    Why are some people so easily offended?

    I am Toots. Now you have offended me by mixing me up with another poster.

    I bring you Fraser Anning...

    Far better infrastructure for sure. When we came in 1981 the population was 15 million and life was easy. Everything was affordable - plenty of work. I look at Sydney now and compared to 1981 things are certainly not nearly as easy for new migrants e.g. fewer jobs and expensive housing.

    No you shouldn't but the people that get up my nose are the ones who are so self opinionated they start to get a bit arsey when they come up against someone with a different opinion.

    So do you think 25 million is enough of a population? Like you say, an awful of the country is practically inhabitable.
  5. Sunbeds are also to blame just as much ................ they should be banned.

    visa refused due to case officer's mistake

    OK I get it now but you did say OUR and mentioned 'we' only once so it is easy to assume you weren't talking about someone else. Somebody will be along who may give you an answer to your query.

    visa refused due to case officer's mistake

    I thought you were already living in Sydney?? Why are you asking about a visitor visa?

    In my back yard

    We had the same problem with pooping ducks until we did away with the pool. For such small critters they do an awful lot of pooping. Best they stay in ponds and creeks.

    Jetstar alert

    Thanks for the warning. I used that thing to check the correct size last time I flew to Sydney but you are correct some people just seem to get away with it and others don't.

    The weather 😁

    The further north your friends go the warmer the weather will be. Melbourne has has been a bit on the chilly side (same as Tassie) but what do your friends expect from winter weather in the lower half of Australia. At least it won't have been sleet and snow for them.

    Is Labour Finished?

    Yes I've read elsewhere that The Munich 1972 terrorists who were killed by German security forces were all buried in Sidi Munaidess Cemetery in Libya
  12. Rates of skin cancer are increasing faster than any other cancer in the UK with figures doubling every 10-20 years. More than 12,000 cases of Melanoma, the deadliest form of the disease are diagnosed every year in the UK and over 2,000 will die from the disease this year alone. Time to be careful with the use of sunbeds and when out in the sun cover up. http://www.skcin.org/skinCancerInformation/theProblemAndFacts.htm

    25 Million today - Too many ?

    Just as long as they don't all move to Tasmania! It's a place the size of Ireland with a population of just over 500,000.

    The weather 😁

    Sounds more like the Tassie weather bunbury's friends were talking about. We've had rain and wind on and off for days now and it's been on the chilly side too. However, today is just lovely. Long may it last. I also don't understand folk who assume the weather in Australia is constant sunshine and warm temps ...................... especially in the winter. Even when I plan a trip to Asia I make sure it's during the dry, cooler time of the year.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    I agree with all that but what happens when 'fancy' decorative brickwork is required or more complicated brickwork than is the norm. My OH and an older guy used to get all those jobs because they had been taught to do it properly back in the day. Quite lucrative it was too.
