    What would happen if we scrap Centrelink all

    together? If we don't scrap it, we're going to end up like Greece. We did pretty well without it. F uck you Whitlam. It's a pretty weak argument to say that crime will go through the roof if we get rid off Centrelink. Solution - toughen the punishment for crime - corporeal...

    Feck Australia

    I came to australia on a working holiday visa from the uk about three months ago. I am literally sickened by their racism, their rudeness and open discrimination towards all other cultures including my own. I paid for a whv and was hoping to find some sort of semi skilled work...

    I am Australian. Born here,

    Warning to all non-Anglo-celtic people.

    Don't take your job seriously - always have a side business. Why do I say that? Because you have no hope of climbing the ladder. The reason these anglos employ you is because nobody else wants to do the dirty work. They want to use you as a work horse. Here is my most recent...

    Aussie Psychology.

    In an attempt not to generalise all Australians, I'm going to use the term 'aussie' only for those who identify with being 'true blue', are proudly ignorant and full of social weirdness. There are even foreigners who suck up the redneck culture so easily I'd call them aussie as...

    Australia has a high national debt
