What have the British ever done for us?

Apart from the abolition of slavery, the common law, Westminster democracy, the steam engine, Protestantism, mechanized agriculture, the English language, the exposure of foreign cultures, the public health system, the welfare state, and the constitutional monarchy....

I will no longer pursue a policy of appeasement. To all the bigots, homophobes, and Islamophobes at OzPol...

.. apart from the roads, and law and order, and sheep on the table, and sewerage, and tin roofs that aren't humpies made of bark, and international trade, and money, and liquor and beer and wine, and fancy cars, and land rights... what.. WHAT.. I ask you.. WHAT have the British ever done for us?

Women can vote!

But we beat them to that, Reg.... what else?

I know - the idea that women could vote.... they gave us that, all right!

Always one to stick to the negative outcomes, Reg... get over it!  Worst thing they ever came up with!

Well they did take this fine country away from the boongs and had a good go at wiping them out, I'd call that a great accomplishment.

A Cuban man told me that in Cuba there is a statue of the last aboriginal to survive. The Spanish were quite thorough compared to the British.

They brought peace.... most of their law they turned against the Whiteys to keep them in line... look at what they done to Ned Kelly...  you didn't see that done to them Kaffirs out there who weren't even considered citizens, do you?

Face it - the Blacks were irrelevant and the British at least brought some peace to their little warring bands fighting over kangaroo rights at the billabong like savages ...... pounding on their womenfolk in more ways than one .... everywhere the White Man went the Blacks were enlightened.. sometimes physically by mixing genetic material...... you know... coupla years out there in the donga and every Gin looks white as snow.... same colour inside and Whitey didn't beat 'em up as much.

Not a girl over fifteen in Moree has her front teeth... they're whupped out of 'em .... and an Aboriginal I respected told me that..... died of a heart attack at 42.. poor buggar...
