Nothing to do with ‘Ned Kelly’ or ‘Operation: Yewtree’
This is a BBC-inspired waste of television licence-payers money in which a woman who nobody had heard of before a talent show took a series of young families to Australia to convince them (and sadly us) that they would be better off living in ‘Prison-land’. An entire nation stolen from the Aborigines.
Of course, the Australians are always keen to tell you how good and hot it is ‘down under’ – where apparently ‘the women glow and the men chunder’.
But that doesn’t explain why so many of the buggers live over here and work behind our bars serving us overpriced drinks.
I’m wondering if an Australian TV company has a television programme over there called, “Wanted: Benefit Cheats” in which young families come to Britain to see if they can settle here and live more cheaply than they do in their own bloody country.
In fact, that’s the sort of programme that the BBC could sell to practically every country in the world. Let’s face it, it worked well with ‘Strictly Come Dancing’.
