To the politicians and others who want to amalgamate Anzac Day with Australia Day,
I say this - leave Anzac Day alone.
It is not yours to meddle with.

It belongs to all Australians.

You are not paid to think for us, or tell us what we want; we can do that without your overpaid help.

Those who try to change Australia's day of remembrance insult the memories of those who fought and died for this land.
