BTW. South Africa is one of the worlds most unsafe countries and it is hosting the World Cup! Oh yeah and I also live in Australia just incase you thought that I live somewhere else.
well why dont ya just pi^%$ off then? Qatar is another tiny island that is in the persian gulf no comparison with Australia!

Australia! This is where the knowledge comes from, amongst other places.

In the a similar way South Africa will now assist Brazil for 2014.

Or the 20,000+ fans who turned up at 4am in 5deg weather at Sydney Fan Fest(nevermind the 20,000 who were locked out and turned away due to over capacity)....

At the moment,the team is far from good enough.In saying that,I hope the FFA mob in RSA relay the true support for the National Team to FIFA and not just base it on one poor performance against a team which in all likely way win the tournament.
I was at the match. Ozzies were very loud and the national anthem was sung by all of them.

Although more Ozzies should have come given the superb match day and Host city experience. I will share my images later if anybody is interested.

Secondly: What Sporting culture you are speaking about?
1. Chappel advising to bowl underarm against Kiwis?
2. Bloody Thirsty hounds who never played in the spirit of the game as accepted by Australian Public/Politicos and Sporting legends also.

Do not give this crap about OZ being a saint or having a superior Sporitng heritage or spirit.
Can post hundreds of such examples to prove the other way about OZ.
So pls restrain from belittling other bids for their sporting history and clean up your own backyard.
Continue to provoke forumers and your posts will be deleted. This is a clear trend from thread to thread.

Please consult forum guidelines.

Lets please get back on topic.

Sorry to raise this but Australia has a rich human history dating back 60 000 years. The modern "Political State" of Australia was founded in 1901 so yes Lords was inaugurated before the "Commonwealth of Australia" had come into existance.
Guess what, the "Republic of India", India's current political platform is 49 years younger than Australia's so Lords precedes the "State" of India as well.

The following Sovereign States are older than the establishment of Lords:
Argentina
Columbia
Paraguay
Haiti
USA
Venezuela
Oman
Thailand
Andorra
Denmark
Netherlands
Norway
San Marino
Spain
Sweden
UK
Vatican City

Not that many mate.

Firstly, it's Dubai World who has all the debt not DUBAI!

Secondly it was the Government of the UAE who helped Dubai World with its debt.

Lastly, Dubai also paid some of Abu Dhabi's property developers debt in the process.

BTW. some corrupt Australians also contributed to Dubai World's debt problems.

Too bad there are no WC venues for Darwin or Hobart. And there is also a decision of which of Australia's two largest stadiums can host the final: the Melbourne Cricket Ground (because of its larger capacity) or the Stadium Australia (the National Stadium). A poll should be created.
