Sam Kekovich, ambassador for lamb in Australia, is calling for Australia Day to be abolished in his 2008 address to the nation. He is calling for the national day, celebrated on January 26, to be replaced with Australia Week. This year he’s taking a swipe at well known footballers Andrew Johns and Ben Cousins, making a snide remark about New Zealand’s prime minister Helen Clark, and made references to APEC, horse flu and the Nauru refugee centre.
