Can't help but wonder if this incident is part of our British export to Australia. Australians don't seem to have the same gang coulture, but that's not to say it doesn't exist.
Funny you should say that, I was reading a similar post about binge drinking/yob culture in Perth with the 'postee' pointing the finger at the number of Brits now living there

Everywhere has its own set of problems.
Well if it is the brits or it isn't, it's still only a minor incident compared to the UK, I'm sure the Birmingham Mail wouldn't have bothered printing a story like that.

There are a group of "lads" that hang around the mall, there all times of day or night, they dont seem to work or go to school, I dont know if they are part of the "ehc" gang but I do know they have a strange Aussie/ english accent and they still wear the baseball hats and trackkies that I remember being "chav" clothing before I left the UK.
Also I have an oz friend whose son was beaten up by a "bloody pom" (as she called him) who had only been here a few weeks! NICE!
Its so sad, I just don't know why some act like this! Perhaps I'm showing my age!
