Animal Farm

an experience of aussie icons

I suppose you heard about the flag we lost up here in Toowoomba. Some low life fools have gone to the trouble of hacking into the bottom of the pole and ripping down the flag. Why?! What can they do with it (except destroy it, perhaps?). I took a photo of the article in the Sydney paper. Here it is. The flag only went up in January this year. It's going to cost $10,000 to replace. Fantastic. This kind of nonsense just didn't happen when I was a girl. It's very disappointing.

Thanks to
