Re: Australia - The Hermit Kingdom

There’s no Birchgrove in Queensland Must be an editorial error There is one in Qld but you're right, it looks like an error. Ancich runs one of those, shall we say, ... esteemed international student colleges. Like a private TAFE. Ex-PNG in Sydney. Prolific letter to the editor writer. Tony Abbott ...

Re: Sabbatini's 3-L "racist' tattoo...

Makes sense for him to get three letters for words in another language, even if they don’t really look like letters. English-speaking South African born in Durban + University of Arizona, so it's not a good look. Maybe you're right and he needs a smooth, slick PR campaign in the style of Rassie Era...

No the Danes are through as they complete a catch. Dunno Seft... their 4th had stopped. They only had two riders complete the race. They’d completed the pursuit by catching the GB rider, the race is over at that point. They still had to post a time in order to qualify for the medal races... I bow t...

Can't see any one else for the gold, though India seem inspired. I'm still stunned they beat Australia. I’m utterly blown away by that. One of the biggest upse...
