Debt is where you borrow money you don;t have to buy something.

Nearly every single country is in debt including Australia.

The governments borrow money from a bank to pay for things like roads, education and public buildings.

Where do they banks get the money from to loan to the government?

A piece in history

Sudes and Thompson stole a piece of cloth but they did not know that they were making history.  The unusual thing was that they wanted to be caught because they wanted a better life like the convicts.  However, they were given a very harsh sentence.

The media was complaining to the government about the harshness of their punishment.

The iron chains were heavier than people thought it would be.

When they stole the cloths they did not know they would get a different punishment than other people.

How heavy were the iron chains?

How did Thompson die?

There are different punishments than transportation.
