In recognition of King Charles’ corenation this weekend… It is the second day of the Sydney [cricket] test. Australia is being completely hammered, and my informant is seated ten rows in front of the Barmy Army. After they had just finished a chant about ‘You all live in a convict colony’, the two guys behind him have this exchange. “Mate, why do you reskon these Poms insist on living in the past?” ”Mate, if you were a Pom, wouldn’t you want to live in the past?”
