    Hi Everyone, First time posting on this forum, just thought I’d give a brief introduction of myself. I moved to Australia when I was young, been an Australian citizen for 14 years now but will always miss home, as we all do. Moved to Brisbane originally and then in 2006 moved to Darwin. If you have any specific questions about anything related to living in working in Darwin please ask! I moved back to Brisbane in 2014 and have missed Darwin ever since. Strongly considering making the move back up north in the New Year. Thanks for reading!

    This is interesting to watch now and a reminder that the scientists are not always right and probably change their minds every few decades or so.

    These interviewers like to think they are the star sometimes and want to make it all about them. Who cares what he wants ?

    We try to play the game! We bring smallish amounts almost day by day at the moment. That way, if the rate goes down tomorrow we feel we have won, and if it goes up we bring a bit more!! Best rate for ages.

    I have no idea what Mundine is up to these day. He's netted roughly $30 million from his boxing career, amassing a huge property portfolio in the process. He's well known for his generosity and helps his people (indigenous Australians).

    So risible that an unsubstantiated account is made into a joke. Pure comedy gold. The factknown to us are: RA - settled undisclosed amount, $8M figure is a pure unsubstantiated fantasy. Folau - Not getting his day to crusade in court, and get damages of $14M he wanted

    We just have. It’s equal opportunity scrutiny for all the wingnutts, not just the Muslim ones. Christians too - the ones who go on about bush fires being god’s wrath for not being prejudiced against gays.. In other news, in the UK the Muslim lobby group in Birmingham lost their abhorrent battle to ban teaching about same sex relationships in schools. This extended to turning up to the school/s mob handed, chanting and abusing the kids and teachers under the guise of ‘peaceful protest’ Glad to see the UK Govt and law hasn’t lost it’s balls when calling these homoohobe cretins out, and to account.

    If calling out gobshites like Mundine and Folau for their despicable views and behaviour is hate filled prejudice, somebody better give that memo to the PM - ScoMo. He clearly didn’t get it when he effectively told Folau to leave it out - the bushfires debacle. Never thought it was possible, but there you have it, I’m in agreement with the PM- prejudiced and hate filled, we stand up to reprehensible actions and words. Nevermind, whilst that camaraderie may be short lived, and standing up against privileged fools may be unfashionable in Australia we’ll carry on calling them and their behaviour out.

    I'm sure you can black up, go around bare foot carrying a spear and living in a humpy if you really need to maintain the cultural identity parley. Me, I dress up in Saxon gear and build a roundhouse in the back yard. Things were great here till those bloody normans immigrated.

    You do need to check the bottom line. I am registered with a few companies and often the one that charges a fee gets me more dollars in the end. Banks are usually not the best option and don’t let you lock in a rate. It can make a huge difference, even a modest rate increase can get you thousands more dollars on larger transfers.

    Even for a pom bathing only once every 6 weeks doesn't ring true to me. He must really stink by now.

    Don't worry, I applied on 15/8/19 and still nothing. There is no official info how they queue applications but in general it is somehow by date with additional criteria such as: - is job position really needed? (for example you can see lot of IT positions finalized pretty quick) - is sponsor accredited? - how big the company is? I am of course just guessing but I am pretty sure there are some internal rules for this. There are people who get it in 10 days and people who get it in a year... without knowing their rules it might seem random

    He is simply a cult leader with absolutely nothing of value to say, sadly. There have been cults before and there will be cults in the future. Most only wind up harming a relatively small number of people. This particular cult has a wider reach so has the potential for greater harm. I keep hoping Trump fails in doing real lasting harm and becomes just a comedic footnote in hostory. A substantial subset of the population are prone to falling for cults and America has a larger proportion of such people than other countries.

    We were recently chatting to some Americans who absolutely love Trump. They weren't dumbbums, either. He appeals to that masculine, trample all over the opposition and win type i.e. average businessmen!They think he is the best thing since sliced bread. On the other hand, we were also recently speaking with an American obstetrician who loathes him and holds him responsible for the death of many Americans who cannot afford proper health care. Guess it depends where you are at.

    I have one in my kitchen utensil draw. I thought every household did. If you must get me something though, I wouldn't mind Donald Jr's new book.

    Yep, he's doing well, he's just given the Eastern flank of Europe to his mate Putin, given him a stranglehold on the middle east, destroyed the confidence of eastern europe in resisting Russian expansion, I wonder how much he owes in Russia.
