America - its all a bit odd...

You'd rather we used Paul Hogan in full Crocodile Dundee garb backed by black fellas playing digeree-dos? No pleasing some people it seems. :?

'Britain had been shipping convicts to America for decades before they started sending them to Australia. In fact, it was precisely because of America’s fight for independence that the Brits had to start sending their criminals to Australia. But from 1718 until 1775, convict transportation to the American colonies flourished. Some estimates claim that almost 10 percent of migrants to America during this time were British convicts.'

Meanwhile back on the subject of our unusual colonial allies, one of the more senior (knackered old sh1t) members of the shooting club does occasionally show up wearing his Vietnam Vet base ball cap.
