Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:



    Canadians need to adopt a similar stance!!

    Our country- YOU Have the right- the right to leave

    After Sydney not wanting to offend other cultures by not putting up Xmas decorations/lights. After hearing that the state of South Australia changed its opinion and let a Muslim woman have her picture on her drivers license with her face covered prompted this editorial written by an Australian citizen.

    Published in an Australian newspaper.



    “ I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.

    However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the “politically correct†crowd began complaining about the possibility that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by coming to Australia. However there are a few things that those who have recently come to our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand. This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity.

    As Australians, we have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own lifestyle. This culture has been developed over centuries of struggles,trials,and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.

    We speak English, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore if you wish to become part of our society, learn the language!!

    “In God We Trust†is our National Motto. This is not some Christian, right wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented.

    It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture. If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don’t like “A Fair Go†then you should seriously considera move to another part of this planet.

    We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, and we really don’t care how you did things where you came from.

    This is OUR COUNTRY,OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy this. But once you are done complaining, whining and griping, about OUR FLAG, OUR PLEDGE, OUR NATIONAL MOTTO or OUR WAY OF LIFE.

    I highly encourage you to take advantage of one other great Australian freedom.

  2. The problem is that the white immigrants didn't adapt to Aborigional culture and religion, instead they took over the ABORIGIONIES COUNTRY, the ABORIGIONIES LAND, and IMPOSED WHITE CHRISTIAN CULTURE, which of course is what happened throughout Pagan Europe!

    Do I a detect a strong stench of White Australian hypocrisy here?
  3. There is always the question of how many times you can press the undo icon, and I would suggest that colonisation of somewhere like Australia and even the USA is a legacy we are left to deal with as it can't be undone. On the other hand there is a logic in saying that if some one decides to settle in a country to enjoy the benefits and protection of that country there is a level of obligation in return to accept the cultural consequences of that choice.

    It is all of course a delicate balance, it is all too easy to swing to far one way or the other.
