Whinging Poms

I've had an epiphany or something. The Australians are right: the British, especially the English, DO whinge all the time. Complain, complain, complain. For example, a man was on telly about his business partner who was missing over the Atlantic in that French plane, and all he could talk about was how no-one appeared to be answering the phone at Air France.

Once you realise this, and open your ears, all you hear is whinging. Nobody ever gets a cloth out to clear up the spilt milk, they just stand around crying over it. Like that Caroline Flint. She doesn't get promoted so she alleges mysoginy. She'd been singing a different song the day before.

I wonder if there are any ESOL or Language Testing jobs in Australia?
