  1. A fair description of what I'm seeing from family and friends. And I guess we've also bought a bit to make our home more comfortable since we've been at home for most of 2020. I've also noticed houses around my area of Melbourne commuterville are going SSTC in less than 2 weeks for ridiculously high prices. There was a time when we were too far out, now we're apparently just the right distance for the WFH/WFO balance 🙄 https://www.news.com.au/finance/economy/australian-economy/australias-absurd-reaction-to-covid-crisis-and-recession/news-story/d3372c247bc9ee3f080b8c5f9230e2b7
  2. I'm pretty sure she hasn't just been sitting around drinking Costa coffee. Just as you don't just go to work to be social and not deal with the boring relentless [email protected] of kid-life. I've done both, and I'd prefer to work. But this is you feeling hard done by and she's probably on MN telling everyone what a knob you are, so swings and roundabouts I guess 🤷
  3. I took a VR in the UK from a global company 2 years ago. Returned to Aus and took contract roles until I could find a company I liked. The work landscape is very different in Aus, and something that took time for me to adjust to. I've done ok this year, lost one contact (that was getting boring), took another one at my highest rate so far (government 🙄), and have just started in a perm part time role (also government as that seems the safest) as I'm going to do some further study. My BIL was furloughed for a few months but back working now. Apart from that I know no one in Melbourne who has last their job. But it's very early days IMO for the economic fallout.
  4. I think it will be you Brits looking for refuge out of that asylum called the UK 😂
  5. Oh I voted based on how I think you all are on here, not my actual details as I couldn't see the thread until I voted. I'm on both sites and to be honest, I rarely post here because this is clearly a site for the lads. You think MNetters don't like men? I'd say HPC don't respect women. As your thread so clearly shows 🙄
  6. This is about people realising that they could actually be stuck in the UK which would scare the [email protected] out of you. We sold and left the UK July 18. We lived in an area of London that had high eastern European immigrants. When I spoke to my EE friends about going home, most wanted to but their partners didn't. Most were renting. Interestingly, FB isn't telling me they're exiting just yet. But I think after the upcoming pandemic economic depression, the yellow brick road ideology London has always seemed to immigrants, will be smashed.
  7. Well that says a lot about you doesn't it. I'll just re-share this <<Single mothers are a failure because very few of them are able to raise kids on their own, no matter how much money you give them. This is why no society before the modern West has ever tried it; at least, not for long, because it sends the society on a fast-track to collapse. Kids need someone to teach them how to live, and fathers will do that, while mothers mostly won't. So the boys commit petty crimes, the mother supports them, and they go on to commit more and worse crimes because they don't get punished. The girls have no-one to tell them not to spread their legs for the first 'bad boy' who comes along, and soon they're knocked-up and a single mother themselves.>> It's the biggest load of mysoginist [email protected] I've read on here, and over the years there's been plenty of competition. I can't do enough eye rolls at the total boys club this site it. I came here 8 years ago after I'd just bought in London and panicked. Not that I had to it turns out but who knew back then. I stayed because some of the threads were interesting and I agreed with the general sentiment. But it's probably time I archieved this site. I sold my London house for a 80% profit last summer and now live mortgage free in Aus. Good times. And as I don't actively want to go back to the UK and BS like this post aren't called out, I'm done.
  8. Ffs. What have I just read. Yep, definitely a reason you'll need a sex bot and it's not because it's your choice ? They'll evolve too and end up leaving twatters. Fingers crossed.
  9. Agree. I moved to the UK with a backpack which was fine, and headed home a few good years later with a large move cube. We did get rid of a lot of stuff before shipping and I'm pretty brutal with regular clear outs. We said we needed a good tv, internet, laptop and cheaper housing in Aus and surprisingly we've ticked all the boxes. Unlike most houses in Aus we haven't bought a McMansion so hoping to keep the crap to a minimum for our next move.
  10. Also agree. It makes no sense for us to blame the EU for our idiocy but there you go. I know that's not what you actually meant but unless you'd like to elboraote on why *you* felt it didn't make sense I can only assume you struggle to read?
  11. Agreed. Brexit is utter madness, voted for by the majority in the UK but somehow it's the EUs fault. The world is judging the UK, and it's not complimentary.
  12. Of course the UK leaving the EU changes everything for the EMA. Will be interested to see the outcome of this.
  13. They paid £500k for a one-bedder *not* in London? I don't think you can even label that stupidity....
