Extracts from this document...


ENGLISH ORAL I'm Ned Kelly, I'm an Irishman and selectors son, outlawed by the corrupt government. Had war declared on me, by Victoria, by N.S.W, by the crown and even the London times. I did it hard a young man, nor ma or I could afford anything, we did it hard. Its not easy for an Irishman in queens Victoria, I made fights with my fists for money, but I made it happen, we made it happen.

I may have put lives in jeopardy, and even taken some lives, but I haven't done anything of that unconditionally or to anyone who hasn't deserved it.
