Firstly, in order to fit in to Australia,(fair enough) they endlessly bash us all over the head reminding us that Australia is "and always will be" an Anglo-saxon country- thereby not allowing Australians to move on and establish their own identity.
Although they are immigrants they think they have the right to talk of "foreigners" negatively-after all "we are not really foreigners-are we".
They land in Australia and feel exempt from the usual "respect for the locals" act-after all Australia is nothing more than a british colony.
Nothing more than a place english white-trash run to when ex-council housing becomes pricey in crawley or sheffield or whichever dump.
nothing more than a place english trash run to so "their taxes dont get spent on illegal immigrants".
it pains me as an Australian(7th generation) that people come here from England for racist reasons(not to mention the fact that it doesnt entirely make sense).
I like England but have come to the conclusion Australia must move on-England has thrown its lot in with Europe(good idea) and the commonwealth means nothing anymore-too few Aussies quite realise that.
When people compare Australia to Texas, i feel honored, but alas I know thats not true-we are still basically English-unfortunately.
new Australians form England should contribute to Australia moving on-not drag us constantly to our past-with the "little-englander" whining moaning and whingeing one hears on this site.
Your comments reminded me of the little englander syndrome displayed by British soldiers in Germany just before the Berlin wall came down (1980's).
They were nasty little shits straight out of sink council estate's across the UK.
They drank swore and offended "them" the Germans.
Seems to me they moved on to Oz .

You can take the english out of England but you can't take the englander out of the english, they breed like rats for a start.

Maybe they can be rounded up, transferred to Tasmania and wiped out the same way as your convict ancestors did with the Abo's.

l agree, l would rather let terrorists into the country then some of the dreadful whinging Poms we let in who do nothing but complain about how OZ
is'nt good enough for them compared to the mother country, " The supermarkets lack variety, the chocolate tastes no good ,the pubs are no good, the countryside is'nt green enough,l hate the Australian accent, etc. Atleast Terrorists give you a quick death when they blow you up, they don't slowly whinge you to death.

At least Terrorists give you a quick death when they blow you up, they don't slowly whinge you to death.

Yep, its gunk!!!

On the coleslaw front, they seem to eat a lot of it here, buy it in supermarkets in huge tubs, but its all boring stuff. I remember the stuff Sainsburys do - coleslaw with prawns, or apple and sultana, do you know the stuff I mean - much more palatable!

Indeed, i had that once, i spread the cream liberally round the infected area and it cleared up in no time.

PS. i would like to add at this point that i have no idea what "bacchanalian saturnalia!" means. I would also like to add that that the reason for this is i am drunk.

PS PS. I have a confession to make, even if i was stone cold sober ( i was once as a lad) i would still not know what "bacchanalian saturnalia!" means.

PS PS PS. I think at this point in time we should salute the people that know what "bacchanalian saturnalia!" means.

PS PS PS. For the people who know what it means i am currently standing in a small corner of Glasgow clapping quietly but admiring you loudly.

PS PS PS PS. My wife has now came down stairs to take me to bed.

Would that be single, double, whipped or (my fave) Cornish?
