When Anzac Day is unAustralian

Neil James, Executive Director of the Australia Defence Association, writes about the common myths associated with Anzac Day. Plus Tamils, hoodies, the Wilderness Society and more.

The Wilderness Society:

A concerned staff member of The Wilderness Society writes: Re. “Greenies see red as Wilderness Society descends into chaos” (yesterday, item 6). Further to the article published on Thursday, 22 April, by Andrew Crook — I was actually present for the “tirade” your reporter suggests Alec Marr “unleashed” on an unsuspecting staff.

    Tamas, you really couldn’t lie straight in a coffin.

    You have been caught out fibbing in relation to the only traceable quote you have used in all of about twenty contributions to this thread.

    Justin may be gone, but not forgotten. He offered you plenty of chance to defend yourself, but we are left with nothing but an intentional misquote, which is a nice way of saying that you are an unreliable witness, a lier, a person not to be trusted and a slimy scoundrel.

    In academic terms, a fraud.

    So you then throw in a pat-pourri of other factoids which take your fancy. No references, no rigour, no need for trust.

    Speaking of trust, you have destroyed any which you may have had when first I read your crap. I thought that you were trying to support an opinion.

    I now see that you are fighting to support nothing more than your ego.

    So, once more, I must bit goodbye to this thread, as Justin has. You have succeeded in closing down the thread but have taken no prisoners, convinced nobody and generally wasted your effort.

    What’s this – the Tamas and Justin love in?
