I don’t have many historical heroes but Capt James Cook is one of them so the news that Filth in Victoria have vandalised his cottage gets my Irish up. I would seriously go ballistic if I come across them as they did their evil work and believe me 186cm 112 kilo frame would be a ballistic nightmare – there would be no ricochet or deflection with that mass. VANDALS got in ahead of extra security planned for Captain Cook’s cottage over the Australia Day weekend. The Melbourne monument was sprayed with anti-Australia graffiti for the second year in a row early Friday morning, with slogans reading “26th Jan Australia’s shame” and “F*** Australia Day”. Smashed light bulbs were used as makeshift paint bombs, breaking one window and littering the building’s surroundings with glass. Bastards!
