The "typical Australian" is or was "a practical man, rough and ready in his manners and quick to decry any appearance of affectation in others.
He is a great improviser, ever willing 'to have a go' at anything, but ... content with a task done in a way that is 'near enough'.
Though capable of great exertion in an emergency, he normally feels no impulse to work hard without good cause.
He swears hard and consistently, gambles heavily and often, and drinks deeply on occasion ...
"He is a 'hard case', sceptical about the value of religion and of intellectual and cultural pursuits generally.
He believes that Jack is not only as good as his master but ... probably a good deal better ...I'm alright Jack.
He is a fiercely independent person who hates officiousness and authority ...
Yet he is very hospitable and ... will stick to his mates through thick and thin, even if he thinks they may be in the wrong."
HE WILL NEVER TALK POLITICS OR RELIGION WITH A MATE
