    @1 Vestige

    How bitter and twisted you sound.

    But then you live in a country, which thanks to people like you, is fast heading down the drain of bankruptcy.

    Unlike the Falkland Islanders who have a bright prosperous future, as a British Overseas Territory, and eventually full independence as a new country.

    Your jealousy shines through.

    Yes #3 very jealous, and, there is a lot to be jelous about isn't there? Dumbkopf! Whilst your leader has a son who leads RGlands version of Hitlers SA, and who is an overweight cabbage, our head of state has grandsons who work in the rescue service and fight terrorists .
    Little England whipped your Pumas twice and another Englishman just won the worlds toughest cycle race. You have nothing to be proud of other than a Pope who rejects Argentinas low morals, poverty and corrupt politicians and police. I suggest you read the book about North Korea“ Nothing to Envy” ...its where you are headed.

    Very nice thought by the Legislative Assembly and the people of the Falkland Islands.

    This Royal Baby could one day be (amongst his other titles), the King of the Falkland Islands.

    God bless the people of the Falkland Islands.

    I think your haughty ways are not quite warranted. You have won something this year for the first time in nearly a century (Wimbledon and Tour the France), whilst Argentina has won multiple tennis, golf, and other majors, as well as gold basketball and football and world cups since 1966.

    I think they only jealous twat here is you, as it is clear never in your life before could you spring like a dead cat to brag about much, so at the first chance you take it. It smells desperate and so insecure.

    Really, you British on this board are embarrassing now. Until a few months ago you were caustic but at least not so overtly (and misguidedly ) lordly, but now you people are just way off your rubber room.

    The fact you people at every single thread must so overtly promulgate the UK's supposed superiority is overt indeed.

    An overt signal that one should assume the opposite.

    Do you think Harry will ever come within range of any real trouble, I think there'll be eyes on the ground and in the air to prevent that...leaving aside that being in one of the worlds most technologically advanced and well armored helicopters at an altitude beyond that of an uneducated teenager with a rusty AK cant really be considered 'fighting'.

    First of all they had to find volunteers, willing to break a leg, then become hypothermic laying on the side of a mountain, or willing to fall down the side of a cliff. Better still, why not arrange for an entire shipwreck out in the Atlantic, then notify the press to be on station ready for when William flies in with his bright yellow helicopter.

    Or, or or, get together a group of uneducated Afghan teenagers, give them all AK 47's stick them in a mud brick compound. Then, then, lock all the doors, paint a big red cross on the roof. Then have someone fly Harry there at 60 million feet, so he can safely blow them to bits from a thousand miles away.

    These stupid argie twats either don't know what Harry did in Afghanistan or are in denial.

    What about the interview in Helmand when the alarm went up and ALL the helicopters were being readied, Harry, said to the camera, “sorry I have to go” checked he had his sidearm then ran to his Apache and was off with all the others: staged was it? Not.

    Or the time he killed the terrorist ragheads with the main gun on the Apache and then got interrogated by some twat with a camera, safe on the ground, questioning whether it was acceptable to kill these people. I thought the answer was very mature: “I only take lives to save others who deserve saving: the people of Afghanistan”.

    Contrast this with The Dark Country: infested with the lice of Peronism and the scurrying vermin of La Camping It Up run by the coke-head Maximo “The First Arsehole of The Dark Country”. I bet TMBOA is really proud.

    Despicable people the argies and peronistas. How the decent people must be suffering with this “government” of thieves and wannabe gangsters. I knew REAL gangsters where I grew up and these twats are just pussies. Pistol Pete Moreno – what a laugh, I knew women who could give this ninny a good slapping.

    And then the bastards criticise our Royal Family.

    @13 So Argentina has won all those things(1986 - did you bribe the Peruvians). Apart from Basketball what have all those things in common - they were sports originating in the UK. What has Argentina given the world in sports,science, literature,medicine etc. Sorry I forgot the tango. Yes the UK has done many bad things, but many ideas and technologies (Agricultural/Industrial revolution) have come out of the UK. Even the UN/ICJ came from UK/USA winning the 2nd World War. For a country whose main export is a few mercanary sport players and a dance you do a lot of shouting.

    And someone who would benefit quite a bit from such an event happens to be in the presence of a journalist.

    Wow, this Vestige guy has no idea how Apache helicopters are deployed in the field. He seems completely ignorant of the concept of close air support with ground troops. And seems to have never heard of SAM missiles. Perhaps his only military experience was with the Argentinian Army. Or perhaps he never served in the military at all. Same difference.

