    Technically, Australia is a desert island. Yet, I know there are places in the outback where you won’t get service. Am I right, Mr. Chatfield?

    It does feel that way sometimes, but it’s a continent.

    And yes, there ARE places in the outback where there is no “cell” service … my son works there exploring for iron ore.

    That’s okay – Ginger would have a lot of other comic strip characters for company. They’ve all been on that island at some time.

    Another Americanised strip! There are some places here in Australia we can’t get any mobile reception!

    By NOMROM’s definition, anybody anywhere is on an island.

    @colourbird How is this Americanised? ‘Cellular Reception’ is an English AU Term. We also say Mobile reception and just ‘Reception’. US say “Cell reception”.

    Yes… a desert island continent.

    It may be an English term, but nobody uses that term here (in Sydney anyway).

    You know there are other places in Australia than Sydney, right?
    I’ve lived in Sydney, Perth and Melbourne. I’ve heard it used in all three cities.

    I appreciate what you’re saying @colourbird, but don’t worry. The Strip isn’t becoming ‘Americanised’. It’s reflecting contemporary societal discourse in Australia. It always has.
    If he spoke like Australians spoke in the 20’s nobody would understand a word he was saying.
