We were here first….?

Writing about web page

Watching the news last night I was struck by the idiocy of a big Aussie white guy explaining (sorry, shouting) to the camera that Australia is our country, immigrants are not welcome here.

I am sure the aboriginal people would have quite a bit to say about that.

(i seem to remember that the phrase "aboriginal" is now frowned upon – can someone enlighten me on preferred terminology these days?)

When you consider just how transitory most nation's populations have been in both recent and more distant history, you wonder how anyone can claim a bit of geography as being "their country".
