    I’m with bkpyett…..it’s brilliant. An infinitely better idea than giving a knighthood to a prince if you ask me. But maybe no one asked.

      Well they should have! Mind you, I reckon Abbott could have asked anyone in Australia and the answer would have been the same. Wildly inappropriate.

    Thanks for sharing this, I suspect this is going viral – I’ve already had it posted on my FB page! Really innovative idea and artistic. The sort of thing that should win the Turner Prize – IMHO.

      Fantastic, hope she gets lots of fans, it can be a lonely life as a single farmer. And great idea about the Turner!
