Thread Name: Ned Kelly to Have a Funeral
Subject: RE: Ned Kelly to Have a Funeral
As an Australian I have just read through the comments here and totally agree with you Bonzo and the others who don't regard Ned Kelly as a hero or legend. I am constantly amazed that so many people regard him in this way. Do the Americans rate Billy the Kid and Jesse James as heroes for example? What about our English friends? Are Jack the Ripper and Dr Crippin - or even the Yorkshire Ripper - heroes? Murderers are not heroes in anyone's book surely.
