Who should decide really whether the Australasian terms 'Pom' and 'Pommie' are acceptable or not?
Clearly the English immigrants who have suffered it the most?
The singularly Australasian term Pom (or Pommie) was most often used from the 1960s onwards along with two other words 'whingeing' and 'bastard'.
The Oxford English dictionary mildly describes them as a 'derogatory terms' for (originally) British and (latterly) English immigrants.
In fact these terms were frequently used in the phrase "Whingeing Pommy…

There can be no doubt that British Socialists have colluded with Eurocrat Socialists and European Socialist Governments to wreck Brexit, but they now see a bigger opportunity - to remove the British Conservative Government in the process.
The British Labour party introduced openly underhand anti-democratic tactics in the 1997 General election, and conned British voters (particularly in England) into voting in mass immigration, multiculturalism and Celtic devolution.
These are dirty politics of a very…
ARE BRITISH EUROPEAN UNION ‘REMAINERS’ PAWNS IN A BIGGER POLITICAL GAME?
The whole Brexit farce has exploded because today the Dis-United Kingdom is in turmoil and no longer has visible “ties that bind”.
Britain is divided like never before thanks to extreme political polarisation, Celtic separation and nationalism, ethnic segregation and religious and cultural extremism.
Even the British Constitution and British Legal System are under threat.
The result of this complete and utter hotchpotch is that…Read more
As a long-standing Geenpeacer I'm struggling with Air New Zealand's current safety video, shot (almost entirely) in Antarctica.
Watching what Air NZ refers to as "The world’s coolest safety video" on a recent flight to Bribane, it felt like I was watching a promotion for Air NZ, the Antarctic tourism industry, and New Zealand itself. For me the safety aspects were largely overwhelmed by the beauty of the scenery.
Mixed messages appeared to undermine the spirit if not the main aim of the 1958 Antarctic…Read more
Goalmouth Scramble: Why football fans around the world would relish seeing Colombia eliminate England
The article linked below appeared in The New Zealand Herald Online recently and if you are English, it will give you an insight as to why, in a supposed non-racist 21st century world, Anglophobia is so widespread.
The author, Damien Venuto ( a NZ Herald Business Reporter) claims to speak for all football fans around the world and uses the football World Cup as a vehicle to peddle an anti-English commentary that is bigoted, outdated, historically inaccurate and destructively offensive to English people…
Having just watched a YouTube video of an Andrew Neill interview on the BBC I have come to the conclusion that I dislike what the man represents, intensely.
I find his air of intellectual superiority, his smug self-righteousness and his ego insufferable.
Mostly I dislike his controlled aggression and that poorly-disguised, left-wing bias that the BBC prefers in its presenters.
I suspect that the BBC has had a policy of not employing any presenter 'of the Right' or even slightly left of Centre, much the…Read more
Anyone who has visited these pages know that although I choose to live in exile in New Zealand, my ethnicity and self-identity is thoroughly English and members of my family still live in England. This gives me the right to be enraged at this time and to demand answers to the following questions:-
1. Why did the British Police, Local Authorities and the Child Welfare system desert our young vulnerable English children as long ago as 2003? That is 15 years ago!
2. How and why were these English Authorities…
Several British private and academic institutions continue to hoard many thousands of folk songs, tunes and dances that rightly belong to the ethnic English people.
These cultural treasures were plundered by British Victorian collectors and hidden away more than a century ago, ostensibly to preserve them for posterity i.e. to prevent them being lost to future generations of the very same English people. However, more than a hundred years later much of this rich cultural folk-heritage has STILL not been…
Freedom means having the right to expressing one's views without fear of intimidation; the right to politically influence the future of one's own country; the right to embrace and celebrate one's own ancestral & cultural heritage; the right to expect one's ethnic identity to be respected.
None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who have been made to falsely believe they are free.
The English have always been slaves.
In researching examples of anti-English racism I am reminded of the mild furore that was created by Steve Knightley's song "Roots" some years ago. The lyrics are below .... see what you think
I still have no idea what persuaded Knightley to appear on the Radio 2 Mike Harding show to explain the lyrics and (presumably) to allay the fears of (folkie?) New British whingers that they were NOT racist, anti-immigrant or anti-multiculturalist and that he (Knightley) is not actually a paid-up member of the BNP.
