Professor Stuart Macintyre:
… a young country has become old and weary. In its arrangements, also, there are signs of a premature senility.
Slim Dusty, singing a Graeme Connors’ song:
We’ve done us proud, to come this far, down through the years, to where we are. Side by side, hand in hand, we’ve lived and died, for this great land.
I’m with you, Slim.
