Yes SPOT ON !! allot of Pom's do think they are better than anyone else ...remember we are immigrants and we need to learn to live there way'!!!and everyone needs to also remember ADELAIDE is a very small place indeed word gets out ... and this is there home we just need to bare this fact...sorry to rattle on but folk need to learn to mingle and fit in with there way !!
Agree, I lived in Dubai 10 years ago and the worst people were the long term UK ex-pats, the locals and other nationalities were far friendlier and open minded. In the UK there are still the same issues as mentioned in the original post, growing up in Cornwall I knew people who "hated" grockels and emits (anyone from north of the Devon border). You get small mindedness everywhere, just choose not to associate with these people, its just their own fear & ignorance that is limiting their lives not yours.
Having said all that I often remind my employers, who are Wogs, that's they need Poms like me for their far superior brains and work ethic! My best tip to break down barriers is to remind everyone here that we all share the same Queen, has always helped me start a conversation with an unfriendly native!
I think people often look to blame or stereotype when things don't go their way.
