    Is it a necessary comment? I'm Australian and I live in the UK if I kept calling people poms here I wouldn't find myself very popular.

    I never get this, and my sister is married to an australian and has lived there since 1980, and has two children with dual nationality - surely we should call you poms, if the common etymology is correct, after all, we're still here!

    Personally I wouldn't use the terms taffy, jock, paddy or yank and I think much the same of pom :roll:

    Just Aussie slang for someone from the UK. It's not offensive/derogatory in any way, it's just an Aussie thing :P We tend to stir people up a little, not meaning to offend, it's just the sense of humour, others seem to get a little worked up over it but there is no harm whatsoever involved in saying it haha, makes it more satisfying for an aussie when they get a reaction :P

    You're more than welcome to call me a Pom, after all, we were apparently convicts from the UK many moons ago. Go for your life with Aussie payouts, I find all the names for an Aussie really quite amusing and enjoy to throw it right back.... investigate the relationship between a Kiwi and and Aussie, we do it to each other all the time and it's all in good fun, rest of the world should lighten up a little IMO Come on, crack a smile and go your hardest with an Aussie insult :P
