Re: President Biden?

That got me thinking and I found this - https://qz.com/1748903/how-2020-us-democratic-candidates-compare-to-global-politicians/

Re: Post EU Referendum...Part II

I missed that - thanks DLD.

Re: Georgia on my mind

Are you or your spouse a USC?

If not, what visa are you planning to make the move on?

Re: Melbourne Metro restrictions

It would be so much better if you used data to back up your opinions rather than throwing random numbers around.

As a percentage of GDP. yes WA's contribution is lower than NSW, VIC and QLD, but...

Re: President Biden?

You need to read what was written again - MP didn't describe ACB as a check out chick, it was a situational analogy.

Re: Gap Training 2019

What state are you planning to travel to?

In SA you can get a supervised workers license from CBS with your OTSR, and complete gap training with PEER.

Re: Some Queensland coast climate advice please

Depends if what was stated was factual and accurate or not.

If someone is stating an opinion, I'd probably just nod and agree until they went away :lol:
