Reader comment on item: [The Islamist-Leftist] Allied Menace

Submitted by Peter Edgar (Australia), Jul 4, 2008 at 08:09

'The Canberra Times' of 4 July reports that a high school in Australia's National Capital has won a Rock Eisteddfod Challenge with a performance of 'Mao's Last Dancer,' complete with Chinese communist flags and large portraits of Mao himself.

I am proposing that next year the school give thought to using 'Hitler's Last Dog', a 'Lassie Come Home' kind of story with a sad ending when the dog sacrifices himself by testing a poison pill for his Master who is down on his luck. The backdrop will feature large portraits of the kindly Adolf patting the dog in happier times.

That aside, Australia recently learned of a push to legitimise polygamous marriage but so far nothing seems to have come of it.

... On second thoughts, I did think that the irony may have been a little too heavy for skating on thin ice and publication but you are onto something important with your article which is, as usual, most perceptive.