    @33 Funny you should ask. Yes, I am familiar with Apache helicopters. We had a couple brought in for fire support when my platoon came under fire in a small village outside Habyneah Iraq in 2005. They were a thing of beauty when they hover 100 feet or so off the ground and return fire with 20 MM cannons. Yes, you have to have balls to fly those things. They often make themselves vulnerable when they provide close air support. I have nothing but the utmost respect for Prince Harry and all those Apache pilots. But of course you're the expert.......

    Vestige- your ignorance is funny as well as insulting:
    prince William - before he flew SAR Helicpters he trained and flew fixed wing aircraft- including copilot on at least one RAF freight flight into Afghanistan - where the pilots of even these large freighters don flak jackets and dive down landing very steep and take off very steep as they know if they dont, they risk being shot down.
    Incidentally on one flight back he was pilot and flew into UK carying back home the bodies of some dead fellow servicemen.
    Whilst here he flew his SAR helicopter with NO back up behind.Before leaving, he and his crew without bodyguards had a night out in Stanley around the Pubs including an after hours “lock-in”. I bet Maximo would not dare try that!
    In North wales he has plucked quite a few injured climbers off the hills with only his crew and no 2nd helicopter hovering behind.

    As for Price Harry - suggest you ask his squadr0n mates and his crewmate about missions if you dont believe. The RAF did not spend several millions of taxpayers money in training on active service in Afghanistan for him to just fly for the press! He would have resigned had that been tried anyway.
    His Uncle flew active service missions here in 1982 as well - despite your side claiming his ship had been sunk several times!

    Quite true BUT unlike you, I have seen Apache helicopters at close range in one of the many exercises the Army/Air force hold in Dumfries and Galloway. They are frequently flown BELOW tree level....15 metres to avoid hand held IR homing missiles . If an assailant gets lucky he could put a burst into the air intakes of the engine OR an RPG which seems to be the weapon of choice.

    Vestige- you show the typical Argentine contempt and disdain for those killed in action in the uniform of the country. Prince William was actually not “ on a plane with some dead bodies”
    He piloted the aircraft carrying those sevicemen killed in action back to their homeland and families.
    It was some considerable consolation to those distraught families that their loved ones had been brough back to them by their future King.
    Your attitiude is so typical of Arg establishment- The horror and disgust that so many Argentine tourists learn when they visit the Islands in summer and go to the Arg Military Cemetary - and ask the guides “why are so many graves without a name?” - and are told the real truth- It is because after the battles your Argentine Officers and Sergeants refused to assist the british in identifying them - The British could not do it themselves as your Argentina would not even issue identity discs to your soldiers.
    And futhermore when your Govt refused to respond to any dialogue with the British army over what to do with the war dead - the British laid out the original cemetery and buried them all themselves with military honours and dignity.
    Ordinary Argentines are shocked and dismayed when they learn the truth. But grateful for whgat was finally done with them.

    Assuming that I was unmarried and assuming that I did not already have a child and assuming that I was not a CPC member if I found myself in need of a wife then I could go to Britain and take your sister or daughter. Due to the low status of western women I would not really consider such an arrangement a marriage but she undoubtedly would.

    Just thought I would stop there and await your reply.
    “57 was a little test for Clydey boy”
    The great Panjandrum has spoke; we lesser mortals take heed..
    What was the little test ?
    Thunder and lightning?- obviously caused by Thor's hammer,
    MJÖLNER . Next question ?
    The sky got pitch black at about 9:15 am and then the thunder and lightning started. It was about two miles NW of me, probably over Ayr bay and lasted for about 30 minutes accompanied by heavy rain. It gradually cleared up and was reasonably clear by noon.
    In the afternoon, we went to Troon harbour to do a count of Eider ducks. Visibility was about 5 miles.
    We then went on to Stevenson point to count the Eiders there.
    By this time we could see Holy Isle and the top of Goat Fell.
    I discovered a washed up dinghy at the head of the point and phoned the Coastguard. The dinghy was named Loch Long V and looked as if it had slipped its mooring up the coast.
    The bloke I spoke with had an Ulster accent so my nearest centre would appear to be in Belfast.
    In the late evening I went down to Ayr harbour to see the Waverley and then on the pier to see what the fishermen were catching.....nothing. The mullet were grazing further up river and salmon were pooling in the basin, leaping out of the water to dislodge the sea lice. They will be stuck there until the River Ayr floods and the fish can head upstream. Is that sufficient for your“test” ?
    Here is your very simple test.
    Where do you live, what schools did you go to and when, and what foot do you kick with ?

