I have tried to leave Oz behind in the UK, in order to be succesful- I avoid ranting on about how we do everything better in Oz- or whenever something bugs me saying-it wouldnt have been like this in Oz. I try to do things in an english manner-not thrusting my background on other people.
but many English think it is their god-given right to simply ship england over to an ex-colony like Oz.
I agree with all of that Integration has to be heathier than trying to hold on to things that will inevitably alienate you from the "native" population.

Nothing wrong with holding onto your "Englishness" but don't complain when things are different to "home".

I saw a documentary on Sky Travel about a group of ex-pats doing Morris Dancing in an Australian town ...

If it doesn't move on soon then I may be forced to hijack this thread to discuss how important charity is at Christmas!

You can only hijack a thread if people give a toss about what you are saying ...

Ok, let's talk about Meals on Wheels? I'll be taking some of those lonely, old, whingeing ex-poms a traditional Christmas dinner on Christmas Day and enjoying a good ol' yarn with 'em. What'll you be doing?

Indeed, I've totally bought into the Neighbours lifestyle

I'll bet one new star.

Any intelligent progress been made?
Seems to me that there are a lot of people on this site that say nothing...

p.s. Don't forget to do what I do and give generously to the kids this Christmas.

.....and people wanting to go to Oz to reclaim some imagined fantasy about "how England once was"-and when they slowly realise this isnt exactly the case- go back to blaming foreigners, welfare-recipients, asylum-seekers, Muslims, Jews, travellers (of all the groups the English "blame" this one is the funniest- as if a bunch of gypsies trashing a vacant lot really ruins their lives),the EU, America, the Irish, China(cheap factories-no jobs in the UK) fuel-pipes, for thier problems.

Never let it be said that I say anything of any worth.

Will this make page nine? How many pages do you think this one's going to make? Place your bets ... now!
