AUSSIE PATRIOTIC SONG

 

Donald Elley of Bellingen:

I’m from New Zealand originally, so I don’t qualify to be a true blue Aussie. Whatever that means.

I once dated a former Australian Prime Minister’s daughter, Debbie McMahon. Her father is the late Billy McMahon who was briefly Australian Prime Minister(1971-1972).

Debbie was an interesting date. Though very polite and well-bred, schooled at elite Sydney schools, she preferred dating girls to dating boys. She is now a lesbian.

We went out on dates four times. Debbie was estranged from her mother Sonia. These are wealthy people. Her mother, now deceased, was worth AUD 50 million.

Debbie was suing her mum over money issues and quite angry towards her. She took me to her mother’s beach house high on the hill above Sydney’s exclusive Palm Beach. She wanted to break in and for us to make love on her mother’s bed. Quite romantic?

Debbie told me after four (non-romantic) dates that I wasn’t suitable for her because I wasn’t blue blood Australian. Whatever that means.

When I think of blue blood Australian or a true blue Australian, I think of short, deformed people from the Motherland who were sent here to do their time in a penal colony. And I think of former Australian Prime Minister Bob Hawke who exclaimed after Australia won the America’s Cup (yachting) in 1983, “Any boss who sacks anyone for not turning up today is a bum”. And I think of people I observe about me called bogans, best portrayed in the TV series, “Bogan Hunters”.

So what is a blue blood Australian or true blue Australian?

REAL AUSSIE SONG

Hey everyone…have a fantastic Australia Day today…if you’re not an Aussie, please enjoy this song…and come and visit us sometime…and if you do – go Outback and don’t just visit our beautiful cities…go out back of beyond…where all you can hear is silence…under the vast southern stars at night…hearing the Kookaburra, seeing the wedge-tail eagle, goanas (large monitor lizards), kangaroos, wallabies, wallaroos, wombats, koala, myriad exotic birds you’ve never seen before, crocodiles, deadly poisonous snakes, emus, and so many beautiful creatures only found in Australia. Like the platypus.

And vast rainforests with trees and plants only found in Australia – like the rare majestic Wollemi Pine, Davidson Plum and Bunya Tree.

Beaches like nowhere on the planet.

Kakadu National Park- one of the last Edens.
