Australians Told To Impartially Cheer For Home Team At Tomorrow Night’s T20 Match

Tony Abbott satire

The Federal Government has asked its citizens to barrack for Australia with rigorous unbiasedness at tomorrow night’s T20 cricket match against England at the MCG.

“We think it’s important that people support the home side in a totally neutral way,” a Government spokesperson said.

“We’d expect Australians to have a thorough commitment to viewing both sides unemotionally and completely equally, with a clear-cut preference for the Australian side”.

He reminded the umpires that they should be meticulously even-handed in giving the benefit of the doubt to Australia.
