    When to go?

    Hey mate, FYI Victoria have just announced that all incoming international flights to be diverted for the next few weeks.

    WA heading for recession

    All of the world. Need central banks to print money to avoid a 1930s style depression.

    Exemption to Travel from Australia

    If you feel that strongly about it, you can always renounce your Australian citizenship.

    Be a migration agent

    It's just analytics mate. They do it across all professions. The ATO have a huge amount of data. With AI, it is likely that a human never saw that letter, the analysis would have been done automatically and letters issued based on certain parameters. If your return is legit, you'll be fine and I doubt there will be any further action.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    To be made in Europe btw. Oh, the irony.

    CTF - what's the solution

    Definition of racism 1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race Now go back and read your posts. Here's a clue; When one says the English/Australians/Northerners/Muslims/Scots/Irish/Germans/French take your pick etc that is racist (it doesn't really matter what you say after it). Ie defining your behaviour towards an individual based on their nationality or race. If you don't like your posts being called out as racist / fascist, stop posting racist & fascist comments. If you are honestly shocked by the accusations, maybe you need to take a good look in the mirror and do some reading on the subject.

    CTF - what's the solution

    Why do you? You add 0 value to the main purpose of the site, have nothing to do with Australia and can provide no help to migrants/potential migrants. Actually, your threads and posts diminish the credibility of the site.

    CTF - what's the solution

    Hey Tony, It's far past banter. It's 2-3 posters who are the persistent offenders. Have a quick glance at the Brexit thread to see the extreme nationalism. One poster repeatedly insinuates that I & everybody Irish are all terrorists and hate all English people. That's not banter, it's hate speach.
  10. From a work point of view for your partner, Brisbane may be better than Perth but not by much. It really is Sydney or Melbourne. Her type of role does lend itself to remote working but unlikely to get that straight away. If you end up doing FIFO, she may as well be in Sydney.

    CTF - what's the solution

    You are kidding, right? Simmo is 90% of the problem (with a handful of others). Constantly starting trolling and subliminally racist threads. You have to ask the ? What is the purpose of the site? I thought it was for migrants/potential migtants to Australia Close CTF IMO. It adds 0 value to an otherwise ok site. The CTF threads actually show the site in a very bad light and diminishes any credibility the other threads have. It is dominanted by Dad's army posters who are largely based in the UK and have nothing to do with Australia. They add no value to the main threads at all and are just interested in shit stirring. I'd love to know how many migrants (with good practical knowledge about Australia) have walked away from this site, I know of a few in Perth.

    I vote Get Rid of so much which adds 0 value.

    Not odd at all if you read the news. Dominic Cummings is calling the shots. On whose behalf though? Aaron Banks & his cronies. Btw - Trump is just a puppet too.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Surely it's dawned on you by now that Boris is just a puppet or are you really that naive?

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Maybe spend a bit less time on here and go to your local library and ask for books on the rise of the third reich. Or even read Orwell's Animal Farm (& no it's a story about animals).
