Don't get technical.
Not trying to start a race riot.

Born in Canada. Moved to England when 18 months old

Both parents are English

Grandparents are from Denmark and Hungry but meet in London.

Came to Australia as a 3 year old under my Mum's British passport.

Ten pound POMS was our ticket to Australia.

Lived in Australia for 46 years so consider myself an Aussie.

All Aussies anyhow, even if only permanent residence for mine, but no accent, like yourself, easily seals the deal.

It's funny , but you can claim to own a country if you haven't spent your whole life in that country , but try and call yourself a local in some small country towns when you have spent more than half your life there :lol:

Click other and let us know if that's the case.

I meant white - Australian but forgot to cover the indigenous.

No disrespect to anyone.


Also surprising there has been no Polynesian votes yet?

Born in Sri Lanka (so I picked "Asian"), moved to Sydney at 5 years old. Lived in Randwick but became Tigers fan at age 7 because, as I explained at the time, "I like tigers more than chickens".

I have lived in PNG (6 years), NZ (14 years) and now in Brisbane for the last 7 years - never far from Rugby League!
