Not as bad as your Prime Minister having a face like a slapped arse when he handed over the cup!
The reason behind this has been well explained and had nothing to do with sour grapes.
All those people, no trouble, just a celebration. A good day had by all it seems, I know English people are not supposed to be allowed to celebrate or feel good about themselves, ever, well maybe you don't know us that well.
Uh, when have I ever said that the english aren't allowed to celebrate their victories? NEVER. Of course England should have a parade. When Australia wins a great sporting victory and celebrates with a parade, we don't make a habit of slamming the losing country.
But your Anglophobia is getting old, if you hate us so much why go to oz with all it's links to the UK? (and bitch all you like about that, it's a fact, and no WE don't care if you go Republican).
Anglophobia!? I assure you I'm not one bit afraid of England or the English. I don't care what you think about the republic and I never have done. I like Australia because it is a diverse country with far more to it than links to the UK!
Most Aussies I've met are great, a good laugh, good sports (in both senses of the word) sure YOU fit in?
So despite the fact that I have congratulated the English team on numerous occasions and here we have English people in a celebration of the win ridiculing Australia - I'm
the bad sport? Yeah riiiight.
And yeah - I do belong to this country and I'm proud of it. I'm proud of the fact that despite criticism from England we pick ourselves up and go at it ten times harder.
Because you see in this country we do not make a habit of belittling the nations we defeat on the sporting field. One link that perhaps we can export to you?
Fighting for the glory of the Australian Republic.
