How is it possible to be rid of these unwelcome pests, these blowins, interlopers? These strangers? This is what you ask yourself, and this from a bloke who was one of the lads who scattered unborn calves’ body parts amongst the tents of the unlocals when the Pass was on late in the winter of 1963.
