I tried to have a day away from Australian politics today and I succeeded.
For most of the day.
And then – - – -
I was looking through some old newspapers on Trove tonight when I spotted this article on the front page of the Perth Daily News of June 25th, 1947.
Australia is not a friendly place for foreigners! Even if they are heroes and have helped Australians.
The article makes the point that Kay Velu wanted to return to Singapore. No doubt after it had been made very clear to him that he would not be staying in Australia.
The Honourable Herr Morrison would have been proud to be in charge back then!
