Foxy, I think you copy URLs by hand. The last one is wrong.
I suggested some time ago that you install Tinyurl.com.
When you have a web page you want to send a url to someone you have
the page open and click on the Tinyurl button on the menu bar and it
produces the Tinyurl version of the desired page which can then be
copied into an email etc.

Back to business; The conditions you list to define an aborigine is
that any one of the three or do all three conditions have to be met ?

Pardon me for a minute Foxy:

Paul, for heaven's sake stop being stupid, you have no sense of humour
all you are doing is making yourself look vicious.

Dear Bazz,

The federal government departments adopt all 3 conditions.
As listed on a case by case basis.

As for my typing errors when citing links. I need
eye surgery and I have trouble with smaller print.
However due to covid - I have to wait a while.
Anyway, here's the previous link again:

Well argued Bazza and Hazza

For the truth telling Off of Foxy and Paul14

I draw your attention to the words of Mr Mike Mansell http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Mansell

who is "a Tasmanian Aboriginal leader who, as an activist and lawyer, has worked for social, political and legal changes to improve the lives and social standing of Tasmanian Aboriginal (Palawa) people."

NOTING:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Mansell#Activism_and_commentary

"In 2001 Mansell stated that "there were more phoney than real Aborigines in Tasmania and more than half the voters in the 1996 ATSIC election were not Aboriginal".

Tks Foxy,
Yes many people think they get all sorts of privilege.
The government has put many $Billions over the years into various
schemes. As I said earlier I filled in a government form recently
for some benefit , can't remember what is was,but aborigines could get
it at 40 and above and I could get it at 50 and above.
It was not the only time I have seen that "racist" "privilege".
That reinforces peoples belief in all the silly rumours.
You did not make it clear if there was an "and" between each condition
or if there was an "or" between each. Big difference.

Remember the Blue Eyed Tasmanian aborigine that was prominent some
time ago. His complexion was darker so there he was a demonstration
of the difficulty.

Ah yes Plantagenet, Michael Mansell. It appears a lot of the
Tasmanians have blue eyes. I recollect an article I read many years
ago about the idea that the Tasmanian aborigines are a different
people to the mainland people and that they arrived earlier than
the Koori people we are now calling the first nation, a Canadian term.
A thorough DNA examination may tell a lot of new history.
There have been big advances in that field in recent years.
