Abbott’s Eire Error? A Bit Irish, To Be Sure!


The Australian PM’s call to his nation to celebrate their Irish heritage caused an outcry, largely for the numerous references he made to the colour green, drinking Guinness and singing.

 That’s just weird!

ooooooooooo

Even if you have never heard the song about The Wearing of the Green, you’ll have seen international footballers wearing that colour. While Irish whiskey is very well known, Guinness is at least as famous, a product of their Dublin brewery.

And singing?

Is that now some shameful activity? Why would any country resent mention of singing as one of their characteristics? 

 

So how come Tony Abbott gets it in the neck for talking about those three things on St. Patrick’s Day?

I have never been reluctant to criticise the man if I think he’s wrong….“Koin Untuk Australia” – Understandable Reaction to Abbott’s Blundering!  …and praise him when he makes sense….Tony Tackling Hizbut Hate-Freaks – Craven Cameron Still Wimps Out! 

If he had chosen to talk about unpleasant aspects of the Emerald Isle (ooops, green again!) like Sinn Fein/IRA’s terrorism…

But he was being pleasant and friendly.

Why don’t the whingers get a grip?
