    Some of those articles make my head spin. I'm fairly open-minded but WTF.

    Isis schoolgirl wants to return to UK

    What an absolute mess she has made of her young life. I feel sorry for the baby she is expecting.

    Anyone had tomove back to UK for financial reasons?

    Husband and I have never been jobless here but I can imagine it's pretty miserable to be jobless no matter where you live. What you say above is OK for a male Bob but I think Hamsterwheel is female. When work dried up for my OH in Perth we moved to Sydney - plenty of construction work going on there. When it slowed down there he went out west to quite remote towns for a few weeks then up to Qld for a couple of months then Sydney started to boom again and work was steady from then on until he retired. I did casual jobs bar work, checkout chic and vet nursing until I had children. Went back to work when the youngest started school then worked for the same company for over 20 years - started off in a very run of the mill office job but was promoted over the years. Well paid with bonuses.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    A 200 room hotel is to be built here in Devonport and a nice grassy area has been subdivided for 25 new homes. Another thing that's very common is large gardens (up to 2 acres) being subdivided and 3 or 4 small villas being built there. Nearly all the houses on our street had massive gardens in the past but now subdividing on the garden area is very common. We are on the street front and there are 4 villa type homes behind us.

    I agree the state of politics in Australia, UK and the US is pretty pathetic but I am capable of independent thinking and certainly disagree with some of the stuff both the left and the right come out with. Don't know what that makes me. I've given up on politics and politicians these days.

    You can even do a test to find out where you stand. https://www.politicalcompass.org/test

    I agree with SOME things the so called left state and SOME things the so called right also state. You know the old adage Rossmoyne ................. never talk about religion or politics. Seems to be true in most cases. All those pointless arguments. A waste of time.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    Yosser was one of the characters in 'Boys From The Black Stuff' and was set in Liverpool. Poor old Yosser. What a crappy life he had. Some of those Irish con men you mention were ripping people off over here doing the same thing a few years ago.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    MKR used to be good - haven't watched it for about 4 years now. As you say, there always has to be a controversial pair on the show. What's BBL? I haven't watched Great British Bake Off. Sounds good. I'll have to start watching more telly.
  13. I went there when I was looking for a pair of wellies. Nothing under $40 .................... for wellies!!. I got a pair in Bunnings for $15.

    How is Trump doing so far?

    Off topic again ................. but who on earth watches reality TV stuff. The wee snippets I've seen advertising the shows make me shudder. Why do people go on those type of shows. Not those cooking show so much but utter tripe like Married At First Sight etc etc.

    Where to start? Perth and Perth living.

    Darling Harbour - meh - never liked the place. There are lots of very late night eateries (some 'til the early hours of the morning) in and around the CBD ............... if you know where to look.
