The Canberra Times is delighted to have finally found a local angle on the royal wedding.
The ACT Government has not sent a gift, or in this case made a donation to charity which was the couple’s clever way of not getting deluged with crap from every corner of the world.
RiotACT has long thought that Government’s making donations to charity on our behalf is pointless and insulting tokenism. So despite going to a wedding party and revelling in Beckham arseing up the wearing of his OBE (medal on the wrong side when he should have been wearing a neck ornament, or better yet realise that at a royal wedding an OBE is no a particularly prestigious gong) we salute this bold stand.
If I want to give the couple a token wedding gift by donating to the flying doctors I’m more than capable of doing it myself.
We can only hope this bold stand will now be consistently held when the event in question is more to the Chief Minister’s tastes.
