The commercial media are gleefully provoking a bit of Melbourne-Sydney rivalry in a spat over who will host the Australian Grand Prix. (It’s true, Sydneysiders are “the nation’s blowhards”.)
The important thing is that our northern cousins don’t realise how much having a Grand Prix sucks until after they’ve taken it. Good work, Melbourne, feigning outrage. Keeping a straight face, and pretending it’s not a total waste of public money and space most of us would be glad to be rid of. Sydney will only fight us for something if they think we want it. So… oh no! Please don’t take our Grand Prix! It’s ours because we are so awesome!
Heh, heh, heh. Shhhh!
