Dumb and dumber

Australian PM John Howard says Sydney riots won’t hurt country’s image AND he denies racism had anything to do with the riots.

Goodness no, race clearly has nothing to do with it.

The young men appeared to be of Middle Eastern origin, indicating they were taking revenge for a riot on Sunday when a mob of 5,000 white men, many drunk and wrapped in the Australian flag, attacked people of Middle Eastern appearance near Cronulla beach.

Sunday’s fighting came in retaliation for the beating a week earlier of two volunteer life guards by men described as being of Lebanese descent. 


Bush says he does not live in a bubble


  1. Australian papers refer to it as ‘race riots’, the PM’s comments notwithstanding.

    By culture do you mean class?
