    Are we mad... lol

    She is thirty I guess, but that's still a bit off.
  2. I remember my little brother swallowing a five cents piece, and my mum fishing it out of his nappy with relish, calling it the sixpence in the Christmas pudding. I'm not sure how we survived if I'm honest.

    Citizenship by descent

    I think people are getting very confused here. You are an Australian citizen, or you are not. There is no second class 'australian citizen by descent'. You can claim Australian citizenship by descent. And when you do this will affect when you're children can claim. But once you claim Australian citizenship, then you are an Australian citizen. As long as you were an Australian citizen at the time of your children's birth, and you have spent two years in Australia, your children will be able to claim Australian citizenship by descent, and they will then be Australian citizens.
  4. I do love British cheese. Just had a ploughman's with a lovely piece of cheddar. Now you're probably thinking cheddar? That's nothing special. But when you get a really good cheddar, it's hard to beat.

    Relationship break up and moving back home...

    Well, if you compare numbers between the UK and USA. Spot the difference.
  6. It's been over a year since I've used actual money. I dare say they will get rid of it soon.

    I think while there are very high numbers in other parts of the world, we still need to be cautious of people outside the UK, because they could bring in vaccine busting variants. But I think people inside the UK should be able to relax a bit.

    You are probably already seeing that. All school kids test twice a week, so you would probably expect numbers to be higher. They may not all test on the same day, but my son's school recommended test days, so they might. Sunday and Wednesday, so probably reported Monday and Thursday.
  10. I really don't think PC has killed Australian sarcasm.

    Snow today in the UK. Turned out lovely though.

    We may see higher cases, but hopefully hospital numbers and deaths will continue to fall. The UK is a vaccine testing ground. None of us really know how this will work.

    Pound £ on a roll!

    That is a very good question, and the answer could be both, and also neither. Initially, if SNP wins, I would say the movement would be down, mainly because of the uncertainty. Can't say by how much, and whether it would be a temporary reaction. But an SNP majority doesn't mean they will go straight for a referendum, or that they would win it. Long term, if Scotland left, the movement could be up, especially if NI looks at following suit. England could be a lean mean Atlantic Singapore. Or not. But this would take some years to eventuate. I would suggest that people just be aware for now, knowing that there may be volatility, and make plans accordingly.

    Not good enough for me. I want a sovereign country without someone else's flag in the corner.

    I think it's called sovereignty. Some people seem to think it to be important.