    You will burn in Hell for your sins. The Pope has to be celibate.

    @66 John III (Pope)

    Well if you are married then hopefully you are able to have your single child.

    If you are allowed (have permission by the bureaucracy) to have a second, hopefully you will decide to have one. As many people especially in Beijing and Shanghai are hardly having one these days. I think Beijing's TFR is 0.6 these days. That means 3 couples or 6 people will hardly average 2 kids between them.

    Bye bye population growth and with it economic growth. Just ask Japan.

    And even though woman may hold up half the sky, it is in the west where woman are national leaders, major politicians, industry leaders and don't have to worry about being kidnapped by the government and having their babies aborted.

    Yes, how low are the status of western woman compared to Li Fengfei and Feng Jianmei.

    But feel free to head to the UK and try to find a wife. Not sure why you feel they would prefer a Chinese husband. But it won't be my sister of daughter.

    First I don't have a sister. Secondly I don't have a daughter. And I'm not British. And let's just say from personal experience that I doubt you possess the type of assets that would impress a western woman. Unless you have a big bank balance. But then again considering you won't be out dating you'll have plenty of time to work hard, save money and hope that being middle aged and rich is enough for them to overlook your other shortcomings.

    Quite funny that he accuses you of chasing him around when that is all his posts actually do. Chase! Asks lots of questions but then still stays a small target - generic troll straight off the production line.

    Anyway back to True Blue as I was a bit rushed. Already on his second ever post on here and here is attacking. I haven't said my nationality on this thread or the other he commented on. So we have yet another Aussie on here. Frank and me. Heisenbergcomplex's claim as an Aussie easily refuted due to his multitude of mistakes and it didn't taje long till he was back chatting “to” Think again.

    And suddenly outta the blue 'True Blue' arrives.

    What's the bet his doesn't come from my state. Could make some money outta that bet. But will he come from a state I have lived in? Interesting as I've never said which states I've lived in.

    They always seem to hang around and get to know us before their first ever comment. Same MO everyone of them.

    Also just quickly his claim that immigrants can't be true blue is blatantly false. That's the thing about being a true blue, anyone can be if they try. But I don't even try. As for “Pommie Bastard”. LOL. How old was the reference material he used? 30 years at least. And the term's not even reserved for the English but any Brit. That will upset Think.

    Anyway can't wait for him to come back. Heisenbergcontext is laying pretty low, El Capitano is nearly always MIA, DoD should be around soon for a laugh and A_Voice..... well A_Voice has proved to be extremely entertaining I'd say.

    I agree. Of all the posters on here, only 4 actually admit to living in Argentina: Think, Nostrils, Dany Berger and Simon. And of those, I only really believe Simon and Nostrils.

    There seems to be a huge contingent of Brits that support Kirchnerism and then there's the dozens of refugees. Stateless beings that suffer from small-targetism.

    Seems I must have had an effect on here considering the number of Aussies now appearing.

    What's the bet True Blue wont tell us where he is from. Hey True Blue are you fair dinkum?


    Honestly I haven't the heart to tell them that no one uses the term 'skippy'. I do believe they think it is an insult I'm guessing. These days 'skip' is used to refer to Aussies with predominantly British/Irish background that predates the post war immigration. I'm always proud to be called a skip.

    So I take skippy to be a term of endearment which is sorta sweet.

    “If you want to know what Britain will look like in 100 years look at China of the 1920s to 40s”.

    In 10-15 years Britain will have a hypersonic airliner-which was not the case in 1920s-1940s.

    It is stretching the realms of imagination to assume that Britain will regress to the state that China was in during the 1920s over the next 100 years.

    One prediction I am willing to make, that is more likely to be fulfilled than yours, is that in 100 years time the Falkland Islands will be an independent nation, with it's own armed forces superior to Argentina's.

    China now despite its progress cannot manufacture reliable jet engines-the UK remains one of the most advanced manufacturer of jet engines in the world-we are talking about jet airliner engines in addition to smaller examples.

    You said: “ send you back to jail”

    That's an Americanism. We say 'send you back to PRISON'. that's why I asked if you were sure you were an Aussie. Quite telling to get the Aussie vernacular right..

