The 'pom' title is usually good natured in my experience, but by no means always so. There's a pom-bashing mentality from some here, and it can be nasty. Take this snippet from a 'news' article from the Advertiser. It was only about about a TripAdvisor poll of the world's best beaches and therefore was - I assume - meant to be light-hearted, but the tone sums up the worst of Adelaide when it comes to the British:
"Seriously, the Poms prefer their own miserable beaches to ours ... Well, at least that explains why they've done their best to turn Bondi into the sort of stinking cesspit to which they are accustomed."
Such remarks about another nationality passed the editorial test. Would they write that about India? An African nation, perhaps? America? No, it's what passes for wit when referring to the British. I've heard this sort of thing at business lunches and conferences as well as back yard BBQs; not too often, fortunately, but I've heard it, and whenever I do it reinforces how far Adelaide has to go to catch up with the rest of the world.
As an aside, the same article has the immortal line:
"Now, obviously no Brit should ever be consulted on the matter of taste."
Now, it takes a very thick skin or a very thick person to have the gall to talk about anybody else having a lack of taste when dressing up here means going to the petrol station in bare feet, or finding out what's in fashion by wandering (likely still bereft of foot ware) into KMart ...
