Happy Australia Day to all. We have a thread up on the discussions about changing the date for celebrating Australia, and that got me thinking that this weeks belated top five is about Australians. Now – this is a very subjective list and I think that mine might even change by the time I have read some of the nominees that the blogocrats themselve put up.
So here is my top five:
- Geoffrey Robertson – Human Rights Lawyer
- Percy Grainger – Composer
- Howard Florey – Scientist
- Patrick White – Author
- Doc Evatt – one of the framers of the UN Decaration of Human Rights, and born in Maitland too!
Remember, there is no right or wrong, just a chance for us to remember the Australians that make us feel proud.
