  4. BRISBANE is knee-deep in Pommies, who are spurning migration to the southern states in favour of a life in the Sunshine State's capital. A survey commissioned by British bank NatWest has found Australia has displaced New Zealand as the top destination choice for Brits abandoning the mother country. Brisbane has also overtaken Perth as Australia's most popular destination for migrants. One in ten Brisbane residents are British ex-pats | Courier Mail

    Taylors of Harrowgate Tea

    For those who like Taylors tea it is now available in Woolworths supermarkets @ $4.99 per 100 bags. You will see it in the box with the red stripe in the normal tea section:biggrin:

    Australia: From lucky country to land of rip-offs

    Have a look at BBC 1 Wednesday nights called Rip off Britain. Same things. I have been here over 40 years, I know things have gone up, but being on an Aussie pension we are far better of than when we were working.

    City and guilds

    Mine was accepted after I paid $500 for a check to be done to see if they were genuine, Mind you this was in Queensland! In 35 years down south never had a problem, in fact they wern't interested in C&G, only if you could do the work. The way it should be!
  14. 54 countries in the Commonwealth, and only two were interested! Strange! 30,000 new full time jobs, I don't believe it. It is a political stunt by Bligh Work it out $1.1 billion cost, 30,000 jobs @ say $1000 each per week, taking into account super, holiday pay etc. That mean the money would be spent in 9 months, and that is not counting material cost. Nope election is coming up and you can't believe or trust Bligh. I am glad it is over the other side of town to me. I would find it also difficult to see any gain to the taxpayer. Sorry just read a statement from Juliar Gillard, the cost is now $1.92 billion plus any over runs. lol As the ex Lord Mayor Jim Sooley said," The Commonwealth Games are archaic today" At least Rudi you will be busy with B7 B

    Juliar Gillard

    I meant fail to consult like Rudd failed to consult.

    Juliar Gillard

    She wan't step down, she loves the power too much, no she will be stabbed in the back, just like Rudd. That's the way the power brokers work here in Australia.

    Juliar Gillard

    Makes rash decisions, fails to consult like Rudd, and she is just an obnoxious person, who will go down in history as the most hated & incompetent PM ever. Can't wait to see her gone. About 30 of us are aready planning a party for her dismissal. Also she is a downright liar.
