Your comment may be funny but it is also spot on as anybody who has met Alfredo knows he's intelligent and articulate and knows how the quirky Oz mind thinks.

With that looks he will be probably hired straight away for the next Bollywood blockbuster, replacing Sanjay Dutt,...

Hasn't he already got a job with the Australian defence? A bit like the rabbit at the greyhound races!?

Alfredo just needs to use a different name. Most of the Aussies can't tell one Timorese from another. ;)
