"I am just trying to make people aware and educate them because most of them don't know the story.

 

"The truth is, that anthem was composed in the 1800s when Aborigines were considered fauna. From 1901 to 1973 there was a White Australia Policy to make Australia white, and guess what the theme song of that policy was - Advance Australia Fair. So what are they really singing, Advance Australia White.

 

"I am a guy who has always stood up for what I believe in, and if people were educated on that and knew the facts they would say 'let's change it for the better - for all Australians'," Mundine said.

Seriously, Mundine is a f*cking moron and a waste of space.

 

So much could be said but I'll just quote what my departed grandfather would say "They should have knocked him on the head at birth and raised a pig on the milk".

 

 

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/The_meaning_of_advance_Australia_Fair

 

Answer:.

Advance means to move forward or progress

Fair is referring to the beauty of Australia

Therefore the line is referring to our beautiful country moving forward or progressing into the future

 

 

Just take a look at the wording, antiquated English. I just don't see where/how the song refers to the white Australia policy, it does focus on people from all over the world coming to Australia though.

 

Verse 1

Australia's sons let us rejoice,

For we are young and free;

We've golden soil and wealth for toil,

Our home is girt by sea;

Our land abounds in Nature's gifts

Of beauty rich and rare;

In hist'ry's page, let ev'ry stage

Advance Australia fair.

In joyful strains then let us sing,

Advance Australia fair.

 

Verse 2

When gallant Cook from Albion sailed,

To trace wide oceans o'er,

True British courage bore him on,

Til he landed on our shore.

Then here he raised Old England's flag,

The standard of the brave;

"With all her faults we love her still"

"Britannia rules the wave."

In joyful strains then let us sing

Advance Australia fair.

 

Verse 3

While other nations of the globe

Behold us from afar,

We'll rise to high renown and shine

Like our glorious southern star;

From England soil and Fatherland,

Scotia and Erin fair,

Let all combine with heart and hand

To advance Australia fair.

In joyful strains then let us sing

Advance Australia fair.

 

Verse 4

Should foreign foe e'er sight our coast,

Or dare a foot to land,

We'll rouse to arms like sires of yore,

To guard our native strand;

Britannia then shall surely know,

Though oceans roll between,

Her sons in fair Australia's land

Still keep their courage green.

In joyful strains then let us sing

Advance Australia fair.*

I really hope Geale knocks him out .

 

 

I like this version much more

 

 

Verse 1

Australians all let us rejoice,

For we are young and free;

We've golden soil and wealth for toil;

Our home is girt by sea;

Our land abounds in nature's gifts

Of beauty rich and rare;

In history's page, let every stage

Advance Australia Fair.

In joyful strains then let us sing,

Advance Australia Fair.

 

 

 

Verse 2

Beneath our radiant Southern Cross

We'll toil with hearts and hands;

To make this Commonwealth of ours

Renowned of all the lands;

For those who've come across the seas

We've boundless plains to share;

With courage let us all combine

To Advance Australia Fair.

In joyful strains then let us sing,

Advance Australia Fair.

He would have to be the biggest prat ever to draw breath. Remember the days he complained he didnt get picked in the Kangaroos side because he was Aboriginal. Forget to mention there wer plenty of better players than him at the time.

LOL he really jacked up when whats his name kent had a crack... and he had nothing but circle talk. He called old Artie a "uncle tom" then tried to circle back and say he didn't.

 

He is an absolute DH imo. but you know what.... he starts this rubbish up before all his fights. Its about generating interest which creates more advertising and money for him.

Comon guys! He is the greatest athlete ever! :lol

 

 

I seldom agree with Gus Whorlan from MMM radio in Sydney but I nearly spat my Cornflakes when he repeted this line and added "he is not even the best athelete in his family!"

 

His nickname should not be Chock, it should be Chip, as in chip on his shoulders the size of a small car.

Kimbo wins 2nd round.

 

I will now go and get my bucket and prepare to watch The MOUTH make his entry.

We need a ring announcer like Bruce Buffer !

This guy seems flat compared to the mighty Buff !

I can't see how in our modern progressive society that punching each other in the head is still considered a sport. I suggest they change the rules to punching each other in the nuts. That would be more fun to watch, and also make them less likely to be able to have kids thus making the world a more passive place, win win :)
