Burning effigy makes no sense

Yet again Eureka and it's flag is being bastardised.

How on earth does burning in effigy Major General Krause have the slightest connection with Eureka?

When I think of Eureka it does not bring to mind Hicks and Assange. What utter rubbish!

Eureka does not have to be made relevant to the day. Eureka is what it is, miner's standing up for their rights, a significant event in early white Autralia's history.

Nothing more nothing less.. I'm not too sure whether my late father Peter Tobin would be laughing or crying at this latest Eureka event.
