About the Accidental Australian

The Accidental Australian is Guido. I migrated with my family from Northern Italy when I just finished my childhood and starting my adolescence, I had no say in the matter (therefore that’s is why I am an ‘accidental’ Australian).

I love Australia, a country which has an enormous potential to be a great society as long as it doesn’t fall back on its own insecurities.

I was born in the early 60’s. Making me a member of Generation Jones.

My politics are on the centre left. I was an ALP member for 20 years but left after my life priorities took me elsewhere. I have voted Green but somewhatI am diffident of their ‘holier than thou’ attitude.

I am a keen Association Football supporter (sometimes called ‘soccer’) and is interested in how football can show some aspects of how mainstream Australia relates to cultural differences. I Also follow Carlton in the Australian Football League.
