Is there anything that multiculturalism isn’t to blame for?

According to the genius readers of the Herald Sun, the UK riots are a direct result of Britain’s policy of multiculturalism and not the recent police shooting of a black youth (gang member actually), rampant unemployment or a terrible Tory government.

The Herald Sun’s resident trollumnist also initially blamed multiculturalism but has since back-pedalled ever so slightly. Doesn’t stop his idiotic readers though!

I Can Feel The Fire

Yesterday I attended the The Swinging 60’s/The Art Of Ronnie Wood and Images Of Rock-n-Roll exhibition at the Silver K Gallery in Armadale. There were lots of photos of 60s rock stars. mainly the Beatles and Rolling Stones, while I thought Ronnie Wood’s painting were pretty good, although they seemed to be much more about him making a statement about the famous people he’s hung out with over the years, rather than about his style. I guess this is typical of Woody, ho I love by the way, but he has spent 40+ years playing the sidekick firstly to Rod Stewart and then to Mick and Keith. It’s a shame that his creativity has been stifled by the Glimmer Twins to an extent, because judging by some of the stuff he wrote for the Faces and Rod Stewart (and his solo stuff) he is a very good song writer and a great guitarist. I just wish he was able to step out of Keith’s shadow once in a while!

Royal Botanic Gardens

P & I spent the day in the Royal Botanic Gardens in Melbourne. It was a nice day and we saw lots of stuff.

A couple of weeks ago someone tried to chop down the separation tree with a chainsaw.

We also spent some time at the nearby Shrine of Remembrance.
