For the benefit of the Aussies here I'd just like to say this particular pom finds THIS little stunt absolutely bl**dy brilliant, despite the vast amount of whinging that seems to be going on. So much for the British sense of humour...

Its must be similar to the sense of convict humour that the Aussies had when we won the Rugby World Cup and the Ashes last time.And of course just wait till we win them again this year,then all the whiging aussies will start.

My brother is a keen cricket fan.

He noted that Australia played Pakistan last summer and the English played Pakistan in England not long ago.

In spite of Pakistan throwing matches, he has judged the English form to be much better than the Australian form.

England does not need to win the series to retain the Ashes. You only need to draw the series.

It’s a real worry!

Brilliant -

But the council was not amused by the "inappropriate and insulting" stunt.

Like you said Hertston - sense of humour failure. We're not all stuck up ponces in the UK - there are still a load of us who can laugh...although admittedly the number is shrinking rapidly it seems.
