Hello to Everyone !!!
I am a happily married 43 year old father of three kids who, along with my wife, have grown totally disillusioned with "Once Great Britain". My office is close to the local police station / Magistrates courts and I regularly walk past the Burberry Cap wearing Chavs waiting to appear in court and get their meaningless ASBO so they can carry on sticking two fingers up to society. The thought of my eldest daughter ( now 10 ) growing up and ultimately, when older, going out on the night in this town with it's never ending violence frightens us to death. We have no close family in the UK to hold us back. To that end, we are looking at emigrating to Oz probably to the Sunshine Coast around Maroochydore. I want to be fairly near to Brisbane ( within an hour or thereabouts ) if possible. I am not naive enough to think that problems are not apparent on Oz too but surely by population density alone, it must be less than 25% compared to the UK ??. Can anyone out there confirm that I am thinking of the doing the right thing ?? Any info on Maroochydore or anywhere within 30 miles would be of interest. Money wise, we are OK and I am about to start the visa application process. I would be looking to enter on a business visa so I can set up or invest in a business over there - Thanks for listening to me droning on but any thoughts on the above are more than welcome and much appreciated !!!
