June 5 and we get to play doctors and aliens with Ripley...believe it or not

1788 All the bovine meals-on-the-hoof strayed from the settlement.
So...they packed up their bags and went back to Mother England, leaving Oz to be populated by aliens.
Who craved bovine-flavoured snacks.
1866 Te Kooti was deported for spying for the enemy.
Which didn't happen to be aliens who gave a pot roast for anything less than a rib-eye.
I can prove it with full details HERE.
1895 Clearly in a moment of madness inspired by beef-eating aliens MP Nicholas Davin introduced a motion proposing to give women the vote. Fearing the uprising of females, aliens and future casseroles the motion was soundly defeated.

Yellow = New Zealand
Orange  = Canada
Green = Australian
Red = UK or other nationality
Italics, bold and coloured blue are links to further info.
Anything outrageous is usually sarcasm and/or humour.

They packed up their bags and went home because their cows wandered off? They didn't even try to find them? Wussies.
