Yeah, we screwed it out of the original people - we got naming rights.

So what is your name going to be in aboriginal language? "We screwed it out of the original people"!!! I hope you are packing your bags and leaving the country then. Wouldn,t want to be a hypocrite , would we?

So it goes by a local name for thousands of years but it's politically correct to remove a name taken from a couple of guys who just decided to set up shop recently! Excellent logic. In fact, it will probably go by a dual name initially. Hopefully everyone will get used to the new name and they can drop the @Jardine@ bit eventually.

Really irritates me when people make comments like this, you hear it all the time- I still call it Ayers Rock, stuff that new name - Uluru! Most the nongs wouldn't have a clue who Henry Ayers was.
