Throughout the 1970s and 1980s more elements were being added to the basic "mix" and existing associations of voices were separating out, to be heard individually. The United Kingdom's ethnic diversity already referred to began at this stage to produce rich poetries loaded with overt criticism of dominant white culture, and making innovative use of dub and rap traditions in ways which others were quick to appreciate and absorb The Draughtsman and the Unicorn: Stories. As news seeped out of the killings it naturally caused indignation in Ireland Always the Bridesmaid. Traditionally the meat was added to the bubble and squeak itself, although nowadays the vegetarian version is more common. The cold chopped vegetables (and cold chopped meat if used) are fried in a pan together with mashed potato until the mixture is well-cooked and browned. There are various theories as to the origin of its name, one of them being that it is a description of the action and sound made during the cooking process Stay. The 85 poets included are divided (ghettoised, some feel) into four separate editors' sections: Fred D'Agiuar ("Black British Poetry"); Gillian Alnutt ("Quote Feminist Unquote Poetry"); Eric Mottram ("A Treacherous Assault on British Poetry") and Ken Edwards ("Some Younger Poets").

There are several folk etymologies for "Pommy" or "Pom". The best-documented of these is that "Pommy" originated as a contraction of " pomegranate ". [10] [11] According to this explanation, "pomegranate" was Australian rhyming slang for "immigrant" ("Jimmy Grant"). [12] Usage of "pomegranate" for English people may have been strengthened by a belief in Australia that sunburn occurred more frequently among English immigrants, turning those with fair skin the colour of pomegranates. [13] Another explanation – now generally considered to be a false etymology – was that "Pom" or "Pommy" were derived from an acronym such as POM ("Prisoner of Millbank"), POME ("Prisoner of Mother England") or POHMS ("Prisoner Of Her Majesty's Service"). [14] However, there is no evidence that such terms, or their acronyms, were used in Australia when "Pom" and "Pommy" entered use there Resurrection Shuffle.
