1960s Anglo Australia

I just rewatched the 1978 Australian movie Newsfront and talked to a mate about it down under.

Luke: “It was so lovely and white. So many beautiful Anglos doing beautiful Anglo things and having beautiful Anglo babies.”

Mate: “You would have hated 1960s Anglo Australia. It was boring. It was 99% white. The food was s***. There was nothing to do. There was stifling conformity. Everybody thought the same way, talked the same way, ate the same s*** food.”

Luke: “Orthodox Jews never had it so good. The country was cohesive, loyal to the Queen, hated all foreigners, could say racist things with abandon, complain about dagos and wops and poms and chinks. Abos were considered flora and fauna. Good times.”
