Hello Australia Day and the naming of David Morrison head of the Diversity Council of Australia as Australian of the Year. He will obviously be of some concern with the old guard conservatives, royalists and general advocates of inequality everywhere. That story will unfold throughout the year and I hope it will be colourful and newsworthy for the right reasons or for satire possibly the wrong reasons.
Anyway while doing this little cartoon today I had an idea. It has often been of concern that the day we call Australia Day ( Jan 26) does not work for everyone. Also it is noted that we already have a holiday associated with hangovers and whatnot on January 1 which would be Constitution Day or Federation Day.
The solution I propose is that without delay we put aside all our problems and become a Republic with our very own Head of State. We could then have an Australia Day on the day we become a Republic. Problem solved except how do we choose exactly what day this would be.
