Cundall...he is quite a bloke.
He would make an excellent prime minister

Saladin and Genghis Khan

Georgie M has posted the most compelling letter so far this ... week, month, year...and he/she capped it off with a piece about the Great Khan [Da Khan]who, despite his reputation, was indeed the most tolerant and inclusive of history's conquerors. Following this, if one looks at history [no need to ape the yanks with the term 'history books'] the great Saladin was extremely tolerant of non-Muslim religions, and Christians, Jews and Muslims got along fine with each other as a result of his wise leadership.

Sydney's Telegraph fucking our language again

Why the apostrophe for students? I am sure Malcolm Farr didn't write this glaringly wrong headline. Again, the Telegraph betrays its hopelessly ill-trained and ill-educated staff. But then this is Australier ...[sic]

The whole world needs to speak English

I fully expect Italy, Greece, Poland, Russia and even Ireland to speak only English. Remember the Sydney lady who, in 1954, returned from Rome only to complain that there were too many 'New Australians' over there?
