We've been here for over 2.5 years now. And since moving I have continued to follow UK news, events and so on (mostly via the BBC news site and then if wanting to read or know more, opting for other news sources for more in depth reports etc). Not because I am homesick or hankering to be back there or anything close to it. Quite the opposite, I am very well settled and content here :)
I find no sign of this wavering or lessening off as time goes on and I do like following what is going on back in the UK, same as I do elsewhere in the world. I prefer to read the BBC news site over Aus news sites reporting UK news. I find most Aus news sources to be rather OTT or very biased and also hate the annoying ads that come with them I don't like reading most of the Aus news websites and stick to ABC where possible although I've been known to read news.com.au on occasion
Keeping up on goings on in the UK, I don't find it makes me homesick or missing anything about the UK or my life there in the least. I do like it gives me an understanding of what is going on, that when my family chat about stuff that is happening there I am more often than not aware of it, can discuss and ask questions about it and so on. I also don't feel any less a part of Australia or less involved here by following UK news in depth. I don't follow the news from my old local area of England. I'm not that fussed to keep up with all that, just the bigger picture stuff most of the time though I do read the occasional local news report.
I do wonder though as time passes and I perhaps have less contact with people in the UK (which is already pretty minimal or non existent for many of them apart from the odd bit on FB or the like) that I'll read less or be less and less interested in what goes on over there. Obviously much of what I read is not impacting me in the least, not being my home anymore but I do like to be informed. Same as I like to be informed here. I think that perhaps when I can vote here I'll possibly have less interest in the political aspects of the UK. Perhaps not
Anyways, just wondering how much news others follow. If its mostly Aus or local Adelaide news, world news, UK matters, bit of everything or something else?
