I don't think I've talked about this much before but it's considered an open secret amongst the remaining members of the Australian public who can still walk and chew gum at the same time.
Many people believe that Australia is intended to be a refuge for many of the world's elite during World War III. Not a refuge for the Australians, mind you, but a gigantic offshore remote fallout shelter for the world's ruling classes. The peasants who live here are regarded with a similar attitude to that the Japanese had towards the Aborigines in World War II if they successfully occupied our country ... the elite hope to see them quietly die off through attrition.
This theme is always close to the surface in Australia at all times.
Some Australians believe we already have nuclear weapons here for defensive reasons
