Re: Comparisons between Scotland and England

University is free in Scotland, with the usual 3 year residency requirement. Undergraduate degree is 4 years same as the USA. Social care (nursing homes) is free in Scotland but not in England.

Re: The Colour of the Grass...

I would advise staying long enough to get your Australian citizenship, then if you still feel you want to go back, you have your options open. I think citizenship obtained via naturalisation can be...

Re: Wedding Insurance

Re: Why do the police keep shooting people dead?
