He's obviously British, Sean. My take is that he's not trying to change his place of birth.

I just think he has seen it all. I wonder a bit about some migrants too. Seems there are no bounds to the people that arrive on these shores.

It seems to me that Brits are far more law abiding than our Oz counterparts. Maybe the Aussies should be more prepared to comply with other countries law, then people would accept them as the larrikins they try to be.

You sound quiet offended, by my statement, it was light hearted dig.....
Yes i was a pom, 47 years ago but when you live in a country for this long i don,t tend to think like one, and never having the urge to return to the old country, even for a holiday i guess i maintain the status quo......mm

I'm not offended in the slightest, I just find it amusing that you seek to provoke a response with the use of "your & we" when the reality is, your post should actually read:

275yrs and We're still sending them here

Surely your not trolling for a response? It's strange though, living out here in the bush we find that the bitterest people, the ones who are the most resentful anti British, are usually, either poms themselves [50 or over] or 1st generation "Aussies" The rest aren't bothered & are generally excepting & friendly. Maybe you've spent a lifetime trying to fit in & it makes you all bitter towards your fellow poms

My god you have got yer knickers in a twist, Is Gympie getting to you , it was not an attempt to troll any thing , just highlighting a news artical that i thought might be intresting to some people on here.
But in your eyes it was because of a miss placed word ,an attempt at forum sabotage and anarchy , about time you gave up being a mod, it is getting to you.
And as for your assement of me you are totally wrong , and offensive i was a small child when i came here and have very little recollection of life in the UK, so what makes you think i am resentful of some thing i know little about......mm
