Don't really want to start off a debate, but we had visitors over from Adelaide last weekend, and they brought with them the mandatory copies of the Advertiser and several bars of Cherry Ripes!
The Advertiser is always a good read, it's only a year since our last visit to Adelaide but you get out of touch quickly. I like to see the prices of things in the adverts. I was amazed at the price of Hot Cross Buns at Foodland, $2.99 ($3) for 6 !!! That works out at 50 cents each!! At Tescos they are 12 for £1.20 (10p or 20c each). That's a huge price difference.
Also spotted the results of the previous day's Voteline (138 callers).
Q: "Should the State Government make it tougher for migrants to enter the state?"
A: Yes 96% No 4%
Not a representative sample (138) but interesting that the question is being asked in the first place.
I asked our (Australian) guests if they had noticed that there were a lot more British people in Adelaide now (you get the impression reading these forums that the whole of the UK is emigrating!) and surprisingly they answered that they hadn't noticed any difference. They were totally unaware of Hallett Cove being dubbed 'little Britain' etc etc.
Still got a lot more reading to do. I just noticed Ken (KG) Cunningham used to be a cricketer. I never knew that...!!!........
