Is this a plan to try to convince others with a one sided point of view perhaps ?
I feel very negative about that...

I also feel very negative about the fact that the average wage in Australia is only slightly higher than the average UK wage, it should be much higher :curse:

I also hate the fact that I don't have an overcoat anymore, and that I end up wearing shorts for 6 months a year, I am still not used to it !!

I also hate the fact that Australia isn't just like England :curse:

OK, I lie... But, that's what happens when I fell negative...

I'm not, only the top bit of the Emerald Isle is part of the UK, I’m from the south

Know your history, by the time I was born the UK only had the top bit left. I still get the passport though

So, you are a foreigner who gets a British passport courtesy of some stupid UK law ?
Out of curiosity, do you feel that you are British ?

My Mum is a Pom so got it through decent, I have British, Irish and Australian passports, but I’d say I feel Irish more than the rest, simply because that’s where I was born and grew up and where I’m from.
