    Doesn't that Aussie Flag suck with the Union Jack on it?

    Agreed.

    I love the fact that some pommies get defensive when you bag the queen. What has she or her family done to deserve to be where they are? Nothing.

    Yet these fools admire the bludgers.

    when we do become a republic i think the flag should just replace the union jack with the aboriginal flag but im not sure if people will read to much into it from a political point of view.

    Why Fluff?

    They consider themselves to be another nation so why should we just replace one nations flag with another in that spot?

    If we are going to go for a new flag it should be a brand new one, incorporate the aboriginal colours or an emblem representing them by all means.

    What you are talking about is simply replacing the european heritage with the aboriginal heritage, it should be inclusive of all.

    I don't want the Aboriginal flag on the aussie flag either. I am happy for a blue flag with the Southern Cross.

    How about the green and gold boxing kangaroo flag?  LOL

    CW is on the money - why have something in the top left corner just for the sake of it?

    Kirsty Coventry to add to Zimbabwe's tally at 12.22pm today.  Interesting that every Olympic medal for the post-Independant Zimbabwe has been won by a despised member of the white outcast race.

      All white including my headmaster's daughter.

    And Kirsty Coventry. 

    Apparently we have a decent long jumper.  We'll see.  Maybe he'll win if we tell him Mugabe's head is 9 metres down the pit.

    I heard Coventry speak today and she sounds about as Zimbabwean as Maria Sharapova does Russian.

    Would you live there if you were white Gronk?

    You are in the states but I assume you consider yourself Australian still??

    If I were white I would probably move to Australia so I could tell everyone how crap a country it was in comparison to my uninhabitable homeland ;)

    But what would I know about being a white man- here's a recent photo:



    Actually I am unsure about my identity - way too many people here seem to think english is my second language!!

    thanks for the apology Kev!!

    What's the bet Gronk is over in SF telling the yanks how crap their country is despite its superior GDP, medal tally, diversity, history etc etc etc.

    Have you visited the States Mata. There are a lot of Americans and some very very wealthy ones but to say that it is a better country is pretty subjective. Every time I visit I can't wait to get back.

    Exactly my point.  Pre-Fraser interventionary stuff-up my country was pretty bloody good too.

    For the record I'd rather live in Australia than America.
