Does the water really circle counter clockwise?

as its such a pertinent question, full of deep cogitation, I'll go inspect shortly and give you a detailed report, in triplicate and date stamped.
Please keep such report in a TOP SECRET folder marked in blue pen. You may wish to disseminate at a later date but I would advise extreme caution.

Does the Water Circle Counterclock in Downunder?
Ms Prins was given a $30,000 grant to commence on this project, with the green light from Professor Frankus of the Northern University of Amilarado, well known for its work in these fields.
The work will be intensely scrutinised afterwards, but the inaugural finds suggest that the suggestions put forward for research may be in fact incorrect.
On pushing the flush button
After placing a chair in position, notepad in hand, stopwatch in the other and assisted by scrutineers, the button on the toilet was pushed.
(a) it was found that due to the design of the WC pan, and the flush design, the water in fact did not swirl one way or the other. There were several attempts to prove otherwise, including
(i) quick attacks when the WC wasn't looking; "press"
(ii) leaning over en masse and using the 'stabbing action' on the button
(iii) finally, the 'slow press' which yielded the same results as the aforementioned actions.
Therefore the conclusion was reached that there was
A. no 'clockwise' or 'anticlockwise' action of the water swirl
B. Ms Prins was left with a surplus of funds
in which case, as prime investigator into this particular phenonemon, she has been given leave to continue her studies, with the aim of presenting a White Paper on the 'water swirl in the southern hemisphere'.
