Celebrate Australia Day

This Sunday, celebrate  the day when Captain later Admiral Arthur Philip RN, the first Governor of New South Wales, brought the first four pillars of our nation  - the rule of law, the English language, our Judeo-Christian values and that institution above politics the Crown.

The  British gradually gave us self government under the Westminster system, and we ourselves federated into one nation, with the approval and active support of the British - a Federal Commonwealth under the Crown.  

These sound  institutions have allowed Australia to develop politically and economically in a way few countries have.

Ignore the attempts to rewrite our glorious and unique history.

Advance Australia Fair!  God Save The Queen!
