But a hundred years before we branched out there was a hundred years of internal peace under the Aristocratic Ascendancy.
And so the settlers brought the values of the Aristocratic Ascendancy with them.
And aristocrats are peaceful, jealous, brutal and love the outdoors. And so are we.
And fortunately Oz is suitable for outdoor sports so naturally we are sport mad. And this is reflected in our medal tally at the Olympics.
We like to win and unfortunately our brutality is reflected in our lack of ethics, well illustrated by winning against the Kiwis by bowling underarm.
This is simply not cricket.
