That puts it all in a nutshell Dreamweaver. It's managed to include ALL that is wrong with Australia at the moment, and is a WARNING about the future. Let's hope the message gets through to the ones that can do something about fixing it, before it's too late.

Brilliant

Years ago my union, Actors Equity finally achieved great things by stopping JCW from using unknown imported artists. Finally we use Australian artists with a few acceptable exceptions.
I am sad that we do not own our iconic brands like vegemite. Australians must support our own products. Even if I have to pay a bit more I buy Australian.
Totally support this song.

I actually feel like removing the post. At first bite it was melodious and lightly humourous, with much I agreed with, just a few points that were a bit conditional. Then I was thinking it could be used too by ranters who want Australia to be all the things that are not traditional for Australia, like 'a fair go' for all; the multi-culturalism that was seen on the gold fields, interrupted only temporarily by the White Australia policy; and so on. Sure enough, the Youtube site is full of some that are the epitome of racist bigoted hate-filled versions!

I am very confident dream that if any of us start making racist comments the mods will stop it. Its not the other placewhere racism is encouraged or ignored or perhaps encouraged.
The bigger danger is absolute censorship.
Many of us do lament the loss of many iconic brands.

The relationship between unemployment out in the sticks and immigration is non-existent.
