It strikes me that when an American comes to Australia, they think it is quite English, certainly when they visit Melbourne. If an English person comes to Australia, they think it is very American. Is our identity planted firmly in the centre of the Atlantic? Not anymore it isn't, if it ever was. Yet the US and the UK do dominate our culture. Just musing as I try to write something about Australia Day.
I am am not going to criticise Australia here. It is not a bad place to live, in fact quite good for the haves. I suppose I am, a have.
But that is just me. Enjoy your Australia Day.
