      Peter Siddle has had quite a good first day. Helped by some shonky batting, but fair play to the man.

    Try explaining to a lefty pleb type that Hitler was a Socialist then sit back and watch the fireworks, what a bunch of mugs, so far I have had:

    – It was a different kind of Socialism.
    – He only said he was Socialist to gain power.
    – I am making it up.
