Is Australia more like UK or USA?

We all know that Canada is basically America's red-haired step-child but what about Australia? Their accent is closer to British and they share common traditions with them, but the lifestyle and mentality seem closer to America.

Britain got rid of its worst (convicts, fortune seekers, religious extremists, Irishmen) by shipping them off to both overseas colonies so yeah, definitely more similar to USA.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

Bit of both, culturally probably closer to Britain, drive on the left side of road and like similar sports. But more closer to America in terms of weather and diversity of population

Not so many Muslims though, cause they send most of them to Nauru.

If we had to couple up the Anglo nations it would be
USA-Canada
Australia-New Zealand
United Kingdom-Ireland

Pretty much what HS said. I would also say that Australian cities/suburbia is more similar to America than the UK.

Yea the lifestyle seems closer to America, and the people are much better looking than Brits.

It's a bit of both.

The accent is colonial twang but they pronounce words like dance, prance and chance the Yankee way whereas NZ pronounce it closer to British English. In regards to everyday life, Aussie has more suburbs and small one horse towns in the middle of dustfuck nowhere like the USA, they still have a piece of Britain on their flag, the older generations of Anglos feel a lot more British and came out to see a young Queen Liz back in the day in their millions. Aussie country music is a lot closer to American country too I reckon. The gold rush in Victoria reminds you of the old west, though the demographics and culture in Australia are changing thanks to mass immigration - much like the UK and not so much the US.

Australia and the US have a distinct identity and they're mostly proud of it while the Brits have caved to progressive dogma way more, I think.

It's a toss up. I always thought Aussie was much more like America than New Zealand and I've lived in both places. But both are more like the UK than the US.

It's really tricky to compare Western nations in terms of which is more cucked/fcked (that goes for non-Anglo countries too. Sweden or France? Germany or Italy?). Canada have done an impressive job of it since Trudeau Sr., but then you look at crazy California, which is the future of America. Australia does seem less cucked than the UK, but then maybe they'll end up a Chinese colony anyway. And NZ have totally lost the marbles after the Christchurch massacre. Ireland fought the English for centuries only to completely bend over to EU/multiculturalism first chance they got.

I live in the US and have been to Australia three times (Ok, one of those times was only for 6 hours but still ). My opinion counts most here but I'll keep it to myself....for now .

They lost the plot way before that. I was thoroughly indoctrinated at school with climate alarmist garbage, ozone depletion doomsday, feminist wage gap nonsense and was lectured to about evil white imperialists and depraved crusaders who rode for no reason. Mind you, this way the nineties. I can only imagine what it's like now.

Though not all is lost, a lot of Kiwis really have a good old fashioned sense of valuing hard work and judging people by their accomplishments, entrepreneurship, they also have a libertarian streak in that individualistic can-do attitude.

It might actually be that Denmark is the least cucked country in the WE/Anglosphere. And we're still pretty cucked.
