  1. http://www.london24.com/news/tv_chef_jamie_oliver_brings_jobs_boost_to_stratford_1_885239 Love this bloke from his brilliant campaign to get school meals from something that was a choice of just crap to something resembling a decent healthy meal. Oliver also created the Fifteen Foundation which every year takes fifteen young adults who have a disadvantaged background, criminal record or history of drug abuse, are trained in the restaurant business. A bloke who had nothing but has worked himself up through sheer hard work to become the man he is today.:notworthy:
  2. Hi George These explanatory notes would be amusing if they weren't so terrible. Uncertainty about what skills would be on the new SOL? There is none. Everybody knows the main content of the list as it has been draft published, and that it's smaller than the existing one and might yet add or subtract a few occupations. But for the bulk of cases who already know that the new shorter list is unlikely to include their occupation or know they will nnever be off it - hairdressers and cooks off; nurses doctorsand engineers on - what's there to be uncertain about? Likewise, preventing applications from those who may not be in such shortage - everybody again knows that the new SOL is the cut down starting point and the researach system to add new occupations has not been established yet. And with the State lists not being ready yet - again backed by non-existant research systems - then who can accurately say at this point in time exactly which occupations are or are not in demand? Therefore, the people who are on the existing SOL who will in all likelihood get back on to it once their profession becomes more organised at lobbying are in the meantime being shut out deliberately, the only reason for this is DIAC hold more applications than they can process. This is just using any excuse to cut down the inflow of applications, no matter how they dress it up. I wish for once the Minister and his spin doctors would just be direct and honest about things. This misdirection only harms the confidence of the market whereas plain speaking does not hurt it to the same degree.
  3. Hi All DIAC and the MIA (Migration Institute of Australia) are running a serioies of live roadshows in the main capital cities in Oz. The idea of the roadshows is to give DIAC a chance to speak with Registered Migration Agents about the recent and proposed changes to the skilled migration program. George Lombard went to the first of such roadshows and reported on it in the thread below: http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migration-issues/78424-thread-agents-only-re-new-gsm-changes-4.html I want to keep the above thread clear so that only the Agents and those most closely involved with them put posts on the Agents only thread, please. Jamie Smith of the MIA went to the roadshow in Melbourne today. His thoughts are below: This thread is so that PiO's members can discuss what Jamie has discovered. Jamie is free to join this thread if he wishes, as are any and all of the agents who help out with Poms in Oz. Very many thanks for your description of the meeting, Jamie. Cheers Gill

  5. Hi everybody, I know it's been a while, so I thought I'd let you know what happened to me and Kerrie.. Basically me and my now x partner Kerrie emergrated to the Sun Coast (Maroochydore/Alex) at the end of July.. To be honest, Kerrie had serious cold feet a week or so before we were due to leave (and 4 days before my bros wedding)..anyway, she agreed to just go for an initial 2 weeks and see how we go.. Anyway, to cut a long story short she was struggling to cope from day1 and after a few weeks started to drop hints re going back for a hol/homesickness etc, which at the time I didn't take too seriously as I thought this natural considering what we had done-we wern't getting on too well also, which I put down to stress..In the meantime we got jobs, I bought a car and she agreed to sign a 3 month lease for a 2 bed rental in Parker St Maroochydore for about £65 a week or $150..2 mins from the beach. I came home from work on the Friday of the 7th week to find all her gear gone and a 10 page letter on the table..I returned to the UK only a few days after her, we have split up and gone our seperate ways-we were together 6 years and engaged for 3 of them.. So I have now been back since the end of September and things haven't got any better..have lost both our dogs within 3 weeks and was told only yesterday I'm being made redundant-you couldn't make it up! I have been considering coming back-my gear is in storage there and I left my car with friends (Thankyou Sue & Craig) so feel I have nothing to lose now-although I realise how difficult and potentially lonely it could be on my own as it is different to the UK in terms of meeting new partners etc due to the family atmosphere and lack of night life etc (apart from Mooloolaba)and the fact that everything is so spread out.. I liked the Sun Coast- paradise, but in reflection feel it is maybe abit quiet and more for families..and am still concerned by the lack of permanent full-time work (known as the "casual coast") so am considering if I do come back to go South of Brisbane where there is more industry and hopefully a better chance of meeting a nice lady! Any thoughts/suggestions? I've just turned 35 and am very single.. :sad: Jamie

  8. so while we jump through hoops, pay lots of money and have a few sleepless nights and nail biting moments of frustration. the government has its own way of sending people to Australia free of charge and buys them a house... i received this email today dont know if any of you have read it yet but heres it broken down please DONT read this if your sensitive. Remember February 1993 when a young 3 year old boy was taken from Liverpool UK by 2 ten year old boys? Jamie Bulger walked away from his mother for only a second when Jon Venables took his hand and led him out of the Mall with his friend Robert Thompson. they took Jamie on a walk of over 2 and half miles. Along the way stopping every now and then to torture the poor little boy who was crying constantly for his mother. Finally they stopped at a railway track where they brutally kicked him, threw stones at him, rubbed paint in his eyes and pushed batteries up his anus. It was actually a lot worse than this, what these boys did was so horrendous that Jamies mother was forbidden to view his little body. They left his beaten body across the track to try and hide the mess they created when they hoped a train would run over him. hence making it look like an accident. This week Lady Justice Butler-Slosshas AWARDED the two boys anonymity for the rest of there lives when they leave custody with new identities. They will also leave early this year only serving half the sentance. They are being relocated to AUSTRALIA for the rest of there lives (didnt think it was still a convict settlement) (not my words) They disgustingly took away the life of a baby and the family that suffered and in return they get a new life in the sun. i feel strongly about this after the wifes disabled cousin was murdered at a local shopping centre and the killers received only 200 hours community service. that was when we decided to apply for Australia. Ironically we are expecting a rejection in the next few weeks because of a criminal conviction i have from younger days. a group of men threw bottles across the dancefloor of a niteclub and one hit my younger brother in the face, blood spurting from his eyes a friend took him aside and gave first aid. i saw Red and punched one of the group who i beleived threw the bottle. when the police arrived i was arrested and charged. but id do it again in the blink of an eye and id expect my sons to look after each other the same way anyway sorry if this post is disturbing. but it just goes to show what a load of boll*cks it all is
