What does everybody say?
Agreed! Because lets face it while the UK is all well and good. I don't like the monarchy Yes I do wish Australia was a Republic, I was one of the people that arr trying to push the Republic movement in Tassie. It's a lot harder in Tassie I swear we've got more bogans on average However I do wish our rating system would get sorted out right now and our government to have some good poltical leaders. Julia Gillard she's not good, the same with Tony Abbot, especially when he says to one of our soldiers when his friend dies in combat "**** Happens" I lost a friend to combat and that is by far the worst thing to here from a possible leader of my country.

I'm in this phase of my life where i want to pack up bags and move to Australia from the UK. I'm sick of britain, it's too densely populated and there's barely any work around. Nevermind the deep social problems we seem to have. I wouldn't say it's good at all..

However, when i read this, i had to ask myself would it be better to have a nanny government like Australia's or one like the UK?

I think i might just go live with the aboriginals.

Mate if you want to move anywhere move to New Zealend (but not right now) Because they have a lot of stuff that Australia doesn't for instance an R18+ for games.

My Hairdresser is from Korea and I was shocked when she told me they have $100 fines for littering. My Jaw hit the ground when she told me that. But Korea is too far away and I like my beach

Part of me would as well but. What if I accidently missed the can I stuffed I got caught the other day in the back of my mates car without a seatbelt and they would've fined me $1000 for not wearing a seat belt and $1500+ for my mate because he didn't check if everyone in the car didn't have their seat belt on. The only reason they didn't fine us was because I was hurt during football training and I had to lie my leg out. The Kiwi cop we had though looked like he was ready to book us but the female cop was very nice Anyway we're getting off track...

We need an overhaul of our rating system!

Basically, kick the large majority of our current politicians out and bring some newer more open minded ones in

I'm not sure about everybody else but I think kevin rudd would be good, he's got the ideas, the problem was nobody'd follow him (just like whitlam).

Come here on a working visa (apparently their really easy to get), live here for a year or two and if you want to stay get citizenship.

I think they actually have an ok government, their gun laws are reasonably unrestricted, no internet filters drafted, everything is reasonably priced, they try to stay neutral during wars and their country is pretty much in one piece. If we could learnsomething from our brothers it might be good

If Labour had kept Rudd in they would've won the election. Sure they would've lost a few seats but they still would've won. He kept us out of the reccession for crying out loud. He only would've had to say that and he would've still got the votes, but Labour always does this to them self and destroys each other from within vying for power why the Liberals just watch and wait to be re-elected.

I completely agree, we could learn a lot from New Zealand. A few friends and I were even thinking about moving over there... but costs and we've got a really nice place on the beach... that we're going to have to leave in 6 months from bloody land lord. But everything but the unrescrited gun laws I'm fine with, just when guns are brought into the equation I want them out immediately.

If only the libs had one, then this mess wouldn't have mattered, it was so close too

I was thinking about going to uni there for a while, but their courses differ a fair bit, and the cost of colleges and flights is pretty expensive. Cheaper to just stay in toowoomba

Most people seem to be frightened of more unrestrictive gun laws (note the more, not unrestrictive), I think they just need to be handled differently. I did an assignment on gun laws a while ago and simply having a test from a physiologist when going for your gun license (and having another one every 5 years or so) to make sure you are stable would be the best bet(as well as the usual background checks and such). Restricting what you can buy isn't as smart as it sounds, in fact it can make things worse (people turn to illegal arms which fund other illegal activities). I've been shooting since I was young and its a very fun sport(shooting anything loud will guarantee a smile ), and should be supported by our government, not hindered as it has been time and time again (not asking for assault rifles, only civilian semi-autos, semi automatic pistols preferably being able to use in self defence situations and semi-auto and pump action shotguns ).

I went a bit overboard with the gun laws stuff but I'm a bit passionate about it you see, maybe I should move to NZ
