Australia Day 2018

Warrigal’s Coat of Arms

Greetings from Emmjay and FM

The Pig’s Arms pub lives in cyberspace where the council rates are cheaper and the licensing laws are – shall we say, loosely policed.

But associated pub denizens build the pub, brick by brick on Gadigal Land – part of the Eora nation.

We would like to acknowledge the custodians of the land and pay our respects to elders, past, present and emerging.

Is, was, and always will be Aboriginal land.

We wish all Australians peace and harmony and celebrate all things Australian today in the Australian tradition of getting things a bit wrong fraternally.

Australia became a nation of states and territories on the first of January 1901 – the real Australia Day – but since that was already a day off, the next logical choice was Paul Keating’s birthday – 26th January.

In the spirit of inclusion, I would like to thank Algy for leaving Johnny Farnham out of the  Pig’s Arms Australia Day hottest 100.

Have a great day, mates.  Kick back and put Paul Hogan on the barbie.