    But I seem to have won my bet that you wouldn't be from my state. It reminds me of Heisenbergcontext saying he came from Melbourne for a single post before realising and changing to Adelaide.

    So where are you? Come on. It isn't that difficult. There's a group of posters on here that refuse to say where they are. Are you one of them too?

    I'll show you how easy it is. I live in Brunswick West VIC 3055. Even more precise... within 1 km of a tram stop on Melville Road. I go to Melbourne Uni and once worked in Craigieburn but now am based downtown. I even spoke of the view from my office recently which pins the exact location down.

    See how easy that was. No need to be too secretive, I still have my anonymity. I root for the Bombers. Your code?

    Oh and my last ancestor born overseas was in Kent. 100 years ago next year. My mum wasn't a Victorian. So interesting as to which state you live in.

    Unlike the Chinese that have been aborting females left right and centre for decades now. And those they miss can always been murdered after birth. And god forbid if they survive that they can always look forward to being kidnapped or snatched off the street and sold.

    “Americanism”? This from a pommie bastard to a true blue Aussie. Rubbish!

    Here is some advice to you from the Commonwealth government -
    It assumes that you will somehow get enough money to escape the ghetto and travel overseas. Points that are important for you -
    “The Australian Government cannot get you out of jail”. (Why would they even want to get a pommie bastard out of jail).
    And -
    “Even the possession of small quantities of so called 'soft drugs' can attract jail sentences or heavy fines.”

    I know how to search for posters on this site. How do you think that I could see that after your initial snide comment that you have only now replied to me. How do you think it was so easy to expose people like Stevie as not living in Uruguay or even speaking Spanish. Or how Heisenbergcontext's personal history that he put so much time into building fell apart due to earlier comments.

    And what publicly available records pray tell would help you? Another question you won't be able to answer. This isn't the US where public records are easily accessed via the internet. I'm not sure what sort of job you do or indeed how much you get out to not know how strict The Privacy Act is in Australia.

    These inconsistencies are really starting to rack up now aren't they.

    You seem to have confused your limited abilities with mine. For the life of me I can't fathom why you would do such a thing and think so lowly of me.

    Here's what you will not find if you data mined my comments on this site:
    My name
    My age
    My address
    My profession
    My workplace
    Where I grew up

    You will find I have not used my nick Anglotino anywhere but this site. Something that a poster called Rylang23 should have thought of. His name leads you to his full name, old US address, new Uruguay address, name of spouse, age, age of spouse, old work places and children's names.

    Even if you hacked this site you would only end up with an email address that I use solely for this site and nowhere else.

    So what you would have is nothing. Really I'm not surprised because you are the master of nothing at the moment.

    ATO scam? WTF! I must have missed some step in your twisted logic. I saw that email and I recognised it instantly as dodgy.

    Again you can't answer simple questions. C'mon if you really want to show me up. What info have I given that could identify me? Unless you think there's a database available that identifies university students of an indeterminate age by postcode, gender and sexual orientation.

    I'm laughing at the moment because that won't be considered easy in Brunswick West-part of the hipster belt. LOL

    I haven't put out anything that can identify me. Wow you really are an amateur at this trolling.

    “You are a pommie bastard claiming to be an Aussie and giving Australia a bad name.” Another unsubstantiated claim that I already told you has failed to gain traction. Especially considering how many Poms are on here. Do I speak like I'm not Australian? Please feel free to highlight them. As a true blue Aussie you shouldn't have any trouble.

    “And we're in the same timezone.”
    Oh! I'll try to not steal your identity now that you've given away so much personal information. Congratulations you have joined the esteemed company of Stevie, Hepatia, Vestige and A_Voice.

    Chinese growth statistics are (a la Argentina) whatever the government dictates them to be. I suggest you do some research on the mysterious 32nd province, the 'Li Keqiang Index' and GDP deflators. Here's a little help if you dare:

    China is getting diminishing returns for every yuan invested. A debt bubble about to burst and its demographic time bomb is finally about to tick down to bust.

    Well when you solve your Taiwan problem then I'll start worrying about becoming a vassal state.

    But I suggest you do a couple of things before your next reply. Lookup the definition of “racist”. And try to remember whether I am British or Australian because you keep interchanging-do you share this login?

    Well you are living up to your new tag of True to Form.

    “Show you up! Is that what you fear?”

