesity, vulgarity or are possessed of a cast of mind somewhat distanced from the bien-pensant, look away now.
