:'(5848122An Australian accused of "mooning" the Queen in Brisbane yesterday has been condemned by angry Britons.

Sydney's Liam Warriner, 22, admitted to reporters yesterday that he exposed his rear end to the monarch as she travelled along Kingsford Smith Drive on her royal visit.

According to reports, he had the Australian flag wedged between the cheeks of his bare bottom when he exposed himself at about 11.40am.

It was unlikely the Queen saw Warriner's exposed backside, a police spokesman said today
While flashing a V for victory sign yesterday, Warriner declared "I mooned the Queen".

"Everybody's seen someone's butt, come on. You see it on TV all the time, you see it in movies, it's accepted in PG rated programming these days, but yet it's an offence to the Queen," he told The Courier Mail.

English tabloid The Daily Mail reported on the incident, labelling Warriner "remorseless".

The article drew a furious reaction from its readers.

"A citizen for Australia to be proud of. I bet his parents think he's wonderful!" Onthereceivingend, Somewhere in England, wrote.

"Maybe all the Australians who regularly write disparaging things about the English might like to consider the vulgarity of one of their own people. Not only was it disgusting and disrespectful but also a public offence. Hope he gets a good fine for it," Despairing citizen, UK, contributed.

John of Pompey wrote of Warriner's decision to put the Australian flag in between his cheeks: "All it is fit for if idiots like this are typical."

There were some messages of support for the Sydney man, with an American reader giving Warriner's actions the thumbs up.

"Well done! May the Aussies never loose (sic) their rugged, outback culture and sense of humor (sic). Too bad Slim Dusty is gone, I'm sure he would have appreciated that and then done an Aussie C&W song about mooning the Queen," wrote Pete Sagi, of St Louis, Missouri.

 On his Facebook page, Warriner proudly showed off news reports of the incident, with friends praising him for "making a difference in this world".

This prompted a series of politically-motivated posts from the member of the Occupy protest movement.

"Just doing my job..." Warriner wrote of yesterday's incident on his Facebook profile.

"As should all people. The spirit of rebellion must rise in man if we are to overcome this elite corporate financial dictatorship we are currently selling our souls to.

"Otherwise nothing happens... nothing you may control anyhow.. centralised control is what its (sic) all about. while minimising education, and when educating always maintaining the current status quo of power."

Warriner is due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court on Friday.

But it is doubtful that the Queen was aware of what happened.
