image for Down-In-The-Mouth Aussies Have Sense Of Humour Bypass
An upset Australian yesterday.

Prime Minister David Cameron's poor attempt at an Australian accent has caused outrage Down Under.

Mr Cameron attempted to imitate Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard during a speech at the Lord Mayor'a banquet in London.

He told guests that during the Commonwealth leaders' meeting to discuss permitting firstborn daughters to inherit the British throne he thanked Miss Gillard for hosting the event.

"She said - and I can't quite do the accent - 'Not a bit, David, this is good news for Sheilas everywhere.'"

But the Australian media reacted with indignation, claiming the attempt could cause a diplomatic row.

Expert on Australian affairs, Sir Leonard Nimoy, who is no relation to the celebrated Star Trek actor, said: "What a bunch of thin-skinned, snivelly diggers. Have they had a sense of humour bypass, or what?

"They love taking the mickey out of us Poms when they're belting us at cricket, don't they? But whoah! Now they're crap at it - see 'em stuffed by South Africa last week? Marvellous! - they're bawling their eyes out and no-one must joke about the bloody convicts!

"Serves them right, if you ask me - that'll teach that Gillard woman not to curtsy to the Queen!"

Make Ellis Ian Fields's day - give this story five thumbs-up (there's no need to register, the thumbs are just down there!)
