Naomi Watts[edit]

Hmmm. Not sure about including her. Is an Australian Grnadmother a bit too tenuous? Indisciplined 23:03, 27 September 2007 (UTC)

Clive James[edit]

Why isn't he in this list?--Jeff79 (talk) 23:33, 13 December 2007 (UTC)

Because the people who want him on the list can't be bothered to add him. Cop 663 (talk) 00:36, 14 December 2007 (UTC)

Requested move[edit]

Disputed - Petre Andre is not an Australian[edit]

Petre Andre should not be listed here. He is not an Australian citizen and does not hold an Austrlaian passport. He is British and never took out Australian citizenship when his family moved to Australia. He requires a visa to return to Australia. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 203.6.164.51 (talk) 15:04, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Well, he's regularly described as Australian by the media, as evidenced by Google News. Cordless Larry (talk) 18:41, 23 March 2009 (UTC)

Requested move (again)[edit]

Australians in BritainAustralians in the United Kingdom — Since the requested move above failed to reach consensus, the format "Fooians in the United Kingdom" has become standard on Wikipedia (see Category:Ethnic groups in the United Kingdom). Moreover, whereas Britain is ambiguous, as evidenced by its status as a disambiguation page, United Kingdom is not. Cordless Larry (talk) 12:06, 24 August 2009 (UTC)

  • Support — Barring any additional information, the nomination seems logical.

  • Support The article is for Australians in the entire country, not just 3/4 of it ("Great Britain" refers to England/Scotland/Wales, excluding Northern Irelend). TJ Spyke 15:05, 24 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Support. It's better to use an unambiguous title when one is available. The proposed title is also consistent with everything else in Category:Ethnic groups in the United Kingdom. Jafeluv (talk) 13:45, 25 August 2009 (UTC)
  • Support: Britain (ie: Great Britain) is an island, the United Kingdom (of Great Britain and Northern Ireland) is a soveriegn state. The given by the above supporters are convincing, however while the opening sentence of the article ("Australians in Britain may include Australians who have become residents or citizens of the United Kingdom, as well as the numerous students and temporary workers from Australia who live in the UK.") makes it pretty clear that it's really the UK that's being discussed, the sources don't seem to make the distinction between the UK and Britain (one source opens with "Australians a plenty in Britain London, England, United Kingdom", which is just bizarre). So needless to say that the sources need to be improved. Returning to the topic of the move, Britain is often used as shorthand for the UK, but as an encyclopedia we need to be accurate.

Mick Jagger and Francis Bacon[edit]

Why are these two people included on the list of "notable individuals" just because they had a parent born in Australia? This doesn't mean that they are also Australians and surely no one could suggest that they are ever seriously considered to be so. Winston Churchill had an American-born mother but no one would ever consider Churchill to have been an "American in the United Kingdom". So unless some valid reasons are provided otherwise then both Jagger and Bacon should be removed from the list as their inclusion seems ludicrous. Afterwriting (talk) 10:39, 20 August 2013 (UTC)
