bigmouth, you are entitled to your own view. Adelaide certainly isn't the land of milk and honey they sold us at the expos we went to. However, in our opinion we are happier. We dont want the night life you aspire to having, but then we are old biddies at 42 and 45! We have oppurtunities that we werent offered in the UK. And most importantly, from our point of view our children have great choices here that they may not have had prior to emmigrating. Like I said, its not perfect, the houses arent cheap compared to the wages here. But they are cheap compared to the rest of Australia and if your priority is a more laid back life style with cheaper housing then Adelaide may just be the right place for some. We still have to pay bills and electricity is outrageously expensive but, its all about choice. Please offer some constructive advice and indeed some of your own personal experiances to those considering a move, we read those kind of posts avidly when we were still in the UK. Just dont be so negative and bitter, its not nice and youre a very bad boy for doing it!!
And, lastly, please dont be so hostile to an incredibly talented individual such as Mr Church, who has fought to bring his skills to this country. Its demeaning to any argument or serious point you may have.
