Re: Australia desperate for a war with China

No way Australians will vote for Dutton on that basis We don’t like warmongers Having said that, most* of us don’t like smoking CCP pole, either The first step is for Dutton to destabilise Scummo.

Re: Australia desperate for a war with China

Australian citizens of Chinese descent would be aghast at the prospect, they might dislike the ruling party in the PRC, but they would be totally a...

Tom Wright at full back, with MK and Vunivalu on the flanks. I would not have Neville in the team, unless he shows that he can step against the Keewee teams. He has a tendency to go missing when the going gets tough.
