Thread Name: Folklore: Van Diemen's Land
Subject: RE: Folklore: Van Dieman's Land
As an expatriate of Van Diemen's Land, I trust the happy soul who referred to cranial surgery was not intending to slight the good citizens of Tasmania. We are not really inbred (well, some of us aren't!).

On to the topic ... surely the song would not suggest that the authorities would intentionally set out to trap poachers. Wouldn't be allowed through the courts these days! Not cricket, old chap.
