English cricket fans calling Australians convicts...is that OK?

By | | comments |

The Barmy Army like to let us know that Australia once had convict colonies.

The English cricket team will be arriving in Australia later in the year and with them will come the marauding 'Barmy Army'.

 

MANY PEOPLE enjoy their antics and certainly their drinking adds millions to the bar economy of Australian capital cities.

Most of them are likeable, one-on-one, but in a mass mob rule applies and then they feel utterly safe to utter derogatory chants the like of which Australians would never dream of doing in England, or any other place, for that matter (and I lived in England for six years and have been going to events with the Australian Fanatics since 1999).

A lot of these chants are around the theme that Australians are convicts and criminals.

If you click on the picture above, or right here, you will open a Youtube video I put up (not endorsed by the Australian Republican Movement) in which English fans point to Aussies in other sections of the crowd and call them convicts. Unsubtle stuff, but yet according to  comments from the Barmy Army after the video, utterly hilarious.

My views on why I think this is racism is also in the Comments.

I think it is, but would like to hear what you thiny, either way.

Suffice to say, either way, this is a great catalyst for us to break the final link with England and become a fully independent Australian nation. We don't need to be formally associated with a country in which some of the less intelligent regard us as being second-class citizens.

I am calling on all patriotic Australians to wear "Don't be barmy, Australian republic ASAP" T-shirts to the cricket this summer and point to the motto whenever they hear a derogatory chant from these fools.

I am completing the design and I will be providing more details about these shirts in due course, which will be available from this website.

More details soon.

Cheers,

Dave Donovan
