    Daily Telegraph (UK) Blog - moving home

    Just wanted to let fellow pomsinozzers know that you can follow my 'moving back to blighty' diary here: Robert Pickles - Telegraph I hope you enjoy it and please feel free to post replies.
  2. I'm sure I did and it was packed with Poms (and homesick Aussies?)
  3. On page 4 of yesterday's Tele a gushing article about the rich and famous who live in Mosman and their multi-millionnaire homes and lifestyles. (This was background to the terror attack in Mosman.) On page 7 an article about fighting between rival gangs of Pacific Islanders & African youths in Sydney's toughest neighbourhoods. All we need now is an indignant letter about how we expect this to happen in Los Angeles or London but not in sleepy? Sydney?

  6. Clearly I have way to much time to muse on the important philosophies in life..... :idea: INAFFECTIVE DAILY AFFIRMATIONS..... For those people who believe in a daily spiritual discipline... As I let go of my feelings of guilt, I can get in touch with my Inner Sociopath...... I really have found this one to be most affective I have the power to channel my imagination into ever-soaring levels of suspicion and paranoia. I assume full responsibility for my actions, except the ones that are someone else's fault. I no longer need to punish, deceive or compromise myself. Unless, of course, I want to stay employed. In some cultures what I do would be considered normal. Having control over myself is nearly as good as having control over others. My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of good judgment. I honor my personality flaws, for without them I would have no personality at all. Joan of Arc heard voices too. I call out to my higher power to show me the error of my ways, give me the guidance so I do not repeat my mistakes, and the right words so that I can talk my way out of a ticket. I am grateful that I am not as judgmental as all those censorious, self-righteous people around me. I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper and complain. As I learn the innermost secrets of the people around me, they reward me in many ways to keep me quiet. When someone hurts me, forgiveness is cheaper than a lawsuit. But not nearly as gratifying. The first step is to say nice things about myself. The second, to do nice things for myself. The third, to find someone to buy me nice things. As I learn to trust the universe, I no longer need to carry a gun. All of me is beautiful and valuable, even the ugly, stupid, and disgusting parts. I am at one with my duality. Now lets all be mindful & post a few more :wubclub:

  8. I just saw a similar entitled thread and thought what a great idea! Lets have a thread where us in Australia can post a daily photo (one we have taken ourselves) to show all the prospective visa applicants exactly what its all about!! A good way to share our pics too... I'll go first...http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=1868&stc=1&d=1277806503 It's the city of Perth as viewed from the Esplanade by the Swan River

    Australia Daily Photo

    As someone who occasionally attempts to blog, I often wonder if people click on the link in my signature (hint hint). Whenever I see that another forum member has posted a link in their signature, I make a habit of checking it out. In the case of Australia Daily Photo it's a real winner and definitely worth a daily visit! Go on click it, they deserve your attention for the effort that has been put in. :jiggly:
  10. 'Four million expats want to come home as savings and income plunge along with the pound'. Here's the extract: Almost 4million Brits living abroad are planning a mass return to home shores after seeing their savings and income stripped by the plunging values of the pound and their property. The dramatic slump has slashed their income by a third and has turned Brits into the paupers of Europe. Fears over job security and falling property prices are also giving expats second thoughts, according to research from foreign exchange specialist Moneycorp. Some 845,000 Brits living in Spain and France have suffered an 8 per cent drop in house prices in the year to August 2009 alone. This wiped €30,000 off the average property on the Costa del Sol. Sterling has slumped from over €1.50 to £1 in January 2007 to close to parity, taking a terrible toll on the estimated 5.5million British expats, and particularly the 1.1million pensioners living abroad. Moneycorp research shows that 70 per cent of all expats are now considering returning to the UK. A retired couple living in Spain, for example, both drawing a full state pension of £95.25 per week, will have seen their combined monthly income - on their pension alone - drop by €396 over three years, from €1,263 to €867. The warning signs that hundreds of thousands of Brits may be ready to return to the UK started when the credit crunch began in 2008. That year, the number of expats returning home jumped by a fifth on the previous 12 months. The number of British homeowners downsizing or selling up and sending money back to the UK doubled last year, foreign currency specialist HiFX reports. It has seen an 180 per cent increase in the number of euro to sterling transactions and an 11 per cent increase in the number of U.S. dollar to sterling transactions in the past six months, compared to last year. More people over 65 than any other age group are repatriating. Mark Bodega from HiFX says: 'The pound's fall to historic lows in recent months has meant the cost of living or running a holiday home on the continent has risen to unaffordable levels for many people.' A weak property market is also proving to be a nightmare for many of the estimated 1.5million Brits who own homes abroad. Many are being forced to sell their property at a loss, particularly in countries like Spain. The weak pound has proved a blessing for those who receive an income in euros, for example from renting a property. Sterling's slump means they will get far more pounds for their euros. Brennon Nicholas, managing director at estate agency Cluttons Spain says: 'We have seen an increase in the number of people coming to us who are struggling because their pensions and savings do not stretch as far as they used to. They're selling up because of the favourable exchange rate but the market is extremely tough and there is a lack of buyers.' Pensioners abroad have arguably been hit the hardest as they rely most heavily on their savings and pensions built up in the UK. They've been hit by a declining pound and falling interest rates. One in five expats claims a sterling pension, with more than a quarter of Brits living in Spain (28 per cent) and a third of British expats in Germany relying on this as their core source of income, according to Moneycorp. More than half a million pensioners living in Commonwealth countries such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand suffer a further blow because their state pensions don't rise each year in line with inflation. Only those living in the European Economic Area and countries with reciprocal agreements in place with the UK, such as the U.S. and Jamaica, are protected against inflation. Yesterday, these pensioners lost their fight in the European Court of Human Rights to prove this pension freeze violates anti-discrimination rules. Tim Finch, head of migration at think tank the Institute for Public Policy Research says: 'The weakness of the pound will mean more people will lose jobs and find it harder to live overseas and come home. This is likely to be a growing trend over the next few years. 'Generally, the big wave of lifestyle emigration where people got their place in the sun for a better life was a reflection of the boom years when you had high house prices and decent pensions.'

