Tomorrow is Australia Day and our newspapers are full of opinion pieces on the subject. One in particular hit the nail on the head. It is by ROSS CAMERON and it's headed, "On top of the world in the country that won Lotto"

 

 

The first paragraph reads, "After sober reflection, it is my duty to inform you that Australia is the greatest country in history. Of the 192 members of the United Nations, the United States, with a 200-year head start and 14 times our numbers, takes line honours, but Australia wins on handicap. Donald Horne may be embarrassed about his Lucky Country epithet but he shouldn't be - Australia has won Lotto."

 

I can only agree!

We all get a lot out of lotteries!

    I think Australia is a great country but the new gun laws are ridiculous. No lotto winner in that regard.

        I read a bunch about the place and am quite impressed....

        They reached positive on jobs waaaay before the US did.

        The only thing that confuses me is why they don't get independance from Queen Elizabeth?

        Nice warm place to live. Nice economy. 

        The scenery isn't as nice as The West...

          because when we had a referendum on what to replace a queen with, we let the pro  monarchy people in and they made sure what came up as the option to vote on was unaceptable, ie another polly nominated polly.

           

          my personal favorite was a raffle. as to who became rubber stamping head of state.
