Kevin (Andrews) and Little Johns Citizenship test

Thanks to Catherine Deveny at The Age for dumping far better on Little Johns citizenship test than I ever could.

Especially good:

When you go to a bring- your-own-meat barbie can you eat other people’s meat or are you only allowed to eat your own?

and:

Is it possible to “prang a car” while doing “circle work”?

and particularly:

What purple root vegetable beginning with the letter “b” is required by law to be included in a hamburger with the lot?

Those who quiver with delight at the real thing can find Kevin Andrews’ booklet and sample citizenship tests here. Part 1 – “What does it mean to be an Australian” is telling.

A few paras about Australian values that our friends in Canberra might try and live to:

  • respect for the equal worth, dignity and freedom of the individual
  • peacefulness
  • tolerance, mutual respect and compassion for those in need.

Bring on the election!
