    So British!!

    On a train from London to Manchester an Australian was berating the Englishman sitting across from him in the compartment: "You English are too stuffy. You set yourselves apart too much. You think your stiff upper lip makes you above the rest of us. Look at me... I'm ME!! I have italian blood, greek blood, a little irish blood and some aborigine blood... What do you say to that?"
    The Englisman replied: "Awfully sporting of your mother, old chap"

      An Ocker from the bush mighty assail a proper Englishman in The North Country.

      A more sophisticated Aussie would behave even as he might have thought those opinions about the stuck-up pox doctor's clerk!

      Yep, Oz is a land of interbred immigrants, harking back to the days of Transportation, convict nation-building, The Rum Corps, and finally as a place that opened its doors to FIRST, the European displaced persons following World War II (some of my relatives were in that lot!), and SECOND, the very rich Asians with lots of cash who were willing to invest in the Lucky Land and create jobs and eventually, wealth with a middle class. All IMHO.

      Sentiment: Buy
