I am yet to see Wes Anderson’s latest (and according to Crikey’s Luke Buckmaster “in many respects his greatest”) film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, but I eagerly anticipate doing so. And after reading Anka Muelstein’s essay  about the writer Stefan Zweig, whose work inspired Anderson’s film, it seems as appropriate way as any to reflect on Operation Sovereign Borders.

So this brown-skinned Muslim disabled single mother goes to a lecture by a libertarian socially conservative human rights commissioner… It sounds like a joke told by an Andrew Bolt fan after a long night at the pub.

We have been harsh on the bogan, in the sincere belief that we were also being fair.

We dared to suggest that the bogan stands for nothing, falls for everything, and possesses no enduring convictions beyond the urge to demonstrate its own loathsomeness.
