With the recent case, whereby bike helmets are now exempt for certain religions, one has to wonder, at what point do we become no longer Australia.

Strange you should mention bike helmets.

Here in Byron Bay, there arenít any! No lights either. No reflectors. And a complete free-for-all as far as riding on the wrong side of the road or footpath or wherever goes, day or night!

All the cycling rules that apply throughout the country have been thrown out the window here!

Itís like being in a different country! Not Australia any more.

Itís got everything to do with the laid-back hippy culture, .Öand nothing to do with immigrants of different religions.

I imagine this country stopped being Australian when the first 'immigrants' arrived here over 200 years ago rehctub...

Or maybe we stop being Australian when we deny we have always been a multicultural country, and refuse to embrace it?

That's an easy one. Australia always stops being Australia when we get a Labor Government.

When the Earth's magnetic field reverses. The name Australia is derived from the Latin 'australis', meaning 'southern'. When the field flips - which it's due to do any day now - southern becomes northern and we should change our name to 'Borealia'.

Cheers,

Tony

Like it or loath it, as Rechtub appears to.
Religion and its belief is behind this storm in a tea cup.
The people involved can be as Aussie as rechtub, and just as loyal, even Liberal party members.
A community based near Coff,s Harbor in NSW has been in this country longer than both me and rechtub.
We are, some of us, becoming quite xenophobic.
A hint, in threads spotlighting why many, including me, are concerned about Muslim migration, some identified these folk as other than the folk who in some cases here for 100 and over years, having introduced Camels as transport to our out back.
