  • Just because the shops open to trade & people go to them does not mean they respect our fallen & current service men any less! You can still choose to go or not...there will always be those who don't see this day as anything special & there is no point in trying to change their minds!
    The world has become filled with a fast paced society, and people are busy regardless of the day if the week or occasion...perhaps Australia is right to "move with the times" & allow trading on Anzac Day...you can chose NOT to shop you know!!

  • To the previous comment, there are a lot of tourists in Australia on ANZAC day and they shouldn't have to put up with sitting around with nothing to do for a whole day, we're celebrating our sacrifices in wars, they're not celebrating that with us.

  • ANZAC Day was previously and still should of course be, out of respect a full-day public holiday just like Christmas day, Good Friday etc like it used to be, when Australia was a moral and a caring, decent Australia. I think out of respect and decency, Tony Abbott would be very wise to reinstate ANZAC Day back to the previous appropriate full-day status.
    N.B. Site-seeing Labor Prime Minister Julia Gillard and her entourage will be at the Gallipoli ANZAC Day commemoration for a full day and some!!