    How could I fear that? You hardly say anything. In 7 posts all you have done is:

    1/ accused me of being a British Immigrant to Australia
    No proof

    2/ accused me of being a criminal and drug user
    No proof

    3/ accused me of giving Australia a bad name
    No example

    4/ used Americanism
    You quote a government website (shades of DoD)

    5/ you finally gave one single line to the article to derided the gift
    To a future King with great wealth, what did you expect them to gift? Argentina?

    6/ claimed I can be easily identified by my posts and “publically available records”
    But couldn’t list a single identifying remark or a single “publically available records” that wouldn’t breach the Privacy Act.

    7/ Accused me of being sensitive and paranoid
    Did you miss points 3 and 6?

    8/ Oh and last but not least, “Maybe some time away to collect your thoughts”.
    The inevitable debate shutdown. A frequent tool on here. I ain’t going anywhere

    What did I get you to do?

    1/ Narrow your location to Tasmania, ACT, NSW or Queensland
    Seemingly ashamed or small-target syndrome

    2/ Change your style of reply
    The @ totally differentiates you now

    3/ For a new poster you haven’t commented anywhere else. That’s what a troll does
    I have made a dozen posts elsewhere while replying to you

    4/ You missed some glaring deliberate mistakes even in attack mode
    Heisenbergcontext missed the exact same mistakes. Why does everyone assume that Australian English is so similar to US and British English? Think does the exact same thing with his “what colours are the Argentine flag?” Supposedly you can’t Google that question.


    Haha how true. I said the syntax wasn’t Chinese and it is very much Hepatia.

    And True to Form all you do is continue to come back with further insults.

    So prove you are an Aussie. Go back through my posts and find the glaring errors. Your continual need to reply to my posts is only solidifying my position and weakening your own.

    You have whined about me being a pommie bastard for 3 days now but have totaly failed to clearly enunciate anything more than that. You might hope that such a claim will gain traction, but all I have done is slowly prove that you are all piss and wind.

    It is now the middle of the day here (1.09pm - just in case as Heisenbergcontext keep getting his timezone wrong when he first started here) so you should have no trouble replying in a nice timely manner to my above challenge.

    If you can't, then I guess we might know who the real Aussie is after all.

    I eagerly await your next lame attempt at insulting me. You're sorta fun in a way.

    A few years ago there were many foreign articles about how the PRC is going to overtake the US by (insert near future date here). Now it appears that the PRC is never going to pass the US. These opinions are given by people who know very little about the PRC and usually don't even speak the language. They swing between what they fear will happen and what they hope will happen. In the PRC we recognize them for the propaganda that they are.

    The “problem” to which you refer has been with us for at least 300 years. The CPC is well aware of it. We have learned from a previous epoch and have the situation under control.

    The Chinese government is not infallible otherwise it would see that its terrible demographics and environmental degradation have just gotten them into the middle income trap. It takes an amazing amount of stupidity to ruin your two best assets to effectively get not very far.

    “Every Chinese person understands Brit racism very well. We learn about it from a young age.”

    You are too stupid to realise that you are racist yourself by saying such a thing. Lucky I'm not British and thank God I'm not Chinese. Thank you. Sometimes people like you are it too easy.

    I wondered how long it would be before somebody raised Argentina. You guys can't help yourselves can you. So are you claiming that the Commonwealth Government is an “Argie troll” organization. I don't think so.

    Looking back I see that you have been hanging out for me to reply. This obsessive behavior is is not healthy even for a pommie bastard - not to mention the creepiness factor. You need to get a hold of yourself and get some balance. Try getting out more. Start a social life. Get a girlfriend. How is your sex life? Do you have one? I can't help feeling that a lot of your obsessive behavior is caused by sexual frustration.

    I can tell you something that will please you given the amount of phishing you have been doing. A few weeks ago I decided to look for a news site about Brazil. I came across this site but quickly determined that it is a poor source. But I noticed that there where lots of comments which was unexpected on an English language site about a south american country. I found that this site is frequented by a lot of pommie rednecks and bogans. Do you really want to waste your life hanging out with these sort of people?

    “lots of comments which was unexpected on an English language site about a south american country.”

    Wow every morning the gift that keeps on giving.

    “So are you claiming that the Commonwealth Government is an “Argie troll” organization. I don't think so.”

    Now he's an Aboriginal working for the federal government. Or posting for the federal government. And yeteasntawareof The Privacy Act.

    True to Form calls us obsessive and hanging out to reply and yet he won't comment on any other article. 8 days ago he made a single comment elsewhere. Since then its been all here.

