Personally I'm very tempted to pay for you to become the 601 person this month to leave. By the way look at net immigration to migration and I think you will find that more people are arriving then leaving. Hey let's just hope it is the miserable one's like you and other dreary doom mongers on this site that are preparing to go.

And its attitudes like that making NZ unbearable for many, hence the reason for wanting to leave....amongst many other things of course.
Net migration has only increased because of the lies NZIS put out and the headhunting they have to do in order to ENTICE people here.

If you have a problem with attitudes you might want to take a good hard look at your own.

Looks like we could have found the 602 person to leave this month, come on lets have a whip round for Rascal so Rascal can return to the land of milk/honey and Tony Blair.

Oh no :scared: don't start eating the pies! Well I've got me salads and veggies coming on in the garden nicely now and strawberrys yum so I'll be eating lots of my own healthy produce soon and a few hidden garden bugs for protein I expect

Oh please!
A whip round is our only way of affording a flight back.

[QUOTE=Debs70]oh poor you, living in a country you hate and wanting to be home and all that.

Hi Deb,
Me I don't hate the UK as I have posted many times there are some great things about being here like it's proximity to Italy for example.

ps Re the size of your posterior, I recommend Prawn cocktail chippies, chocolate biscuits, McDonald's every day, sausage rolls and every pie you can find. Never walk anyway (except to the driveway to get into the car) and make the kids do the housework (by age 2 they should be able to do the bathrooms and vacuum the stairs no problem)

Default Stop the nastyness!

Blimey, incredible is it not?

Such an innocuous post could turn posters to something so personal and malicious towards other contributors!

As I have stated I like NZ at Christmas, there again I also liked UK and also USA and also Argentina and also Hong Kong and also Paris.

Always take the weather with you and let’s not get personal about it!



By the way I fibbed about Paris

C'mon guys lets not make this a personal mud slinging match. We are all entitled to our own opinions so lets give everyone the right to air their own views huh?

I personally find it interesting & educating to find out how others feel & its not a case to me whether I agree or disagree. Everyones personal experiences are different & surely there are lessons to be learnt for all of us from people sharing these experiences be they good or bad.

Cheers
Cindy
