    Living in Queensland

    Hi folks looking for input and advice. I live in geelong but am looking to buy a second home somewhere up north to live in the winter. Probably do a six month six month split. I don’t have too many criteria as yet but the June temp needs to be around 25 C Would rather steer clear of the big towns if possible oh and needs to be no more than an hours drive from an airport with flights to tulla. Also needs to be on or very near the coast All suggestions welcome thanks

    Where to start? Perth and Perth living.

    Pretty rude of some folk to be banging on about bag searches all through the guys thread I know nothing about welding mate but sounds to me that you are looking to move for all the right reasons. Just make sure your partner is fully on board as it’s likely to be head down arse up for the first wee while

    Melbourne suburbs for young families

    Lot of supposition going on there Alan. Anyway the op should check into all of these things before deciding. Btw I live in geelong, it’s a fantastic place to live

    Anyone who thinks geelong is an hours drive from Melbourne in the morning is off their trolley.

    457 Visa Transfer

    Hi Not wanting to go into too much detail here but could someone advise on the process for transferring a 457 to another employer? My company are looking to recruit someone who is currently on a 457, less than a year into a four year visa. Do we go through the process as though we were bringing someone new into the country? Ie go through the nomination process and then if approved apply to have this persons visa transferred to us? Also while the process is ongoing would their current employer know this process was ongoing? Very important that they don’t for obvious reasons Also how would any possible transfer affect them going for pr? Thanks

    Why are some people so easily offended?

    Well if that’s what you are talking about then use a more realistic example Of course there are many examples of how PC has gone mad, however saying women who wear burkhas look like postboxes is not one of them

    Why are some people so easily offended?

    It’s a sign of the times we live in unfortunately I was brought up in a home where you were taught to be respectful for others, regardless of who they are I also lived in a tolerant and inclusive country where diversity was seen as a good thing Something which is lost on the OP

    They look nothing like post boxes mate I somehow can’t see even you trying to stick a letter in their mouth

    Why are some people so easily offended?

    Mate I’m not angry in the slightest. I’ve read many of your posts on here so I know what you stand for I personally think you are wrong but hey ho My point is that people are entitled to live their lives and follow their beliefs without ridicule. Especially from a so called public figure If you can’t get your head around that fact well like I say it says a lot about you

    I’m not offended by what you say in the least I just don’t respect your opinions

    Says a lot about you then

    Of course they weren’t racist but they were highly offensive. The man is an absolute attention seeking buffoon

    I’m not quite sure you can use life of Brian as an example. You would be as well saying that it’s ok to be racist because they did it in love thy neighbour It’s just not acceptable any more and rightly so

    Australia’s Migration Lowest in 10 Years

    I think that’s probably more to do with the easy availability of money for investors than immigration
