Over the hill they go, killing another mountain Gotta fill the quota – can’t go slow Huge machinery wiping out the scenery One big swipe like a shearer’s blow Rip rip woodchip – turn it into paper Throw it in the bin, no news today
Stirs my blood – gonna make a stand ~ Lyrics in part from John Williamson’s hit ‘Rip Rip Woodchip’ Full lyrics See it on YouTube 27 October 2010 ~

Just because I have fiercely conservative views, it doesn’t mean that I don’t like people who disagree with me.
I know I have a prickly exterior and I admit to more than occasionally giving people the rough end of the pineapple. But on the inside, I’m as sweet as sweet.
Don’t you believe me?
Just ask my Chinese friend Duno Wong. He is homosexual. He is a member of the Liberal Party. He is an environmental campaigner. He doesn’t agree with all my views, but gets upset when people refer to me as ‘anti-China‘.
He runs the local Chinese restaurant. For some reason, some of my pineapple-growing-National Party-Barnaby Joyce-faithful friends won’t sell their pineapples to him.
I dare not scold them. I can’t afford to disappoint my supporters.
