      Maybe, but this still strikes me as poor deal for those of us in the northern hemisphere.

      Live in Britain. Enjoy British weather. Suffer British prices. Have a British standard of living. Get paid a British salary. Be packed in to our over-crowded island. Be subject to our rubbish infrastructure and useles spublic services. Watch your savings being diluted and half your salary being frittered by the incompetents and criminals who govern Britain. But work to make Aussies rich.

      I wish my great grandad had stolen a loaf of bread. Or more likely, I wish he'd been caught.

        Salaries in Perth are fantastic compared to the UK. But so is the cost of living.

        How do you fancy £7 a pint?

        The sunshine is amazing though. I do miss that when sat here in southern England in November.
