You’ve Got Buckley’s

You’ve Got Buckley’s thumbnail

William Buckley, who would at various times also be known as “The Wild White Man” and “The Anglo-Australian giant”, was a man who bore little respect for convention, authority, nor the confines of society. Over the course of his life his experiences would range from fighting in the Napoleonic wars, sailing across the globe, and spending a significant part of his life living in the Australian bush, prior to the settlement of the continent’s south-east. After him, the expression “you’ve got Buckley’s chance” has come to describe having no chance for success, or endurance. So was his life a success or failure?
