Instant sacred site
IT started like any regular auction of a Sydney house in need of an update. It ended barely 30 minutes later in chaos. A group of Aboriginal men and women turned up in a minibus and handed out documents to startled potential bidders claiming that the property could be a sacred indigenous heritage site. This startling claim is based on the fact that there is a pile of what appears to be oyster shells in the back yard. So someone has a beer and shucks a few oysters out the back and the block becomes a sacred midden. I'm not sure of what to make of this insane ploy by the locals but the sellers and Real Estate guys must surely have a case to take these clowns to court.
