Australia aims to lure many more Britons

#1
Good news! -

STOP whingeing, Poms. As the British economy falters, Australia is launching its most aggressive campaign yet to attract a new generation of immigrants from Britain.

A recruitment drive by the state government of South Australia starts tomorrow with newspaper advertisements attacking life in Britain, with slogans such as "Sod London house prices" and "Screw working in Staines, hello Adelaide".

And it closes down at 1700 Hours Friday night for the weekend.
Apart from the overload of Churches, I don't see a problem with this.

Everyone whinges about Germany being closed down on a Sunday, but I love it.

I don't remember Paderborn being closed on a Sunday. Swimming, sunbathing and talent spotting in the Lido during the day (summer only)beers in the Porticus followed by a nice sing song in Paddy Murphy's - mmmmmmmmmmmmm! :p

I had the pleasure of an extended Staff Visit to OZ ... country was very nice to look at, lovely weather, etc.

1. At an RAAF Base east of Melbourne [in wine country] I met the Brit wife of an RAAF officer. "If you like beer and barbecues, it's great. If you don't, there's nothing as up-market as Radio 2."

2. In my RAAF counter-part's house ... the men sit in the comfy chairs, and he calls for more beers from the wives standing in the kitchen.

Joking apart, 1. is tragic and 2. is gross and actually embarrassing.
Still, it takes all sorts, and there are undoubtedly many [like me] glad to escape Labour Britain.
I couldn't live in OZ, though, even though I still have mates over there.
