Comment on The unfinished business of Sorry Day by Surprised!.

The “second step” is for Aboriginal peoples to take more pride in their culture.
Many children were removed from their parents. I remember English kids just “arriving” at my school when I was a kid. Their parents were still in England. From memory this happened up until the late 70s.
Whilst it is terrible, if the children are at risk they need to be removed.
The harsh reality is that in a lot of cases the bittersweet is that a lot of these people received a good education and are well respected people and that includes Aboriginal people.

I’m with Janet Brown on this. She puts it succinctly and eloquently.


Police seek information after attacks on two women
When I go walking my dog at night, I carry a knife for protection.
It’s about risk assessment. The risk of being attacked or menaced is a lot higher than being caught by the police, so it makes sense.
In the unlikely event I get caught by the police, I’ll cry that I had a bad childhood or use the race card and the court system will let me go with a smack on the wrist.
To do otherwise would be seen as racially prejudicial.


Robbed man gets empty wallet back
Wow, those girls must be so fu**ing tough. To be able to rob a 71 year old. Perhaps we could nominate them for some kind of award.
How about the Sewer Rat Award? We could get one of the piss weak pollies to be MC.


Suddenly everyone is talking about 1Territory
Why is it that the pollies who did this are not held to account?
Surely in the legal system there is an avenue as there would be for former company directors?
I wish 1Territory the best of luck and they will get my vote.


Wakefield insists on Anzac Oval, ignores majority
Steve Brown: You raise some excellent points Steve, however you seem to be overlooking one very important fact.
If the government wanted to consult the masses, they should have taken the opinions more seriously.
The fact that they didn’t, is disrespectful to the taxpayer. So, was it just lip service?
I think you’ll find that this may be what has pissed people off.
