 I have just read the forum rules and guidelines written by Cerberus and no mention of politics so i assume we are free to discuss.

Labor are being very sneaky and basically lying in their ads so be mindful of that...

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...

I've been hoping Minder will come to Britbox, which i subscribe too. Maybe it has been banned though if you are right and the content is too Un PC for today's delicate viewer.

A few shows i have watched lately like The Professionals and Porridge have a content advisory warning before the show runs. In Porridge's case there was a crack about 'poofters' so it assume that was the reason. Probably too much of that sort of talk in shows from that era.

Last night watched the third episode of Minder, where I'm up to at the moment. (The Smaller They Are)  From the 1979. London looked quite run down . People dressed poorly, but recall the year and London then,  to which I far preferred from the glitter and swagger of today. Any way easy to watch.

If you mean continuing to work whilst on a holiday for a regular employer in the UK then yes that is OK. Same as working from home really. You are not taking work from an Australian by doing so. 

Thanks. I have Australian citizenship so I'm not worried by the visa issues.

But it's more from a tax and social security point of view. Apparently my company don't allow it in India, because India insists you pay tax there even for short stays, but I'm not sure about Australia. 

I have managed to find a website which I will read (it's rather long). But googling it tends to concentrate more on visas than tax.


Nearly there! Don't drop the ball now guys! Vaccines are weeks away. Stay safe!

I think it should be fine, my husband certainly worked on his holidays here before we moved. Never gave it a thought as he was paid and taxed in UK. You don’t become tax resident in Aus unless you move permanently or spend over 6 months here. I’m sure if your company is aware of Indian issues they would know about Australia.

If I said the opposite:

"The Liberals are being very sneaky and basically lying in their ads so be mindful of that..."

I'm sure it would be deemed political and removed.

Kate said they were temporary changes so were not meant to still be in place after 2 years.

Don't you think the most important thing going on in Australia right now for years, should be discussed?

I live in a kit home granny flat … it stands on small legs … the earth is pushed up against it leaving a gap underneath it … ideal for the wildlife to make a home in … 

I will put wire there as well …

I meant to add there are four air vents around my home two at the back and two at the front … the python’s stomach is resting on one …

Sad to hear Dennis Waterman has died.

I like his work in The Sweeney, Minder and New Tricks.

RIP Dennis

I met him a few times as he was a friend of my ex husband.   I really liked Dennis... such a great character and an honourable chap.   Very sad to hear of his passing.

Honourable. Now there's a quaint term seemingly in short supply today. I liked Denis in the roles he played. I'm glad to hear he had virtue as well.

  My husband is watching a game of footy and every so often (too often) this awful jingle comes on.  Who the heck thought this one up?? "There's a hole in your budget dear Labour".  I'll be so glad when voting day is over and done with and I won't have to put up with the pre voting day palavar.  Do these dreadful ads really make any difference to how someone is going to vote?

Have you never heard of him  @simmo? He was a great swash buckling type cricketer.

Perhaps a bit out of the mould like warnie and not a  traditional type.

I think the level of political advertising and the non stop personal insults are a disgrace, all parties are equally at fault. What a dreadful impression of the quality of our politicians we have had to endure over the last few weeks, I doubt it will improve over the next 6 days, can’t wait for it all to end. They should be ashamed of themselves, we deserve better.
