Most Australians - pro-British or not - are very proud of the way we have dealt with very mixed immigration over the last half century or so. Anything that sounds like we are unhappy with that or that we are talking about a 'white' club will cause enormous problems and be very hard to talk down. I'd rather not let that kind of line take hold, even though I run the risk of sounding petty in the process.

I understand that the term may be controvertial because of its undertones; I was just pointing out that it is not usually meant in that way. I'm sure you know that anyway!
