Well, well, well
I think our antipodean brothers,sisters, aunties, uncles and cousins should step back . . . take a deep breath . . . and look back into their recent past and ask themselves . . . .
. . . "Did we do the right thing when we voted NO about if we wanted to become a republic?"
My honest opinion? No you didn't!!!
BTW I'm over here, not over there . . . Wish I was but unfortunately I'm not!!
The reason I feel you made the wrong decision is pretty obvious really . . . You are all starting to feel the 'Pinch' from your Government (snigger . . . Sorry, Oops UK.Gov I meant to say) in the same way we have felt for the last 10 to 15 years or so . . . and then some!!
The sooner you cast aside any and all links with the 'Fatherland' that you call home . . . the better off you will be . . . believe me!!
For all those who don't believe, I would ask this question of you . . .
"If the sun shone as bright, the sea was as blue and the days were as long as where you are now . . . OVER HERE . . . would you come back?"
All those who answered 'NO' . . . Thank you for having retained what you were born with . . . Common Sense!!
All those who answered 'YES' . . . Please form an orderly queue whilst we take a DNA swab, Iris scan, finger prints, stool and urine sample, etc . . .
"What do you need those for, Sir?"
"So we can lose them for all and sundry to use them as they see fit!"
DO YA STILL WANNA COME HOME??!! IF YA DO THEN YA WON'T HAVE TO LEAVE OZ IF YA CARRY ON THE WAY YA GOING . . . DIGGERS!!
