Australians or Americans, both nations were colonised heavily by the British, Who is more similar to the British in, culture, use of language, and so on.

I can't tell, but what is today USA wasn't really heavily colonized by the British. There were more of other European nations there, so I'd assume the answer would automatically have to be Australia.

Can't tell, though. I don't know either very well.

Maybe, but since it was being used in the past tense, it should have had the 'd' on the end.

The Australians certainly deviate less from the British use of the English language.

Yea, I really don't think there are many similarities (in comparison to Australia) between Britain and the United States.

If you're referring to the British Empire, the largest empire to have ever existed, spanning (just about) every continent and at its height the foremost global power, then I think we had just cause to be arrogant, unlike the Americans who own one area of one continent along with a bit tucked away in the corner and a few islands in the middle of the pacific .

I'd say the Australians were more like the British, if only because I find Americans to be rather un-British.

I agree. There was such a huge Spanish influence in America, and the British only really had a hold on the Eastern side of the US (I think). There's a more British influence in Canada, but alot of French too.

But there are lots of similarities to GB and Aus, we all say "arse" we eat fish 'n' chips and there are others.

I think more neither.

Americans and Brits can both be snotty people, though.

SOME, not all. A lot of Brits I met when I was there were very nice to me.

Australians in my opinion are more like the British. We Americans are our own weirdo culture of our own, as in we don't really have any. For example we use a different measurement system and write words differently than the British do, but Australia does the same. For example I know my weight in pounds, my height in feet and inches, and i write the word favor instead of favour.
Listen to my songs, but only if you are prepared for the greatest experience of your life .

Who on earth voted for the USA???
How could they be any more different to us Brits?

But the Aussies, yeah they're a good lot of people. Kicked our arse in a game we invented, well 2 games actually and 3 if you include snooker. So I'd definitely say Australians are more like us that Americans.
I hope it doesn't seem, like I'm young, foolish, and green.
