Australia Day 2011

Or "Invasion day" as some of the more politically correct call it.

For those readers not from Australia, it's our equivalent of July 4th. The day the first fleet landed.

I think it right that it should be both mourned and celebrated. That an act of theft can't be undone, so all we can do is make sure the ultimate outcome for the descendants of the victims is better than if it had not happened.

The date is a stupid and offensive choice. Move it to the anniversary of Federation or similar and maybe we can all celebrate.

Call it "Open Borders" Day.
