I do.

Do you?

By the way, do try and think of something more intelligent than ''piss off back to the UK then''. You know who you are.

YES, YES, YES, that is until I got on the internet one day and found this amazing online community, of Brits supporting and helping fellow Brits. It is incredible*, you can say how dull and boring you used to find Perth, without anyone telling you to "piss off and go home" .

* –adjective
1. so extraordinary as to seem impossible: incredible speed.
2. not credible; hard to believe; unbelievable: The plot of the book is incredible.

I've always alikened the UK to a nightclub and Australia to a pub. When your young the UK is great because there's always lots going on and it can be quite fast paced but as you get older a nicer, slower pace of life is what you're after. Now I'm 35 I'd rather go to the pub.

l guess it depends on what part of the country you live in and what your interests are, if you like art, history and culture you may find OZ dull but if you like outdoors stuff you may not.
