Re: Its quite sad.

I've seen a few freckly Scots in my time in NZ (I'm English BTW), who just won't wear a sun hat.
A big mistake in my opinion.

The NZ sun can do terrible things to the top of a Highlander's head....

Re: Its quite sad.

Re: Beware of recruitment agencies, namely.....

Is this company associated with NZ4U for migrating truckers?

Re: Its quite sad.

Tis true.
NZ BE is seen as extremely negative by other immigration forums.

Quite a number of old posters stating they don't post here anymore because of the slagging.

Re: Your kids careers and other such stuff

Just read todays Independent with yet another reminder of why British schools are not the great places some posters on here would have us believe.

Re: After 5 years in NZ

We could send some over along with the oil.

Re: After 5 years in NZ

No, but as everyone keeps pointing out, New Zealanders are already down the scale economically, so not so far to fall.

Lots of space around and better survival skills with a "make do and mend"...

Re: After 5 years in NZ

Five years is a long timescale with the world the way it is.
Difficult to predict I know, but as some point I would think migration could be radically different from now.

Yea. But Campbells has an itch with this one.

Oil hit $108 barrel today, so that should eventually sort out the problem :thumbup:

Not to labour this one, but you did try to dismiss Motua as just an annual event.

For one thing, until very recently apprenticeships had all but disappeared from the NZ landscape.
