There's a whole lotta glory being shone on the bloodbath that was Gallipoli today.
Maybe the gate-keepers of the news decided that we need to "honour" a bloodbath from 100 years ago to help us into the correctly receptive frame of mind to become willing accomplices to the next bloodbath.
I heard the unctuous turd Tony Abbott on the radio today ruminating about how Gallipoli forged Australia into a nation.
He's one to keep an eye on, that Abbott. With respect to the treatment of indigenous people and would-be refugees he makes our own dear leader look like a liberal, if such a thought is conceivable.
At least they have a decent minimum wage.
