Don't like our Anzac traditions?

ANZAC Day has forever been a part of Australian history, bringing together young and old to commemorate those who fought before us.

But, when the Minister for Veterans' affairs Warren Snowdon released a report in recent days that stated celebrating the centenary of Anzac Day would divide multiculturalism in Australia, one Warwick man was absolutely outraged.

Vietnam veteran Al Cutmore said he was so offended by the claims made, he wrote a letter to Mr Snowdon expressing his views and encouraged all to do the same.

"There is a very old saying, 'if you pick your focus groups you will always get the results you want'," he said.

In his letter, Mr Cutmore wrote, "it is politicians like you who stir up problems where none have existed in the past. I will not change my traditions or lifestyle just to suit you, and if you cannot accept them, bugger off."

He said the long-standing traditions of Anzac Day should always remain a part of our history.

"I would encourage all Australians to give him the message loud and clear with a simple email to www.warrensnowdon.com/get-in-touch."