    Now we throw “creepiness factor” into the mix. After all back at post 101 he said he could find who I was. That's not creepy?

    “You need to get a hold of yourself and get some balance. Try getting out more. Start a social life. Get a girlfriend. How is your sex life? Do you have one? ”

    Says the guy supposedly posting at 1.30am. Obsessive much?

    So now we are supposed to believe that someone discovered this site “a few weeks ago” and then decided to return and register and post a single comment supporting Argentina.

    And then has spent the rest of the time here trying to prove that I'm not Australian.

    And then tops it off by using another Americanism. Why do you keep using Americanisms? But the bigger question is why after two days you still can't tell me how I tricked you in post 96.

    But being a sexually frustrated obsessive troll who does have a girlfriend or social life, you will reply again without answering that simply question.

    Hang on a minute..... Nostrils?

    Why are you wasting your life hanging out with us?

    So for someone that thinks sharing personal information is dangerous we know:
    * live in the time zone as me (but keep weird hours)
    * you're now native australian or a black fella I suppose
    * you work for the Commonwealth government.

    The next post timed at 02:05 pm was made by me between 5/6 pm when we came back home.

    Why isn't True Blue an Aussie?

    He doesn't talk like an Aussie and because he keeps using obscure references to back up his claim!

    After his first Americanism, I have been dropping Americanisms in left right and centre and he hasn’t highlighted a single one!

    Words that just aren’t used in everyday speech here.

    He can’t highlight any of them. To an Aussie they would be glaringly weird.

    So, no one uses the word ‘native’ in Australia to describe themselves.

    NO ONE!

    Why? Because it leads to this confusion and that is why I drew True to Form out further. So he isn’t ABORIGINAL or INDEGINOUS-terms that are used to describe the original inhabitants but supposedly he is “native Australian born and bred” – Australians don’t say that. They just say ‘Aussie born and bred’ or Australian born and bred”. If someone was going to use native in this day and age it would be to talk about plants.

    As for the Australian Native Association. Yes I know who they are. As an architecture student, their building on Elizabeth Street has always fascinated me. It also has a good second hand bookshop in it. Alas most users of KFC would rarely step back and look up at the beautiful building let alone go inside. However few people know it as anything other than ANA before it merged with Manchester Unity (another gorgeous building cnr Collins and Swanston – which used to have the grottiest Burger King in its basement).

    I just had a laugh in the office with a 50 year old work colleague that had not only NOT heard of ANA or the Australian Native Association, but laughed that anyone would use that term these days. Unfortunately for True Blue, the Wikipedia entry doesn’t tell you that it was only known as ANA for most of the 20th century.

    “Anglotino knows so little about Australia that I now suspect that he's never been here.”

    I have used FIVE glaringly obvious Americanism in my posts so far (including 1 in this post) and yet True Blue can’t find any of them.

    Whao we have just entered a mandatory tin foil hat zone!
    Secret words and phases are being handled! The problem with my “first Americanism” is that the Federal Government also uses the same Americanisms. Could it be that outside the pommie bastard ghetto the Americanisms are Australianisms.

    Had you gone to school in Australia you would have learned Australian history. That would have included the history of Federation and the part that the Australian Natives and the Australian Native Association played. I would like to be able to say that this would solve your confusion but I think that you are permanently confused.

    In any case I don't bother reading the rubbish that you post and am not going to correct your English. Get real!

    But there is a wider consideration. I was in a car today and there was a program about the Catalpa. This will be another obscure reference to you but is well known in Australia. It involves one of the many rescues by Americans of people who were being oppressed by the British in Australia. The program reminded me that there are many times in Australian history that the Americans have been there for us. If I have a choice of an Americanism or a britishism I have no problem with choosing the former. No doubt that offends your sense of language purity. But then you are a pommie bastard.

    PS you are still a very dull person.

    PPS you need to get a girlfriend very quickly. You're loosing it.

    OK, I am sure the whole of Australia agrees with you.
    Get a petition up to break of all diplomatic relations with UK, stop all sporting and cultural links. Stop all visits from the UK armed forces and stop all trade and travel between the two countries. Stop overflying of Australian territory and ban all UK registered shipping in Australian waters.. Burn all books in English and invent a new language for use in Australia.
    Rename all your towns and cities which have UK connections and rewrite history.
    That should just about cover it. See how much support you get I will be interested to know.
