So if you are illiterate you can't be a citizen? Even if you are born here?
How about deaf people?
How about blind people?
What would be your definition of "Australian English"?
If I speak American English would I be banned from being a citizen?

You really are going to have to be more careful with your definition of the restrictions you want to make

Yes.

If you say math instead of maths, you'll be deported.

Similarly, writing the date in mm/dd/yyyy format will see you put on a plane straight back to the US.

Seriously, though, it seems Grendel has no time for people with disabilities.

Flick Australia.

I am,  VICTORIAN

Jealous much?

I know it was just an accident of birth that my ancestors chose victoria 160 years ago, but I am bloody grateful they were such clever buggers.

Multi-ethnic populations are something I have no problem with at all, but the ones who put their historical culture ABOVE the australian culture, should get the arse. F off back there if ya love it so bloody much you maintain it's beliefs and cultural practices instead of adopting the australian culture.

Not for patriotic reasons, just because we need to all be working together, to create the best future for our kids, and we need to share a culture to be able to do that.

This 'logiic' slays me. Australia has citizens to the manor born who are unproductive or unemployable for a variety of reasons. Thus we should have no qualms importing unproductive/unemployable people from other countries. Did I miss something?

Where did you get that from?
All I was saying is that Grendell is going to have to define his statement better otherwise it is completely unworkable in the real world.

Australia is a multicultural country, so what kind of hyphenated Australian are you?

Actually it is NOT.
It is Multiracial.
Multicilturalism is a Settlement Policy.
You need to stop listening to cultural cringists like Bwian.

Trouble is you globalist progressive experts are not experts at all

If you claim to know all about multiculturalism, how come you don't know that there is an "Australian" culture?

The Australian culture is clearly demonstrated in every episode of the ABC program "Back Roads"

But would you watch Back Roads? you probably would watch it, if only to work out how the Aussie culture could be destroyed in Rural Australia, to suit your "know it all" agenda

The Aussie culture has endured for a long time and ensured stability and peace in the bush and the last thing we need is the poisoning of our culture with ethnic violence, petulance or "superior" cultism

The big cities have been ruined by ethnic enclaves, we all know that, but we don't want that ridiculous way of life in Rural Australia, we're getting along quite well the way things are thank very much

The Australian culture in Rural Australia is a model to the rest of the world. It's peaceful, law abiding and co-operative within it's communities

It's not broke, therefore it doesn't need fixing

Oh here we go more nonsense from the Multicullturalist elite...

Good thing you laughed when you said that, Pilgrim Augie ....  I love Blacks - they make great bullbar ornaments... never supported anything other than separation of church and state, I openly state repeatedly that I prefer people to say what they want to say so it can be subjected to public scrutiny, women have every legal right that men have and suffer nowhere in fact, wops wogs spicks gypos ethnos chinks mussos et al all enjoy the same rights as everyone else, and nowhere do I ever advocate violence or restriction on religious worship.  As for Mad Musso coffee shop jihadists etc, I recommend that all such be dumped out of a black chopper at dark midnight still in their preferred homeland and culture and left to fend for themselves - a very tolerant attitude given their claims to want to behead Australians....

Everything else you list I pass 100% except for a rather remote attachment to Her Maj as merely a figurehead, and not to the Union Jack in any way.

I'm certain Setanta is the same, and the rest as well that you named.

How many times can one person be wrong in one post, you whipper-snapper....???   Roll Eyes
