They should have hired Greg Ritchie.

Any links to audio of the incident?

Was Nixon auditioning for a gig as the warmup act for the upcoming Monty Python reunion show?

Pure schadenfreude!

Maybe the ABC is trying to cover it up, since it would appear the ABC is partially responsible:

The Alice Springs ABC FaceBook page asked readers before the match to suggest their "cheeky tips on how to introduce the English cricketers as they walk out to bat at Traeger Park", saying Nixon "might read out your cheeky sledges at the game".

'...piss-take on Monty Panesar'

I see what you did there. Piss Be Upon Him.

Glad it did not go unmentioned.

Squatocrocat on the Boyne

All I could think of was the Admiral Graf Spee.

Pole in Ireland

Very rollicking Squatocrocat but not as rollicking as this.

Grace Knight sings for Oztralia

It's all moot now, Boy-os.

Riding down the Thames

Excuse that last song, I knew I should have gone with old style rag singers:

It's all moot, and hair suites, now boy-Os.

(This one's going out to Trott, and fellow likely English lads, padding up in their Bristol double brick squat. It's Gyps to Bristol, and roasted White Swans on the Lune from Cocker)

No proof either way, without any evidence, but with a fully peer-reviewed gut reaction, I'm inclined to believe the ground announcer: Ashes tour match ground announcer denies racist slur.

Big Ramifications

I went to Bali for the first time less than 2 years ago. I lost count of how many of the locals blurted out "G'day mate!" in a near perfect Strine accent as I walked past.

Not once did I clutch my chest and remark "A NON AUSTRALIAN MIMICKING MY ACCENT!! What a racist swine he must be!"

Forget the "did he?" argument. Why, exactly, is that a racist thing to do? Childish? Yes. So old it's got grey whiskers on it? Yes. Racist???? Jeez people of colour can be precious pains in the ass sometimes.

Your article defames me. Please amend.

Already done it, David (if you are the real David Nixon):
