Look Out England!


Recommended Posts

Aforementioned brother-in-law who left England in November under eight inches of snow leaves Australia tomorrow under eight feet of water.

He's a walking disaster and is heading home.

Just thought I'd warn you.

There was a time when Britain sent people it didn't want out to Australia.

Now it seems, according to THYLACINE's wording here, that Australia is sending people they don't want back here :o

Perhaps we could set up an International exchange scheme? <_<

We'll swap you the Yorkshire Ripper for Kyle Minnoge lol

If we've got have your criminals send us that bloke who went round shooting people with a bucket on his head so that no one would recognise him.

Ned Kelly or somebody :unsure:

Sure he could do a good "blindfold shooting" novelty act in a circus or on "Britain's got Talent" B)

With a bit of luck he could end up shooting Simon Cowell and the rest of the judging panel lol

Ned Kelly is indeed the one you mean, DaveH, although other Bucketheads are available :olol

Ned Kelly looks mean and ugly in that picture in your link madannie

No wonder he wore a bucket over his head lol

Could that be why they chose Mick Jagger to play him in the film ;-)

I think Mick Jagger looks better now as he approaches 70 than he did when he first became famous when he was in his 20's.

Then again, for good looks he just couldn't get no satisfaction lol

Sorry, you can't have him, he's a national treasure.

How did an illiterate Irish immigrant who stole horses and shot policemen become an Australian icon and folk hero?

He was an ordinary bloke who rebelled against corruption and injustice in high places.

Today, he would have the aura of a Julian Assange but in the 1800's his type were 'sent to trial on Friday and hung on Saturday'

Come on THYLACINE, they hung him for murder.

He wasn't an Australian National Treasure he was just a common criminal :(

Well, he was probably "transported to the colonies" for crimes committed over here, - and then carried on doing the same over there.

That would explain how a 19th century criminal ended up in Australia
