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....

What have the British ever done for us?


Colonialism, slavery, stealing the wealth of third world countries, Genocide, perverting historical records to hide their crimes.


BS .... their colonialism helped develop the Indian sub continent ... & the railways they built there are testament to that.


By killing millions through mismanagement and racism...  Roll Eyes Roll Eyes

What? ... ignore your version of reality?

I know who the fool is ... you whistle I'll point.

Why do you "think" that's what he's referring to?

You don't know for sure? ... in reality that is. Roll Eyes

If Aboriginals didn't have a written language or written history ... what else would he be referring to?

No points for you Bwian. Clown.

You are evidently a crusty old closet pom living off Australian social welfare.

I don't pity you. I marvel at your audacity.


See...negative again.  Grin

Marvel all you like champ. You're wrong in every respect.

It's called being Australian. Put in or move out!

And what is it with you lot and your welfare insults?
Straight up that screams some sort of superiority complex. The kind of jackarse that would have had 10 slaves back in the day....being the superior man and all.

The Poms kept the stinking French out.

Imagine if you had to swap to driving on the right side of the road when crossing the Nullarbor.

I wonder what Phil has to say about all this.


They put the Blacks in their place?


Correct.

Immigrated them into the UK so that London is now no longer a majority white capital city but increasingly a black ghetto.

They were willing to sacrifice our entire country during WWII.

Although happy to take all the sailors, soldiers and airmen that Australia was prepared to place at their disposal for the defence of Britain, they had no concern about Australia's fate when Japan's conquering armies menaced Australia. Their assurances of British military support for Australia against the Japanese were lies. They had already betrayed Australia to the Japanese at the Arcadia Conference held in Washington in late December 1941. They even resisted the return of Australian troops from the Middle East to defend their own country; they wanted to use them in Burma to defend India against the advancing Japanese.

This is why Raven holds John Curtin in high regard. He brought our troops home. Raven likes to think he understood that Britain has always viewed us as nothing more then a colony.

Unfortunately, unlike the Americans, we cling to our british heritage like an abused dog left starving at it's master's gate.

Could've kept most parts of the empire. But willingness for more war was probably lacking too much.

A lost chance maybe. Self-adoration by even the most insignificant dumb buggers will abound given the chance.

My father always said to me " Never give a sucker an even break". That sorta goes against Australia's so-called "Fair go" attitude.

I'm apt to never give a sucker an even break.
