Good for you. (I have no interest in Aus by the way), if i could afford to live and work in Cumbria i would, i love it, but unfortunately, the vast majority of us cant. I am merely passing an opinion (mine) of the current state of the UK in general. If you dont like my opinion of the UK - i dont really care.

Don't really care about yours either.

The opinion of someone who is unable to make a decent life, in a rich country like the UK, is not really worth much.

Cricket1, you say you are happy, but to me you sound vindictive and angry. Maybe im wrong, but that's the impression I get. I hope you will get back to England soon. Good luck!
You're a sheep following a headless flock Coda. If you think reading the newspaper gives any true sense of a perceived reality about what really goes in the UK, then you really are just helping to sell newspapers.

Oh, please, wakey-wakey, mate!

Are you not aware that most of Australia is totally uninhabited?! Is it news to you that most of the 25 million or whatever it is in Australia live in a about half a dozen specific areas around a major city?!

Thus this statistic is not too far off being totally meaningless in real-life.

Yes, because someone always to come up with some nonsensical ''plus'' about Australia (e.g. low population/big country ratio) that sounds fine on paper but is infinitely less impressive/true in reality.

You would think they would all be out there enjoying the "wonderful australian lifestyle".

It seems they have to justify their reason to be here but keep harping on about how great it is to strangers. At least it keeps us entertained. I wish I could be as witty as some of the replies you and others give them but my brain has been dulled after living in this place so long.
Very funny! Perhaps with some truth to it too.

You're a muppet...end of story. I've never heard such drivel in all my life. Go back to school and learn to read and write.

Tell us, Oh enlightened one, what does go on in the UK? Where do you get YOUR information?

Either you guys cut out the insults and carry on a proper discussion, or the thread will be closed. Your choice.

Why close it cos some people are being rude?
Surely it would be better to boot out the offenders? and not punish everyone and close peoples threads down?
