    Eurovision Debacle

    I'm going to sound like an anorak here, nothing new there then, BUT. What is the bloody point of the Eurovision song contest, it is MEANT to be a contest to judge the best song on that particular evening. It is MEANT to be a 'spectacle' where the countries come together and all in all a pleasant evening is spent laughing, grinning, smirking at each countries entry, so my question is this: WHAT THE BLOODY HELL DID WE DO TO UPSET OUR EUROPEAN COUNTERPARTS SO MUCH THAT WE CAME IN LAST PLACE? If there was ever a time to pull out of Europe this is it.:wink: I didn't think our song was that bad, I only watched it on and off:embarrassed:, but in all honesty I cannot see why we came LAST. And his isn't just a recent thing, we have for years been in the bottom half of the judging, even, IMO it was obvious that we had a reasonable song and far better than some of the other entries. Have Europe forgotten about the second world war. Do they view us Brits as arrogant, insular, superior. I have no idea, but on the back of lasts night debacle I reckon we should tell Europe where to shove it and pull out immediately:shocked:. The whole bloody contest is just to political now, where the baltic nations all vote for each other. And neighbours in a country sense just pat each other on the back and bugger the actual content. Europe ONLY exists because certain members of our country/Australia fought and died so that certain freedoms and privileges remain. Lets face it, if it hadn't been for many millions of serviceman sacrificing their lives a lot of countries in Europe would now be speaking with a German accent, and believing that they are the superior race. Short memories some people. I know this is thread is a little tongue in cheek, but seriously, as far as I am concerned bloody Europe can go and shove the sun where it doesn't shine. Cheers Tony
  2. Hi guys, I've been a bit of a "lurker" of this site but this is my first post here and I’m sorry to start things off with a question. To cut a long story short I’m currently in Adelaide on a working holiday visa. My Fiancee is Australian and I’m due to be flying back to the UK to apply for the prospective marriage (sub class300) visa – AKA the “Fiancé/Fiancée Visa”. As many of you know this is processed offshore and I’ll be flying back to London next Tuesday to get things processed. In an effort to speed things up we have been attempting to “front load” things as much as possible. (To which this forum has been really helpful) However – I do have a question about the medical. About a month ago I had my medical done HSA here in Adelaide. Before seeing them I had emailed the London immigration office about the most efficient way to process things. London told me that HSA were to send the results to the Sydney processing centre – where London could then see them online. HOWEVER. Once my medical was complete - HSA said this was wrong. They gave me my results in a sealed envelope and told me to take this with me to London. They could not send them to Sydney as I don’t yet have a transaction number (technically my application doesn’t start till my paperwork reaches London) Being the doubting type I immediately rang the immigration hotline to check HSA’s answer. The guy on the phone said HSA were correct. Still remaining unconvinced I went to the immigration office in Adelaide to check this out. They again confirmed that I could take the results to London. Great. HOWEVER (again) Just to triple check. I emailed London again this week to check out if this was correct. Guess what – they said this was WRONG and HSA have to send the results to Sydney!!!! I should not have the results AT ALL. I’m now inclined to “believe” London – as it will be them who process’s the application. However my concern remains – how the hell to I get them to Sydney with either. Them getting lost in the office An administrator going “oh he doesn’t have an application yet – these forms are invalid, etc, etc” ANY help or advice people could offer would be great!! (I’m resisting the urge to go on a big rant about people telling you different things. But I won’t. Yet)
