There are at least some people in Sydney HATE WESTIES. If you state that you are proud to be a westie, they will think that you are a stupid person who likes throwing bottles at cars. They will not take the sensible way out and think, oh, look there is a flaw in my belief, maybe it s wrong. They will treat you very badly. They will dislike you. They do this out of IGNORANCE and stubbornness. They say, this is my belief and how dare you challenge its validity! It is a very sad state of affairs.
