"Why is it, I ask myself yet again, that the Left always believe utterly and completely that they, and only they, are the ones who can see the real truth of any situation? For a group which seems to be eternally wrong about everything..."

"seems to be". I see what you did there! Very clever, DD!

Nobody, but nobody in Australia, knows more than one or two lines of our national anthem.
This is because we don't like it and refuse to learn it.
A lot of people wanted "Waltzing Matilda" but the politicians said that nobody in the rest of the world would understand it and therefore we have to have something called "Advance Australia Fair" which says we are girt by sea. We don't know what that means.
We are Australians and we really don't give a shit about the rest of the world.
Still, we have this stupid national anthem that nobody bothers to learn.

Yes, I think 'Waltzing Matilda' would have been an excellent choice not least because it would be easy to change the words to something scabrous which we could all sing when you Aussies beat us at cricket/rugby, whatever!
