Just now I have posted the following on The Guardian’s comments about another double-dip recession in Britain:
English, I fart in your general direction. You do comedy superbly well. No wonder. You are such funny people.
As an Australian, I feel entitled to gloat. Yesterday, the RBA announced that Australia has chalked up 21 years without a recession, the only country in the world to ever achieve this
The RBA Governor: there is no mystery to this, we can expect growth to continue for the foreseeable future and it does not depend entirely on China. There is no need to fear a housing bubble or any bank failures.
We have sailed through FOUR successive financial crises from 1996 to now. It is not luck. I feel safe.
Today, Wednesday, we announced annual inflation of 1.4%, another new record. Growth is around 6% in Western Australia and we have a jobs crisis – we cannot get enough engineers and workers. Average wages in WA are about GPB 55,000.
Sydney ran the “best Games ever”. We can do it again, any time we are asked.
You bastards have looked down your public school noses at us for 200 years. Condescending, supercilious, snooty, snobbish, bastards. Very funny.
This is classic old and new. The UK is old and decrepit. Your living standards are falling, you are decaying, crumbling. You are not far from being a poor country. You can no longer sustain your military muscle. Your banks and financial institutions are riddled with failure and corruption, DUE TO ARROGANCE and greed. Looting, remember?
If I didn’t love Britain so much I would crap on you even more. I am 7th generation Oz, but I go back to 13thC Britain, yet you make me line up with “other passports”, with the Poles and Turks (sorry guys).
You even fu..ed up the Thames Jubilee Procession!
Your queen (she gets no capitalisation from me) has awarded our former PM John Howard the OM. This is an appalling error of judgement. Howard = Blair. He is hated here, for good reason, yet Liz awards him the OM. (I think Tony Blair is a good guy.)
I am angry. Serve you right, Poms. You are old and in decline. I exclude Scots from my diatribe.
I expect to get flak. Too bad.
