In your face, Harry Hutton! No less a personage than someone I’ve never heard of called Brian McFadden has condemned you and the rest of your fellow diseased Englanders:

“Australians read between the lines, they’re clever enough not to live their lives by what appears in the newspaper, unlike the people over here,” he said.

I understand that Mr McFadden, who apparently lectures in several disciplines at prestigious Westlifers university, has lately been entertaining an Australian lass. This union may provide the theme for our next national anthem.

    1. England has as much chance of winning the Ashes as the Socceroos have of winning the FA Cup.

      For that matter, the Ashes are still in England, despite them having been won and retained by Australia for as long as I can remember. At least the New York Yacht Club had the grace the hand the Americas Cup trophy.

      Err… have you noticed that one Mr Rodney Marsh is involved in this recapture…? I’d be checking his pockets regularly if I were you.

  1. Bacchus is just bitter because Boonie got his record. OK it may well be the single most important record in Australian sports, but that shouldn’t turn him into a traitor.
