Well, while we’re on the topic of the BBC website, Dave, I don’t really 
buy this: 
 
http://www.test.bbc.com/culture/story/20150427-pervs-greenies-and-ratbags 
 
As an Australian who lived in London for nearly five years, it’s quite 
clear where we Australians got ‘mate’ and ‘bloody’ from. I don’t buy that 
some of the others are Australian: ‘selfie’ may have first been recorded 
in Australia, but I suspect it was created independently in multiple parts 
of the English speaking world. 
 
Cheers, 
Adam
