Ok this is from Wikipedia:
The term pommy, pom or pomme, in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa, commonly denotes a person of British (usually of English heritage) origin. A derogatory term, it was controversially ruled no longer offensive in 2006 by the Australian Advertising Standards Board and in 2010 by the New Zealand Broadcasting Standards Authority.[1] Despite these changing views, many British people or those of British origin consider the expression offensive or racist when used by people not of British origin to describe English or British people, yet acceptable when used within that community: for example, the community group British People Against Racial Discrimination was among those who complained to the Advertising Standards Board about five advertisements poking fun at "Poms", prompting the 2006 decision.[2

Alternative names for English;
* Sassenach - used to describe the English, by their immediate neighbours: the Scots, the Welsh who use the word Saesneg and the Irish. The term is derived from the original name of the Germanic settlers in what is now England - the Saxons.

* Sais - The Welsh word for Englishman, Saesnes is the female form. The Cornish word for an Englishman is "Sows", and the Cornish word for the English language is "Sowsnek".

* les goddams - During the Hundred Years War, the French took to calling the English les goddams because of their frequent use of expletives.

* Left-legger - Although it is traditionally related to a Protestant, it is often also used, traditionally by the Irish, towards a British person, usually one from Northern Ireland.
Alternative names for Scottish

* Scots
* Jock
* Jimmy

[edit] Alternative names for Welsh

* Taffy
So there ya have it, all in a nutshell.

HHhmmmm I dunno how to take that, literally or figuratively there's a lot of nuts here that's for sure, but it's an interesting subject. They have details on how these names came about and some aren't so clear-cut but are quite clever. One detail left out of this is the reference of the French of today and what they like to say about the British;

Today, the French enjoy calling the English Rosbifs (French pronunciation: [ʁɔsbif]) due to their tendency to turn bright red from over-exposure to the hot French sun—particularly when holidaying in the warmer climate of Southern France. But the original explanation of this French term is that rosbif referred to the English style of cooking roast beef, and especially to the song The Roast Beef of Old England.[6] In Portugal, the term bife (literally meaning steak, but sounding like beef) is used as a slang term to refer to the British. There is a feminine form, bifa, mainly used to refer to British female tourists.

Roast beef!! The same as calling them red necks;
In South Africa the term 'Pom' may also be used, while Afrikaans speakers use the term rooinek (literally 'red neck', another reference to sunburning)

The term is not taken so casually here in the USA, but then it doesn't mean the same thing to us. I like that Rosbif, might take to using that myself. Have to trill the 'r' or something to make it sound polite. It's like having another language to call people names, I love it!! "Whatdjew call me?" Oh it means I like your skin color! (you freaky red neck)

Lovingly
Suz

Out here in Oz, it is usually said that the term POM (POHM) came from the original English settlers in Australia. These "settlers" did not have a choice as they were Prisoners Of Her Majesty...hence POHM, later shortened to POM or POMMIE. And of course, all poms come from the Sovereign Land of Pomgolia. Very Happy Very Happy Laughing Laughing Laughing

Looking at gohun's post...methinks we have another bot .

Cheers, Vince

I was born in England, but haven't lived there for 45 years, and I've been called pretty near everything - including a-hole :-D. The last time I was called a Pom was in the early '70's from an Aussie friend, so I called him a camel humper. Aus does have the largest flock of camels.

I really don't care what you call me, just don't call me late for dinner. Razz

Repete, I get the feeling that you might get more 'effect' with "sheep-stumper" instead of "camel-humper" Smile

Maybe today, but back then we didn't have the ethnic problems that now going on. If you know what I mean? And you do.
