Considering Canberra is made up of people from Victoria, NSW and other states, stupid headline grabber.

Canberrans have no right to think elitist over other Aussies.

I bet you wouldn’t be so amused if they were “Filthy Albanians”…

LMAO! Not to condone it but your prejudice towards Victorians is amusing!

“Broadmeadows Local Court”

In Canberra speak that would read “Charnwood Local Court”.