    Daily Mail letters page.

    There is a letter in the Daily Mail,in todays issue which most of us could have written, by John Gittins of Chester, complaining about the way he and his wife have been treated by Diac. Hopefully the more publicity we get maybe the Government will take notice.
  12. Hi there, I lived in melbourne for 2 years and used to commute daily to city with a motorbike. It was the year 1999/2000 and I guess it didn't rain that much in those years. I had no problem commuting. When it rained, I used to put on the suit. Hopefully, I will be back (I'm about to lodge the visa app), but this time to Sydney. Any bikers in NSW commuting to the city for work? I would love to hear your views Does it rain a lot, I mean, is it feasible to go to work with bike everyday? It's just so convenient and efficient plus driving the bike every morning is like breakfast :wink: Cheers B1K3R
  13. Hi Help sought Please. In Tuesday's Telegraph (19th May) an article titled The great Australian giveaway says that grants of almost £450 are being given to Australian families where there is an income of less than £50.000 a year also a £475 bonus for every school-age child and that the money which is costing Australian governement £21 billion will be put into bank accounts by July. I have emailed this article to my Brother in Queensland who is on a 175 visa but what I am trying to find out is would he be eligible on that visa or is it only for Australians. It does also say that the grants are being given to the wrong people and being spent overseas, some foreigners who had lived in Oz briefly before returning home have received cheques and many Australians had spent it on holidays. The purpose was to urge people to spend it at local businesses. So far more than 6.5 million payments have been made. If anybody could advice I would be grateful Thanks sandy

    It geek's daily fix

  15. So is there something really wrong with NZ (ive not been there)?? !!! Monday April 21, 02:26 PM Over 100 Kiwis move to Australia daily More than 100 New Zealanders emigrated to neighbouring Australia every day in the 12 months ending March 31, official statistics show. A total of 38,738 citizens left NZ to settle in Australia, the biggest number since 2001, Statistics New Zealand said on Monday. When the number of New Zealanders returning home from Australia is taken into account, there was a net outflow of 30,219 in the year. Net immigration from all countries for the 12 months 4,678, down from 12,081 in 2006/07. Britain continued to provide the biggest number of immigrants to New Zealand, as it has done since 2005, with 6,894 in the 12 months to March, though this was down from 10,235 the previous year. India was the next biggest contributor with 4,159, up from 2,536 in 2006/07, followed by the Philippines with 3,262, up from 2,714. There were 2,500 immigrants from Fiji, 2,100 from South Africa and 1,900 from China, which had been the biggest single source of new settlers from 1996 to 2004. NZ opposition parties blamed policies of the Labour Party-led coalition government, which has been in power since 1999, for the mass emigration to Australia where wages are higher.
  16. Hi everyone, Today's Daily Express (pages 28 & 29) has a big article on mass migration into and out of the UK. They say that Leicester is going to be the first City that will have a white minority within the next 12 years and that people no longer recognise the UK as the country they once knew. Tell us something we don't know!! The UK government could learn a lot from the Aussies & the Kiwis when it comes to controlled migration. We are all prepared to 'jump through hoops' to get into Oz, so why doesn't the same apply for people coming into the UK? The debate continues.........
