For heavens sake. Enough !

I had hoped the purpose of splitting the thread would be understood & respected. Clearly not , which has given me the grumbles.
So. To be clear. People will not rain on the parade of the 'upbeat' thread for reasons which I have stated on that thread .That same fairness applies to this thread too. Do not seek to denigrate what others have chosen to write here.

agree with you. ive wrote on here and the other thread and people who moan about us winging poms do not know what problems we have been through in NZ so they can shut it. :frown:

good luck to those that live it out! we shall be back no doubt at some point in the future, but "greener" (??!) pastures call for the immediate future.

well your lucky you can afford to move on? where you going to btw?

Further posts to jump on the 'downbeat' posts in this specific 'downbeat' thread which was started to help the 'upbeat' posters, will perhaps be moved to clog up the original thread :sneaky: , which I spent some time farting about with yesterday & then renamed the 'upbeat' thread to ensure it would not get clogged by the 'downbeat' posts thereby hacking off the 'upbeat' posters who wish to enjoy their 'upbeaty' posts without having to view 'downbeaty' posts , which have been given this place to huddle in peace also

Yeh.
