    Cricket World Cup 2019

    Let's just say, I was never brought up to support England. I don't understand why it makes people so upset when people who they don't know chose to support someone else at sport

    That's good - were you brought up supporting England? What I was getting at (in the post you quoted) was that although people might have been born in a country they are sometimes heavily influenced by family heritage and who they support.

    I think it depends on people's influences and heritage growing up and where their parents were from - we shouldn't assume an affinity to somewhere purely because we were born there without knowing the fuller picture.

    Just a tongue in cheek comment as I had a soft spot for the Kiwi's - you've obviously read more into it by making my quote bold. In all honesty, people can identify with whichever nationality they want to … it really doesn't impact on my world at all.

    Well, at least a Kiwi was in the winning side

    I do always want the English Football team to do well and would love them to win a major championship

    Nothing more than personal preference and not "anyone but England" … I said I had a soft spot for the Kiwi's, even backed them for the last world cup

    Cancelling 2nd working holiday visa (417)

    What was the valid until date? wondering if you in fact still only had one visa and that whilst the start date was the day of grant valid until the end of your existing visa- plus one year.

    As my daughter say's we're British born Australians. Been a citizen for 10 years, my children have spent more than half their lives here.

    I only really got into cricket when coming to live here in Aus and started going to watch. I've developed a bit of a soft spot for the Kiwi's

    I think it's the format - would have been better having group stages and more sudden death rounds. Disappointed with the result, but Carey was a bit of a legend - he must have been in so much pain. Hoping the Kiwi's win the final.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Apologies for the temporary closure of the thread. Some posts have been removed (there isn't a prize for guessing why). If you can't remember the site rules - there is a link on the home page under guidelines.

    Transferring UK license to WA license

    Turn up to the licencing centre - it's a pretty simple process from what I remember (had to read some letters like an eye test and have photo-taken). It did take about a week (12 years ago) for the licence to come through - if you explain that you're doing a course, they may be able to give you a confirmation letter.
