I have noticed the lack of correspondents from Australia here. I guess that they are too busy living to bother with writing about it. I am not normally one for generalised racial stereotypes, but I did notice this little gem from my pals at the BBC, talking about the cane toad problem:
"Animal welfare groups have said that the humane way to get rid of these invaders is to put them into a freezer until they die."
I suppose that Alcoholics Anonymous Australia will be promoting the message, "quit whingeing, and get one down your neck".
