Yeah, I guess I met too many today for my liking. Mum told me never to discuss politics with people and she was right. It brings out the worst in people.

no my opinion is based on reading fact! perhaps you should read up on it first! It has never been denied, just shoved under the carpet, there is lots of evidence to support what I said. Rather immature to slate somebody for having an opinion based on fact!
we are allowed that arent we?

you're obviously enjoying the banter, thats what it is about, your opinion is not right or wrong either is it?

Okay, I feel like I've missed some of this conversation. I do support your right for an opinion, even though I don't quite get how this played out. Been a long day, but yes, be proud of your right to opinion.. I am of mine

Yeah such awful convicts, how dare they steal a loaf of bread to feed their starving family. That's what most of them had done to be deported. I'm not condoning theft, but they were hardly hardened criminals who would murder or rape the aboriginals.

Do you have any particular evidence to show that bread-theft-to-feed-starving-family was the most common crime amongst convicts sent to Australia?
