For others they love it. It seems like 90% of people on here are heading to those type of estates I just wonder whether the percentage should be lower as they can make some british immigrants miserable?

I know you're not necessarly talking just about Cleveland, but it doesn't really fall into that bucket. A lot of it is quite established, has is its town centre, shops etc...it does have a bit of character. It's a nice spot, but I would still fit into that rather be closer to the action category.

Aint that the truth.... :thumbup:

Which is why I generally always listen to those people that flog electricity supply at the door.

Just about to pay the last Red Energy bill who upped their base price to 20.5 cents per KWh.... after having listened to a door knocker from Australia power and Gas... who charge 18.4 cents per KWh. @ my average of 45 KWh per day average use thats a big saving, over a year. Circa 365 bucks or there abouts.... or the equivalent of getting 4+ months of internet connection for nout.
