They will only waive condition 8101 if you demonstrate that you have "a compelling need to work" which is the case "if and only if [you are] in financial hardship".

Yes paul i am realising that now but we will run out of savings very quickly-our daughter had a car accident in oz and is now a paraplegic in a wheelchair-she has had a year out of work (in rehab) has a mortgauge to pay-lives on her own and we have literally dropped everything to come-packed our jobs in and we need to help her and ourselves get by-she works part time from home and cannot work any longer because of her injuries we need to contribute with bills and everyday living and we are finding out oz is very expensive.We’ve all had a year from hell and its getting no easier.

How awful for you.  It's a tough situation but is there any way you could all return to the UK?    It's not a "backlog", it's a quota system which is deliberately applied to all kinds of family visas to limit their number. Immigration has no intention of "clearing the backlog", in fact they don't even bother to fill the quota some years.   So for all you know it could end up being longer than 5 years. 

Essentially, if migrants decide they need to have their family living with them, Australia would rather they go back to their own country to be with their family, not bring their family here.  We can debate the rights and wrongs of that, but there's really no point, it's just the way it is.
