And what do you expect her to do? Post news about increasing crime rates? There's enough of that in The Barbie.

This is the MBTTUK forum after all, so of course we want to feel good about the UK.

Doesn't mean we have the rose tints on either though.

The uk is my home,well infact its all i have ever known to be my home "36 years".

Theres good n bad about every where in the world,so rose tints are allowed to be worn,else the bad points would bring us all down

Ps i brough a lovely large map of the world so the kids can get a bearing of all the places in the world
And the population for aus for every sq mile is 7 people/ and for uk its 636 people!!

65 million uk residents in a small area
25 million in aus in a area 30+ times bigger then uk

Like i says stats are sometimes best avoided and keep enjoying life,no matter how bad crime is just round the corner

Don't kid yourself...the majority of the Australian population live in a few cities and they are just as crowded as most cities in the UK.

Maybe we can get it back on track - this is pretty positive:

(And they never had to worry about co-pays, deductibles, lifetime maximums, etc!)

Yes... they even have whole threads over there designated to pointing out how horrid and miserable we all are in here. But i am valiantly fighting the fight with them... only because i am bored as batshit, living where i dont want to be, as opposed to those over there who purport to be happy as larry in Aus, yet spend a worrying amount of time on the internet arguing with other supposedly happy in Aus people over just about anything they can think of, and some even come in here as well!!!... go figure

The ONLY reason crime is falling is because they no longer log every call. We have had a lot of problems with anti social behaviour and myself and all my neighbours were calling constantly, up to six or more times a night and yet when we finally got a police office round, they told us that unless you ask for a log number, the calls are not logged and therefore the police are not notified.

We were told to always ask for a log number as they simply listen to your call and then do nothing about it, it isn't recorded and it isn't passed on to be dealt with.

I wish you every success with your move back but I'd really take all these statistics (good and bad) with a pinch of salt.

you're wrong about that by almost a factor of 3 - UK population density is 246 people per square mile
