||Sir Wellington Boote is a man with deep first-hand experience of some of the world's more complete hell-holes, in Africa, in the Middle East and in Vietnam, where he did not notice John Howard as a young fellow conscript.
He brings unparalleled insights into the mind of those he warmly describes as "Mussies", as he has worked with them in many tough situations.
Sir Wellington says: "My weakness for mussies is standard Australian fare: they are the underdog, poor sods. The fact that their own actions mightily contribute to this condition doesn't alter the facts."
"As for America, I live in daily mortification as I watch the destruction of the most important democracy in the history of the world, and a pillar of Western civilization, destroy itself in a stew of hubris and psychotic capitalist greed. Again, this is self inflicted."
"The role of an Australian government is to pursue that second trillion, spread it widely, hold onto every skerrick of this continent, strengthen our population numbers (sex and migration), feed as much of the world as we can (commercially, of course), teach Ginger Meggs, and his mates Tran, Mahmoud and Carlos (firmly) that they live in a Western Civilization nation, and this means x,y,z ...... Above all, hang together, lest we hang separately."
