As an Aussie working in London, I was copping an absolute hammering on Thursday and Friday. Coming in to work on Monday, not a peep. I wasn’t even nasty about, I didn’t rub anyone’s noses in it (much)
Schoolboy error by your colleagues there. Having worked with Australians, Saffers, Kiwis, Pakistanis and Indians in various different jobs, I have learned the hard way to keep my mouth shut until at least tea on Day 4*. Anything else is just a hostage to fortune.

*And even then I'm conscious of the enormous gamble I'm taking.
