Dear John,

What's your favourite song? I bet it's "I'd love to have a beer with Duncan". Or the American national anthem.

- Claire


Well, both of those are radical songs, but my favourite is the Australian National Anthem. It's such a cool cong and best of all, the lyrics are spot on. Because Aussies are all young, and free, and wealthy, and our home really is girt by sea. Well, mine's not girt by sea, but Kirribilli is right next to Sydney Harbour. That's how you can tell real Australians from foreigners. Like, they're always poor, that's why they sponge off the government. And their homes aren't girt by sea, 'cause most of them are locked up in detention centres where they belong. The only line I don't like, is "For those who've come across the seas, we've boundless plains to share", because that's not entirely true. It really should say, "For those who've come across the seas from white, wealthy, english-speaking backgrounds, we've boundless plains to share".

I really should get that changed.

Got a question? Then share, because I care. Email me, the people's PM, at jhlog@hotmail.com
