    Australia. The Right To Leave

    Found this in my inbox, cant say I disagree, in fact if you substitute Aus for GB ....

    Australia - The Right to Leave




    Our Country - YOU Have the right - the right to leave !

    After Sydney not wanting to offend other cultures by putting up Xmas
    lights.

    After hearing that the State of South Australia changed its opinion and
    let a Muslim woman have her picture on her driver's license with her
    face covered.

    This prompted this editorial written by an Australian citizen.
    Published in an Australian newspaper.

    Quote:

    IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It
    I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some
    individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali, we
    have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians.

    However, the dust from the attacks had barely settled when the
    "politically correct" crowd began complaining about the possibility
    that our patriotism was offending others. I am not against immigration,
    nor do I hold a grudge against anyone who is seeking a better life by
    coming to Australia.

    However, there are a few things that those who have recently come to
    our country, and apparently some born here, need to understand.

    This idea of Australia being a multicultural community has served only
    to dilute our sovereignty and our national identity. As Australians, we
    have our own culture, our own society, our own language and our own
    lifestyle.

    This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials
    and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom.

    We speak ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese,
    Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part
    of our society, Learn the language!

    "In God We Trust" is our National Motto. This is not some Christian,
    right wing, political slogan. We adopted this motto because Christian
    men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this
    is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on
    the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you
    consider another part of the world as your new home, Because God is
    part of
    our culture.

    If the Southern Cross offends you, or you don't like " A Fair Go",
    then you should seriously consider a move to another part of this
    planet.

    We are happy with our culture and have no desire to change, And we
    really don't care how you did things where you came from.

    This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you
    every opportunity to enjoy all this.

    But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag,
    Our Pledge, Our National Motto, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage
    you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom,

    "THE RIGHT TO LEAVE".

    If you aren't happy here then f#@* off! We didn't force you to come
    here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.
    Pretty easy really, when you think about it.

    I figure if we all keep passing this to our friends (and enemies) it
    will also, sooner or later get back to the complainers,
    lets all try, please.

    I really don't understand why these people who go to other countries want to hang on to their own culture. If what they left was so superior, why did they leave it? Also, why do some seem to go out of their way to antagonise their hosts by absolutely refusing to integrate, going so far as point blank refusing to learn the language?

      Imagine writing that here...

      Good for the Ozzies - sounds like the right type of attitude there unlike this sick place run by the pinkos.
      If you think my attitude stinks, you should smell my fingers.

        Human nature I guess. Brits do it overseas (Spain, Aus, almost any major city has a big ex-pat Brit community). Go down Earl's court and spot a non-Antipodeon.

        I've done it myself for different reason's; In holland cause the Dutch plain just don't want to meet new friends (Superficially friendly as they are), in Aus cause I needed some fellow football fanatics, in America cause the seppo mindset is pretty hard to relate too. Not that I was exclusively ex-pat but until you've been in thier shoes then I'd hold back from judging too harshly.

        Though I'd agree on the critisism part - if you don't like it, leave. But then again, I've never experienced a bigger bunch of whingers anywhere in the world than the English

          snaw: I go out of my way to avoid the British ex-pat community, they really are dire most of them, agree they do whinge terribly, and you can well understand why they need some other way to socialise.

          I feel I get on quite well when in Holland, I find them most friendly and sociable. Have to say though the area I spend most of my time in is a quite religious community (got wispered about for starting to weed the garden on a Sunday once, and a girly even mentioned it in a bar months later.)

          The Scandinavians are really quite intolerant, for all the veneer of tolerance. Speak the language though and they are fine. Though there are a good few politicians cashing in on them that refuse to work and refuse to learn the language. And when you get in a Roskilde taxi and want to be taken to Roskilde Cathedral and the taxi driver doesn't know where it is, that sort of plays into the extremists hands.

              As an expat I had this conversation with Adolf, a German friend of mine.
              He said there is a distinct difference between those working abroad for a short period and those wishing to migrate on a more permanent basis.
              The temporaries are welcome as long as they behave as good guests.
              The migrants are welcome as long as they adapt to the predominant culture.
              What he, and I, object to are those who not only wish to migrate, but wish to bring their ways with them AND inflict them on thier hosts.

              BTW. I find the Scots, Irish and Welsh do a lot more whinging than the English, the rest of the world cant tell us apart so say the English whinge a lot.

                Nope, the English win that race hands down. No contest. And from my experience the rest of the world (Outside of the US) has absolutely no problem telling us apart.

                While we share traits in common from having a shared upbringing (Telly, papers, football) I personally think the 'minority' countries in the UK have very different world outlooks and viewpoints, and very different characteristics. Although the northern English probably come close on some counts.

                  I have no problems with people who bring their culture with them, especially if they have kids.

                  What I DO have problems with...is when they expect you to follow their customs in your country or when they try to "inflict" their beliefs on to you (ie. no christmas tree's or celebrations etc).
