On a scale of one to ten, it's not good

I think the recent events in the tsunami-prone fringes of Devil Bunny City are the most depressing things to have happened in this country while I have been here. If I, an educated middle-class Anglo-Slavic Catholic living hundreds of kilometers away, feel a sudden urge to tattoo 'Islam Power' on my knuckles, invest in a much larger car stereo, and beat the living daylights out of that idiot from Penrith who was stupid enough to give his name to reporters, I can only guess what my former neighbours are thinking.

As for Alan 'Inyenzi' Jones, surely those new sedition laws provide something he could be charged with? The role of talkback radio in the whole affair is frighteningly reminiscent of its role in the Rwandan genocide.

Yes, for once, I am a little ashamed to be Australian. The similarity to the recent riots in France, leads me to believe that it is true that France is a little like Sydney only bigger.
