    Federal Court Ruling from the Courier Mail, Australia

    A seven year old boy was at the centre of a courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

    The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with the child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

    The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.

    After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

    After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Australian Cricket team, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.

                Fingers crossed the Aussies can lift their game. It is even worse getting beaten at home. Bring it on!!

                  They are going to have to sack the useless mongrels if we want to beat the poms here.

                    I don't think there has been too much between the teams, there is an argument that the Aussies could have won three of the tests, with a bit of luck and the weather holding up, I'm not confident about the return series at all.
