Gotta say, as an Australian,
i'm getting kind of sick and tired of all the anti Australian abuse going on on this site.

Australia was settled as a penal colony and some here do have convict ancestry. (many convicts that came here however were often very poor people who were transported for the heinous crime of stealing bread because they were starving or other very minor crimes, as an alternative to hanging etc. After they served their sentences they were released and given land, and encouraged to be free settlers. The really bad criminals that came here most likely died in the jail system as punishments were pretty scary back then for bad criminals e.g. cat o nine tails whip. Or they died building the roads of the new British colony. So i really doubt that many at all of the really bad ones were ever released or had children or descendants.)

Many many here do not have any convict ancestry at all- most probably-; and all here are immigrants from other countries such as Russia, France, Scotland Ireland etc during times of war, famine and so on.

Speaking personally many of my ancestors came from the aristocracy in England and France, or Scottish immigrants. One of my ancestors was a nobleman at the French Court of King Louis XV. Another of my ancestors was a refugee from Eastern Europe.

So yeah, keep your negative, and ignorant comments to yourself if you don't know anything about Australian history.

...

Also, can i just say, that we didn't 'as a whole country' get together and kill that British nurse. Just because two people from a certain country do something stupid and childish, is no reason to think that everyone in the country agreed with what they did; and no reason to blame the entire country. Personally i have never been able to stand radio hoax calls and don't listen to them.

But the hateful comments against Australians that i read on here after the nurse suicide were just crazy.

Don't sweat it, OP.
The usual banter between Aussies & Brits went way beyond what it normally does.

Re: Gotta say, as an Australian,
The quit with the anti-gun bullshit. Your country is still a penal colony.

By law you MUST vote
By law you MUST pay a carbon tax
By law you can not publicly be against carbon tax. In fact it is a crime for a business owner to publicly diss carbon tax. Where is the free speech in that?
By law you can't own a gun in Australia unless you go throw red tape out the wazoo. You are treated like a criminal to exercise your God-given right to bear arms.

Re: Gotta say, as an Australian,
You fail to mention a people with an excellent track record already occupied this land. So who gave the land you speak of after after they served their sentence, on what authority? Violence? Great .... is that what it means to sing our anthem?
Same all over the world, those living harmoniously with nature were replaced with the destroyers of nature. Look at societies ails and if you cannot perceive something is amiss, well my point is proven.

Also, if the crime [that landed a lot of us here] was a minor slight being they were starving, why follow the same system so vehemently? Why not adopt fully the lifestyle of the occupants, or at least merge with equal standing.

I am Scot/Norse and not convict stock also, yet the oi oi oi mentality and profile is rampant. Stealing land and oppressing a people is not noble. That is a self given title for what they seen themselves as, not what they were.

The nurse/radio/media/hate is blown out, as is most of the garbage that stands for news. And people make a career out of this, noble indeed ........

Re: Gotta say, as an Australian,
lol as if we where convicts its just british BS

they also tell school students that natives who canoed here on coconut boats own the whole country

just so the large multinationals can exploit our massive oil gas steel coal and uranium reserves and not share it round

sorry canoe boaters own this vast track of uranium so fk off
and let the illuminati steal it

fk the illuminati could finish of the canoe boaters with just a handful of marines and a few thousand rounds of ammo

so obviously they are using the canoe boaters as a shield against the large civilized intelligent population who they have totally stripped of guns

Many, many people that can to America were also convicts and were shipped over by the English government courts. You are not alone. The vast majority of Americans love the Australians. Please do not let a few hate filled people upset you. I don't believe those Aussie people meant any harm in the prank they pulled. If that nurse had not been so unstable nothing would have happened and the whole thing would have been forgotten. It was just a group of unfortunate happenings that lead to this death. Please don't let it upset you. She killed herself and it was her choice. Anything could have set her off.
