And then you have my next door neighbour, who is the lovliest man you'll ever meet. A muslim, whose wife wears a hijab (out of choice), a family man who loves his children, his wife, and his adopted country. A man who brings his family over to share a bbq, and has no issue while I sink a VB as he is drinking apple juice. A man who works hard to support his family, earn a living, put a roof over his head, put food on the table and pay his taxes. A man who who has the same opinion of extremism as I do.

A man who fled his own country to give his family a better life. Call me 'huggy fluffy' all you like, but I'd like to think we are all bigger men than those that would be happy to deny opportunity through fear mongering and the odd bad apple.

"For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To Advance Australia Fair."

Apologies for any offence.
