Not a bad article actually and probably highlights the fact that the term pom isnt offensively meant in itself, but put it into a context then it goes beyond the friendly. Its quite good I think that they did step in and stop it before it becomes a new wave of advertising and actually becomes acceptable within the culture.

Good point. Most don't mind being called a Pom because at the end of the day if you are one, then it's true. However the term whinging Pom is incorrect. There are as many whinging Aussies as there are whinging Poms, so that assumption is innacurate

Cool Re: Whinging Pom now a racialist remark

That's OK; I'll simply call them "whingers" and "Poms" alternately.
