Hi NB

A genuine question, honest guv'.
Why does it really bug you that people who dont like Perth moan about it. I can see your 'if you dont like it, go' attitude but was just wondering.

they don't on the whole anymore. Sometimes the odd comment just gets me wound up. All you doom and gloomers get defensive when someone slates Blighty. Anyway I got that one off my chest and feel better now.

I call this the Doom and Gloom Room. It stems back to when a few of the folk in this room called the Oz and Barbie rooms the Godzone.

Glad its off your chest NB.
Oooh, am I a doom n gloomer just as I'm moving home then
I dont mind people slating the UK, its not perfect, (actually I do get defensive for UK when people who are leaving slate it loads but thats usually as they think heres the utopian answer & the rosy tints worry me).
I like alot about both places tbh and will admit the positives & negatives of both places. Just as we may be pointing out what we dont like, doesnt mean its all doom n gloom.

Actually, it's far from 'hell'. Okay, so I am one of the 'I don't wanna be here' crowd, but then I don't want to be anywhere in Oz, least of all Queensland, but to say that WA is hell is a ridiculous statement. We've lived here over 10 years, so I have an idea of what I'm talking about.

Like I said in my reply to some other person The Doom and Gloom Room thing comes from quite some time ago when a few members of the MBttUK 'gang' kept calling all us pro Australia people Godzoners. No offence meant to individuals though (well maybe a couple )
