'Just before Christmas a young Afghan, presumably Muslim, drove a vehicle through a group of pedestrians in Flinders Street in Melbourne. Some people were seriously injured. But this wasn't the first such incident in Melbourne. Twelve months earlier another man did the same thing, killing innocent people including a ten-year-old girl from the Jewish community.' (Introduction)

'I am standing on the steps of Alexandria Gardens, metres from the banks of the Yarra river, its sick and sludgy brown texture camouflaged by darkness. Rowers slice through the water while trams rattle on the road above me. Flinders Street station’s famous dome is a stone’s throw away, looming above a street preacher who is ranting about the end of days.' (Introduction)

'Stan’s new remake and serialisation of the 1992 movie classic Romper Stomper opens with the original haunting theme music that has been canonised and sampled by many contemporary skinhead bands. The first scene then begins with waves rolling along a beach - similar to how the original film had ended.' (Introduction)
