Travellers.

 Not a problem and not tolerated in one country.

Social Media

News sites and News journalists in one country are now paid for their content by Facebook and Google. Google immediately came on board but Facebook crashed in less than a week, and subsequently agreed to pay.

China

One country would like to have a trade deal with China and the other country wishes it never went down that road.

Green. It's very brown and dusty where we are in summer!

That's the good thing about Aus. You can choose just about any climate without moving country. If you don't like brown and dusty, there's plenty of Aus that is green and lush.

Well, you could have lived in say, a terrace house in Surry Hills, Sydney, with, yes a tin roof (but not not the Nissen hut/ramshackle hen coop one associates the word in the UK) ornate ironwork and balconies unlike anything I've ever seen in the UK.

Or lived on a beach as I am doing now, looking up briefly from my keyboard to watch the waves pound on the sand.

What made you pick the place you describe? Needs must?  Have you moved back to live in a tower block in a "scheme?" 
 

Naw....we bought a modern country home with land on it, we have animals, growing our own food, next are chickens, pigs some goats and a few sheep quad bike and trailer once fully retired. Want to get into cheese making. We’re up on a hill overlooking a beautiful village gently rolling landscape of green fields hills and a pineforest. Not a tower block in sight.

I've always wanted to make cheese.

Space. 

For sure. Even the size of the roads. Room to breathe. Agree it's location dependent to a degree but love the space in WA.

There's a big carp fishing movement in Australia too. Poms and South Africans.

Good, the more they destroy the better.  Illegal to catch and return in Lake Burley Griffin.

There is no comparison to barramundi,  yellowbelly, or the murray cod, which are premium sportfish. 
I have seen a quality river, the NSW Barwon River deteriorate from a navigable waterway to a series of mud holes due to the crap.

Cheers, Bobj.

Yeah but you have to destroy them. They can't be returned to the water.

Apparently so. That's why it's an underground thing.

What do you mean by an underground thing?

Her in QLD they have competitions etc for who can catch the most as they want them out of the waterways.

If you don't go after what you want, you'll never have it. If you don't ask, the answer is always no. If you don't step forward, you're always in the same place...

If you get a chance,take it, If it changes your life,let it. Nobody said it would be easy they just said it would be worth it...

People catch them and return them for sport..They don't believe they are harmful. They don't advertise it though as they know it's frowned upon. 

"Holy carp! Perth's urban fishers take to the drains" https://amp.watoday.com.au/national/western-australia/holy-carp-perths-urban-fishers-take-to-the-drains-20141126-11ulqd.html

I believe the Eastern species are thought to  cause more problems.
