He said that what England did with Aborigines is worst than what Hitler did.

Go check this out :

Makes some sens, England did a lot of dommage to the native population of its colonies, probably more than Hitler did in WW2. Still, burning their flag is radical...

What do you think about that? And to all Ausies, how was it received in Australia?

Guy just wants a shot at Calzaghe's belt


But on a serious note The union jack is Britain's flag. No matter what Britain done in the past, its irrelevant. It's like saying the German flag is nothing to be proud of because Hitler murdered jews.

bad example...the german flag isn't the same as then (i.e. it used to be the swastika). i don't know if the spanish flag is the same as it was a few hundred years ago cos they pretty much destroyed a whole civilisation (in south america).

and anyway, i'm sure mundine's comparison won't go down very well with australias jewish population. hitler sent millions to the gas chamber in a purposeful attempt to destroy an entire race. although what the colonial powers including britian did was terrible, you cannot compare the two.

I really want to see Froch knock the silly bastard's head off.
He has a point, but what he is doing is an affront to the Britain of today, not the Britain of the 19th century. We no longer abuse primitive mud grubbing tribesmen.


Britain wasn't responsible for the stolen generation, Britain didn't create the "White Australia" policies, etc.

The Queen is monarch of Australia and Australia is part of the Commonwealth.

Considering that the Indigenous Australians were there for over 42,000 years and then these british convicts were sent over a few hundred years ago to steal their land.

And? I'm obviously aquainted with such facts. The Queen has no power in the UK or Australia, and the Commonwealth isn't exactly powerful when it comes to the internal affairs of it's members.


What's done is done, the Aborigines shouldn't have been treated that way, but it happened and is in the past and has NOTHING to do with modern Britain.

You can say the same about Indigenous American Indians etc.

Whats done is done, sad but unchangeable!

Mundine is just stoking the fire!

Germany had a different flag during the Nazi years Naz fan. Remember the swazstika?

As for mundine's comments, I was always under the impression that it was the the Australian administration (part of the empire, but with a lot of jurisdiction over policy in Oz) that was responsible for the killing of thousands, maybe even more, Aboriginals. As such it's hard to distinguish between what was done by "Brits" and what was done by "Australian Brits".

TBH, The aussies have got more to worry about in the attitudes of their white youth today. They rival the Saffers in having a hard to shake attitude of racial discrimination.

EDIT: sorry should have read the whole thread, but Beowulf is right to my knowledge and Mundine would have to keep his distance for 12 round to beat Froch, otherwise he's getting KTFO.

Yes but you see my point. Why the hell should the flag be changed cos of that? It's stupid. Damn stupid dumb ignorant rappers think they know everything when they are dumb as ****.
