What does A fair go mean in Australia?
A fair go means a decent chance, a reasonable opportunity, to do or complete something. For example, a boss may give a new employee "a fair go" to see if he can prove his worth. A school student may give an exam "a fair go" even if he didn't study. A mother-in-law may give her new daughter-in-law "a fair go" before judging her cooking capabilities! If you don't give someone or something "a fair go", you are not giving them an equal, fair chance to prove themselves.
