  1. Yep, Yagan square is crap. They've done a better job with the waterside part of Perth though. No need to go near Yagan Square if you don't want.
  2. Optus stadium, where the Eagles and freo play is magnificent. I think you are absolutely wrong about touring bands not coming to Perth. I've seen loads since we've been here, we have an excellent entertainment centre to see the big bands in too. As well as a lot of outdoor concerts and a very good blues club. Boat racing is massive here with lots of rowing events on the river. UWA has boats galore. Not massively into that scene myself but I know it exists. We can see finals on TV , like most people do, Eagles have won it a few times haven't they. Horses you can keep, zero interest. My son has been to the very acceptable Perth cup though and thought it was fine. I'm more into surf ski paddling, surf club stuff, biking, triathlon, adventure racing, swimming so for me where we live is ideal.
  3. My eldests first job was at the great escape. He worked there for a few years, starting when he was at school. Had some great kids parties there for the youngest. A lot of my eldests friends worked there too, they were all in surf clubs and had their bronze medallion and lifesaving training. They had great fun, as well as getting paid.
  4. You wouldn't have to fight for parking at Hillaries, car parks massive and free. Me and the wife have biked down a few times and had a few drinks. Bit dodgy on the bikepath coming back home though, specially with no lights.
  5. The Breakwater is good, has a happy hour every night, $6 guiness, went with some friends on a night out to Hillaries a few weeks back. Started in the little Irish bar and ended up at the Breakwater. It was packed and a real party atmosphere. Got a table on the deck outside, lovely evening.
  6. Major problem with Joondalup is it's full of people from the UK at night, who like the same things they did in the UK, football, getting pissed and causing trouble. My eldest who's thirty now went there in his 20's for a change a couple of times. He couldn't understand the vibe. He said it's full of poms wanting a fight, mostly about football.
  7. Perth has all that and an aquarium and a zoo. Probably been to the zoo and aquarium twicw with the kids in 30 years. Too many other things to do.
  8. Do you feel the same about places you visit in the UK? If not why not? For the life of me I can't think of any place as nice as Hillary's within driving distance of Manchester.

    According to your theory governments should just spend spend spend all the time.

    Reading the paper this weekend all the economists and bankers are worried about debt and how and when it's going to be paid back. Tax hikes looks like the most popular option.

    Why is everyone making a big deal about debt then?

    They interviewed an Indian bloke from Bolton or Burnley, couldn't speak a word of English but he reckons people in the area are choosing not to bother with masks now and he reckons Eid will have them going out visiting.

    It's only a name Parley, they keep him well away from any decision making after him and Tesla had to pay $20mil each, after he tweeted about taking the company private.
