Welcome to another week and another open thread. Australia Day is upon us, which pretty much signals the end of the silly season for most of us. Every man and his dog seem to be using Australia Day as an excuse to push whatever barrow of theirs can be tied to our national day, which provides ample opportunity for their opponents to loudly condemn them.
What do you make of the annual debates that surround Australia Day? Thoughts on the flag, anthem, the symbolism of the date are all welcome.
Personally, the Hottest 100 has been a big part of celebrating Australia Day in our household, but this year’s leaking of the winner, along with the new schedule that’ll see it finish at 8:30pm instead of 6 has taken the shine off a bit. How will you all be celebrating?
