we both watched the program, what a lazy ,moaning man!
There must have been more to it than not wanting to pay the $500 licence .
Maybe he didn't think he'd pass what he needed to, for it ?
Or maybe he thought if he held out long enough , earning $100 a week , that his wife , or should i say meal ticket , would work even more hours a week as well as cook clean and look after the kids, while he moaned about the heat , sand, and crappy fixing washing machines full time for $100 a week job he had.
Still it was food for thought.
Didnt show much Oz though!
The main point I kept picking up on was the fact he was moaning about his job over here before he went to Oz, and all through the process of applying for a visa, never once considered he`d made a mistake
And $500 is a small price to pay for a licence to work, where he would have earned substantially more than he was, and therefore would have had a better quality of life for his family
But as most of you have said, he seemed a right obnoxious, stubborn git;)
You get nothing for free in this lifetime, whether in this country or abroad, and you have to work for it. He, however seemed reluctant to do any :(
Yep he was a total prat, I can't believe she gave in in the end. She's going to resent him for making her come back for the rest of their days, not a recipe for a happy marriage!
Some people just aren't happy unless they've got something to moan about. It's people like him that give the rest of us a bad name.
Makes you wonder why the Aussies think we are 'whinging' poms :D
Wanted to slap them both - especially for involving their daughter in all the petty moans and sulks!
No place like home
It makes you wonder what made them move to Oz in the first place especially as he doesn't like the heat or the beach!!
I hated the condesending way he told his daughter "your entitled to your opinion too".
We watched it and also couldn't understand why he wouldn't pay for that certificate.Why would you put your family through hardship. What I can't understand is that their house cost £160,000 and they had a pool.Our friends have just moved to Perth and their house has cost 130,000 and yet when you look on realestate.com they are all expensive and need lots doing to them can anyone answer me whats going on?

To get a house for that price in Perth or Melbourne you would have to be a long way out from the city, I have friends in ""Melbourne" their house was well over $400k and they are 55mins from Melbourne, I know people from Perth and It is the same. Here you say you live in Melbourne or Perth, but you could be an hour away. Adelaide is more like half an hour!
its on again tonight on itv2 if you do want to waste an hour of your life!;)
