You don't like people picking fault with your comments do you.

Australia is no doubt a very good country, better than many. I does deserve to be in the top 20s. But, number 2? Well, I doubt.....
I suspect Australia is good at fixing the figures, they are also excellent at propaganda.
Some people are more equal than others.

Yes. No other countries ever fudge figures or treat certain members of society different from others
I wasn't actually aware the survey was Australian though, thanks for pointing that out.

I see no reason for people who have no clue about handling explosive devices, being allowed to set them off around people's homes. They should be banned for all but licensed users in proper displays.

Trouble is many Australians actually believe this stuff,
Australia is a bit of a bubble, they are isolated in many ways , they look at thier country not just through rose coloured glasses but as if they are on LSD.

Australia is overrated , this doen't mean it's a third world country , however it can be a disapointment to many.

You could take the words "Australia" and "Australians" out and replace with country of choice. Don't the majority emigrate for exactly this reason?...

It is choice of course, however I'm saying to prospective migrants to think hard about moving their , Australia is not a perfect world.
Other countries get millions of migrants too ....it's not all about Oz.
If you over sell a country it can be disappointing.
