slang Mocking, criticizing, or ridiculing British people. "Pommy" is a potentially offensive Australian term for a British person. It might have originated from rhyming slang that involved "pomegranate" and "immigrant." Primarily heard in Australia, New Zealand. Sydney was a beautiful place to live, but I got fed up with all the pommy-bashing and moved back to Exeter.
