Well, I FINALLY got the Terror booklet in the mail (what would I have done if there was a chemical or biological attack on Hawthorn East in the last week eh? I would have been dead) and what a pissy little package it is. Everything i'd ever seen of it led me to believe it was going to be a massive volume of helpful information and propaganda.

Instead they tell you what to do if your child becomes scared of a terrorist attack. Tell them to get over it? Get them to ring up the hotline and ship your muslim neighbours to ASIO? The possibilities are endless.

The best bit is the fake John Howard signature. They try to make it look as real as possible, but why? Who is going to sit there and think "well, he autographed 17,000,000 of these. What a guy!"

And the commissioner of the Federal Police looks like a 70's porn star, if that's any help.
