Cancelling Australia Day fireworks would be a slap in the face

SHOULD Mayor Pettitt and Fremantle council carry through their politically correct threat and cancel Fremantle’s Australia Day firework display, it will be nothing less than a slap in the face to all Australians (white, black and brown) who come together in Fremantle to celebrate Australia Day and the people who made this country great.

Of course, from a financial point of view it will hurt Fremantle’s shops, restaurants and pubs.

On the bright side, Perth, that has no plans to cancel its firework display, will be rubbing its hands together in glee at the thought of the extra money that will be flowing into its traders’ cash registers.

BOB LOFTUS,

Fremantle.
