AUS DAY DRINKS

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - OPINION -

WELL, it’s on again, thanks to the peo­ple on the Fre­man­tle City Coun­cil who want to cel­e­brate Aus­tralia Day on Jan­uary 28 and not the 26th.

What’s wrong with these peo­ple? We spend so much time and ef­fort on try­ing to bring us all to­gether as a one peo­ple. Their dumb de­ci­sions do the com­plete op­po­site and at­tempt to split us apart.

I have many Abo­rig­i­nal friends and shared some won­der­ful times to­gether. I have told my Ital­ian mates we could be cousins, as the Ro­mans in­vaded Eng­land and if I am cor­rect tried to in­vade Scot­land for about 40 years.

Nearly ev­ery coun­try has had in­va­sions over his­tory, so the best thing we can do is have a few drinks on Aus­tralia Day.

Yes, mis­takes were made but let’s get on with liv­ing.

Oh well, a Merry Xmas to ev­ery­one and a safe new year.

CHAR­LIE GIB­SON, Fal­con.
