    Secret Harbour

    Get a holiday rental for as long as possible, make it your business to drive around suburbs as much as you can. Guaranteed you'll end up choosing somewhere different than your original plan. No IT work SOR, only the CBD. Not that much IT work in Perth full stop. We lived NOR but found ourselves heading SOR a lot of the time, more to do down there, NOR doesn't have much. Also, SOR is a better platform for travelling to the SW of WA if that's something you're interested in.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    The EU hasn't done Britain any favours? Try living in Liverpool, the Liverpool that the Tories tried to run into the ground but which has now been rebuilt as an absolutely world class city on the back of European money. Money that the Tories would have, and will do post-Brexit, hand to their Etonian mates living in the South East. Reading the Mail Online from 13,000 miles away is not doing you any favours, you haven't a clue.

    Not only did it work then, it still does. Despite being discredited. Incredible. Still, at least there's a recession on the way to take our minds off things.

    U.S. shootings.

    So commonplace, hardly warrants a mention. What a basket case of a country. 29 people murdered this weekend, scores injured, carry on as you were. The U.S. really does need to get to grips with it's white male christian fundamental lunatics. Oh sorry, forgot, they run the place. I suppose when you have a President with a 'send the buggers back' policy then I guess there'll always be a friendly maniac to lend a hand. Idiots.
  5. I think UK winters are worse. That said, I agree about the houses, they're useless for keeping warm. We had reverse cycle heating and that was awful as well. We lived in a rental once where we had to go to bed at 7pm every night and watch telly under the covers, it was crap.

    The (all new) Brexit Thread

    There are some very sinister goings on in British politics right now, I wonder who and how many people are going to be pulling Boris's strings when he gets the top job. He's undoubtedly doing shady deals. As ever, it will be ordinary people who suffer. The types who he doesn't even have to bother standing up for, if last night's debate is anything to go by.

    Woman's World Cup Football

    I'm not arguing over those facts. Just starting that, because of them, the women's WC has been a much higher profile event in this country.

    Woman's World Cup Football

    11.7m viewers on the Beeb. Not bad, about 25 times more than the men's cricket is getting. Interesting.

    Well played England. Good side the US.
  10. There's probably a load of factors affecting the pub trade, obvs including cost, kids not going for it, smoking etc. The atmos in most pubs is still great although, as a near 50 yr old, I have to say I reckon once my generation is gone, demand might mean there are only 1 or 2 pubs per town. There aren't as many young uns in pubs as there used to be IMO.

    Personally, I would have another referendum. But I don't think there will be. Boris will win the leadership vote, beg the EU to start re-negotiating again then extend the October deadline. I'm sure the end deal won't be a million miles from Mrs May's.

    Great performance, bring on the semi final.

    There isn't going to be a no-deal under any circumstance. Boris knows this but is keeping the lunatics hanging on for the sake of votes. More fool them.

    Nearly 7M on the Beeb for England v Cameroon. Enjoyed it myself.

    Cricket World Cup 2019

    Looking at the table now, and run rates etc. reckon England need 1 more win to scrape in.
