The Race that Fleeces a Nation

Another Melbourne Cup day. An opportunity for everyone to don a hat and pretend they are wealthy for a day. The resulting throbbing hangover and realisation that not only will your outfit that cost a small fortune will be out of fashion next year, but that the rich now also have more of your hard earned money.

The Melbourne Cup a  metaphor for Australia today.
