Displaced by squatters 

It gets to me that the squattocracy and their descendants are praised for living side-by-side for 170 years (The Standard, February 2). 

The Aboriginal people who lived there side-by-side for thousands of years, until they were hunted and annihilated from their land, don’t even rate a mention. 

I bet they would have liked the opportunity to apply for 34,000 acres (of their own land) gratis. 

I don’t recall Stewart McArthur ever being an advocate of Native Title. You’d think he’d feel compelled to give something back.
