The Pom Queen posted a topic in Chewing the fatHow can people be so cruel, RIP little boy :hug: A 33-year-old man has been charged with murder after allegedly killing his three-year-old son by locking him in a washing machine and turning it on. Christophe Champenois, from Meaux, near Paris, allegedly stripped Bastien naked and shut him in the machine to punish him for a prank at nursery school - throwing a classmate's drawing down a toilet. He is then said to have run the cold cycle wash for a few minutes at their house, in the village of Germigny-l'Eveque. Bastien's five-year-old sister, Maud, told Alice's husband that it was not the first time the boy's father had put him in the washing machine as punishment. Neighbours told the newspaper that the boy had been repeatedly abused - by being locked up for hours in a cupboard and also by being left on a window sill for hours wrapped in a blanket.
All the TV programmes (most recently, the 'A Place in The sun', down under specials), national press and the internet sites suggest that there is, however, closer inspection, such as reading these forums, looking at genuine agency sites in Oz, and even the likes of Gumtree would suggest differently. We Brits are led to believe that we can swan off to Australia for a 'better way of life', where the sunshine hours are are only matched by the abundance of work, but I suspect this is not actually the case. Interesting to read right here, about the man and his family scarpering back off to Blighty after just five months having been unable to find any employment. My wife is a qualified accountant here, seemingly a '60-pointer' on the government skills shortage list, but we've looked in vain for hours for suitable positions? Would anyone care to shed any light on this matter? Thanks, Martin & Amy, Surrey, England (cold and wet...)
