And I thought Aussie cricketers were selected on the basis of their high moral degradation and were thus the worst.
While I have to admit you may have something about Aus cricketers, boosting how objectionable Aus tourists are is just another example of chavinism and special pleading.
Even with cricketers, we might be on shaky grounds. Have any Aus cricketers flown under the Tower bridge (thank you Mr Gower, that most gentle of gentlemen and elegant of left hand batsmen, only R W Barber might have been better, but he did not go low flying in Brissie). Ask yourself how England lost the last Ashes series? "While under the influence" seems to have been the answer.
And how do Aus tourists really compare with the UK mobs of folk bent on getting drunk on English beer wherever they go?
Anyone wanting a reality check on how awful Aus tourists are should take a Garuda flight from Syd to Jakarta.
From Syd to Bali you will be embarrassed beyond belief as to how awful Aus tourists are even before they start.
Then the plane lands and the yobs get off. To be replaced by
Flight one. A mass of Dutchies, who make you long for the Aus yobs. Mind they have had a couple of weeks practice so maybe the comparison is not valid, but it is still awful.
So you try again another time.
Flight two. The Aus yobs are just as bad and when they get off in Denpasar you think, "cannot be that many Dutchies to get on this time". Nope, this time it is Japanese. And lo and behold they make you wish for all those nice drunk Dutchies again.
Basically, I don't think that Aus can claim any special abilities in the awful tourist line. Alas, we are just average, Edna Everage in fact, even though Bazza MacKenzie did do his best.
