wesand mel and jimandadel are clearly correct, there is less consumer protection fact no diispute. There is also weaker legislation on many areas, environmental protection is significantly weaker. One example consequently the rate of asbestosis is three times higher than England. On consumer issues look at protection for housing, getting your bond back from a landlord is much more tortuous and less immediate than in UK, it can be kept 6 months theoretically although you can apply to the state body for it, but it is potentially a slow process if the landlord is difficult. It took 3 months from Toop and Toop for me while they sat on the interest.
Whether you like Australia or not there is no harm in pointing out what is wrong, as foreigners we can bring something and teach something why not. What kind of person comes and just accepts it all as better, one who is too lazy to think, not to say somethings are not better
Also I am not moaning about being here in Australia as i do love it here. I'm just pointing out a fact. If i was in England i would also have opinions of the way things are done there. I think its called caring or maybe i am just a winging Pom. I do wonder sometimes.
We used to live in the U.S for quite a while before we moved to Africa. And quite frankly Africa has given us a load of memories (good ones) to cherish (just as the U.S. did). Now Oz has come along.
I guess as long as we remain humans we will always find something to complain about.
We are all looking for something better/different.....whats the difference.
Enjoy the ride whilst is lasts. We don't live for ever.
I think you are ripped off know matter where you live. You are right we are looking for something better even just a little better.
Yes..quite correct. We get ripped off where ever we live.
just look at what is happening in the world. Large corporations get into trouble and the tax payer has to bail them out. Yet during the good times it was only the shareholders that got paid dividends. And the rest of us continued to buy their crappy products so they could continue to get their dividends.
Software companies rush to release products into the market and then expect us to report back to them of any flaws so they can fix them. So who is the g/pig? don't forget we paid for it too :)
...the list goes on.
Aus is different. Isn't that the reason why we want to move there. To get there and moan about the differences is a bit Naive.
