From Christian Kerr in today’s Crikey:
New terror threat in Canberra. “Caution! Swooping bird,” warn signs on one of the House of Representatives courtyards.
Oh boy Christian. You really should get out of Parliament House occasionally on your rare visits to our fair and magpie-populated city. Then you might discover that these signs are not at all uncommon and magpie swooping is a problem we actual residents have to put up with every year.
I’m surprise the fat maggies of the big house would dare swoop the nice people who feed them when they can just menace them from the other side of the outdoor tables.
