If people want to put the flag of their country out at the beach, then let them! If you don't like it, don't go and join them! Simple. Each to their own.
I remember the flag debate on Adbrits some 4 years ago. In the end I and many more decided not to bother meeting up cos if people are so sensitive about the union jack flag we'd rather be with friends who can just chill! And there were those who didn't know who was who because there wasn't a flag out and missed out on meeting new people. How about writing out Poms In Adelaide in the sand then.
Merry Christmas and enjoy whatever you are doing! We are at the Gold Coast this year!
I must say I've bit my tongue about the flag debate. I could get really wound up about it but won't.
All I will say on the matter is did you lot tut and say "oh how tacky" when Linford Christie, Sally Gunnell, etc carried the Union Flag around the stadium after winning Olympic Golds?????
Anyways I'm trying to arrange a get together so if you lot don't mind if you lot want to start up your own thread about how ashamed you are of your flag then feel free.

Actually it was nothing about the actual flag that I was commenting on (can't speak for others obviously) but I do think if you have the Union Jack up you should have the Aussie one too - after all, that's what we all are isn't it? Australian English? (or the other way round!)
I just remember how much unrest it caused in the UK when immigrants from various nationalities stuck together totally and gave the impression of not wanting to integrate into their new country, and the comments that caused! By all means celebrate your roots, nothing wrong with that, and I certainly had English flags on my car during the last football world cup (and australian ones when the socceroos were playing!) I'm sure there will be plenty of Italian family groups, Greek family groups, German family groups, Asian family groups, and Sudanese family groups - to name but a few - celebrating an Australian Christmas in their own way here in Adelaide!
Sometimes the grass will appear greener on the other side because it has been fertilised by bull****

This was supposed to be a thread about christmas day and once again people have to start being petty and pathetic. Who cares what flag is flown, isn't is personal preference and anyhow this thread is about the day and if people are going to meet. We will be on Moana beach, if you want to join us do, we look forward to seeing you, if not I don't really care, I am actually not working for the first christmas in ages and want to enjoy the day with my family and anyone else who wants to, the more the merrier. I have had it with pettyness on here, I'm outta here.
if i dont see you have a wonderful day and will speak soon
