Kellys, Bookies ... and other Bushrangers
Just to get us all geared up for the Melbourne Cup racing season … or a double dissolution election! Remember that Kellys weren’t just another mob of Bail Up merchants … they believed they were fomenting and funding an Irish rebellion in the backblocks of Australia – clearly great, great Uncle Ned was mad!
This topic is a chance to explore all our national insanities: personal, punting, political and possible police states … peaceably … perhaps!
Bring along Songs! Poems! Recitations! Tunes! etcBack in the bad old days, we would have said: "Ladies bring a plate - Gents bring a bottle" ... but we know better these days. Just for starters - we want something edible on the plate ... and a decent drop in the bottle!
