Going back to your defense of JAJ, I looked back at some of your posts and thought how pedestrian and hackneyed your thoughts tended to be, which really puts paid to the notion that just because someone has thousands of posts to their "credit", that they are of any value whatsoever. Quality, not quantity.

While I agree with you about the quality, JAJ is a positive and well respected contributer to this site with years of knowledge on immigration and citizenship matters. I still think your response to him was out of order. I guess we will have to agree to disagree on this issue.

You asked for advice and then proceeded to insult the person that gave you some.

This isn't the way normal, mature people behave.

I guess you won't be receiving any more help/advice from people on BE. You'll
have go back to paying $1.50 per min for the privilege of talking to the British High Commission. What a wally

I'm a British national and my wife is Irish, but my 3-year old son is Aussie (there is a joke in there somewhere). Anyway, we're moving back to the UK permanently very shortly and we overlooked the need to get him a passport. I'm sure he'd be entitled to a British passport, but it's very expensive to get one here in Oz and it's very short notice.

If we go back to the UK without a British passport for him, at some point we'll have to get one, but I assume he'd be entitled to stay for a while as an Aussie whilst we sort it out there.

Any advice would be welcome.
Had to chuckle at some of your replies...but had a humph moment when I read the comment "Northern......."beinga Northerner myself....well say no more...beleive it or not some of us are inteligent, witty etc,etc......okay back to your questions, I know if in an emergency you can gain an Aus passport within 3 working days for an extra $78 if needed by a certain date....I was informed by immigration that if we were to enter the UK on our Aus passports on a one way ticket we would be asked a few questions and maybe refused entry...luckily...very luckily lol...we are British and have our British passports....so it looks like you might have to bite the bullet and gain a British/Irish passport for your "little un"....sometimes we just have to dig that little deaper in our pockets that would upset my Dad as at times he has very long pockets...lol...but sometimes it just saves on the stress etc...good luck

Don't know how much he wants to spend, but the Irish childs passport is only 16 EURO for children Under 3, and 26.50 EURO for Children over 3.

All you have to do is contact the Irish Embassy here in Australia and they will get the forms out to you.

They don't use the term Wally so much now... what they tend to do is smack [email protected] like you in the mouth first and ask questions later.

You came on here because you are too much of a tight arse to get professional advice for your 'problem' and then start having a go at the first person who tries to help.

What a Wally.

All those stars have gone to your head, perhaps.
I used to say that at school, are you from the Joey Deacon era or the Stephen Hawkings one? Personally I am Joey Deacon - we used to say 'Joey' or 'Dill' with our tongues in funny positions.

I bet you wrote that on your mum’s PC in between having a pull over the latest offer from Apple and having a chat to your mates in Clingon. I’ll wait for your next response after your tea, as I think your mum is calling.

Actually dill is a bit of an Aussie colloquialism and is common. Interesting you mention Stephen Hawking. Some years ago I called the Sun Newspaper to see how much they would pay for a story about Hawking and that he really was just a jelly brain in a remote controlled wheelchair operated by someone hiding around the corner with a walkie talkie.

Oh, and.....

Well I really cooked my goose there, didn't I. Although smart people might use a different username. Duh!

Is it an Aussie term? I often wonder if Stephen Hawking changed the recording of his voice box machine and made it Devonshire, would he sound quite so smart.

You know if you send someone a text message to their landline phone, the message comes out in Stephen Hawkings type voice - its so funny. Very childish I shall admit but I do find it funny.

Im sure Stephen Hawkings wife beat him for annoying her - my friend said she had read it somewhere but I might check.

Well this has gone a bit pear-shaped hasn't it.

Just a little note about manners before I close this thread. If someone takes the time to answer your question, or share their experiences in order to help you with info, its polite to say thank you.
