Thereís a big ol' Melbourne blogbash planned for this weekend. Not sure of the venue yet, but most likely itíll be one that supplies alcohol; updates on this soon. Iíll be there, but so will people who youíll actually enjoy talking to, so turn up and buy them drinks. Much thanks to the Ford Motor Company for providing transport -- review to follow.

IS that a satire on Ford's, um, pro-Aryanism?

You're joking Tim - no self-respecting RWDB would be seen dead in a yuppie tractor. You should have put your foot down and demanded the Ford RTV ute. Throw a couple of sandbags over the rear axle then feel the power of that sucker.
If the shit hits the fan down south, you can quickly convert into a technical. Simply mount an M-60 and a couple of spotties on the roll-bar, and let the car do the talking. One can never be too sure with those mexicans.
PS. wouldn't that impress your mate at the Albury drive-thru !

No Andjam, it's been reported that they've given about 230m to the movement since the early seventies
