“Political columnist Niki Savva is copping criticism after using the expression ‘killed a Chinaman’ on television,” Buzzfeed, the politics website for the pre-pubescent, reports today after this morning’s Insiders.
“According to The New Partridge Dictionary of Slang and Unconventional English,” Buzzfeed continues, “‘must have killed a Chinaman’ is a colonial Australian expression for back luck.”
But don’t da kidz realise? Niki came here from Cyprus. Anglo-Australian racist imperialism must have forced the expression on her, as a wide-eyed innocent from another land. She’s a victim of the monoculture.
A journalist of such deep skill and corporate knowledge as Fairfax’s Matthew Knott has declared that Niki Savva hates Tony Abbott.
So it must Sir Robert Menzies’ fault she’s a racist, surely.
An Abbott hater? Savva can bear no blame.
