In the Land of OZ - Promoter Calls Flag "Gang Colours"

From BBC News....

Australian anger at flag controls Demanded By "Big Day Out" Promotors

PM John Howard said the "proposition" that the display of the flag should ever be banned "is offensive and it will be to millions of Australians".

You bet it is!

Event producer Ken West said he was concerned by the use of the flag by white mobs during race riots on Sydney's Cronulla Beach in December 2005, and by some fans at the Big Day Out concert a month later.

Notice the Australian protestors of Islamic Criminal beahviour and Violence are described as "MOBs" ??

"The Australian flag was being used as gang colours," he was quoted by The Daily Telegraph newspaper as saying. "It was racism disguised as patriotism and I'm not going to tolerate it."


Prime Minister John Howard added: "The event organisers should not ram their peculiar political views down the throats of young Australians who are only interested in a good day out."

Prime Minister John Howard has his head screwed on straight at least!
