    don't move here then, i live on the south east coast which in winter is mild compared to everywhere else and it still gets in the minus in the winter and w=i'm on the sea. london gets colders and up north freezes.

    Just as a warning don't go to scotland if you do move here, this winter northern scotland had -14 or something.
    Was following the crazy weather the UK had over the Christmas/New Year period. Nothing I've ever experienced (never seeing snow and all) it'd be a new experience.

    Besides that moving or taking a trip to the UK is a long way off at the moment, just a pipe dream.

    I could move to Melbourne in a hertbeat, having spent a month there last year. It has avery European feel, big on arts/cafe/bar culture. It does get a bit chilly in the Winter, and is barely cheaper than London, but it has a real vibe and buzz to it, feeling similar to Camden, Notting Hill etc.

    London plz. Cause I is loving this city.

    Australian girls seem so trashy - it's like Essex on an island.

    Plus I like having an Ozone layer/not having skin cancer. And allow sunny Christmas.

    I'v lived in Australia for 2 years. Been to the UK for a month only, but aiming to study at uni in the UK.
    i liked the UK much better. London's quite expensive though, but in Australia, Sydney can also be insanely expensive. I liked the weather in the UK better (have nothing against winter)
    Australia too hot, thin ozone layer, high skin cancer rates, yet more scenic beauty than the UK.
    Much more to do and see.
    I'd stay in the UK (probably because I havent experienced it completely yet)
    However, more people are going to Australia from the UK than are entering the UK from Australia.
    The grass is ALWAYS greener on the other side of the fence.

    England, Australia is moving closer and closer towards fascist dictatorship. I mean we have restrictive laws too, but by contrast...
    look at the crime rates sonny, they say it all. i've been to aus many times, and trust me, NOBODY annoys the police, nobody would even think of speeding or giving a copper lip

    If I wanted irrelevant details, I would have typed "Please quote me and state patronising and superfluous things unrelated to what I said". Which leads me to ask, why "sonny"? That gives me the impression that you're much older than me, but after looking through your posts we're about the same age. Could your post be any more asinine?

    Moreover, I'd still prefer to live in England because the government hasn't banned female ejaculation and small breasts in porn.
    Whoa calm down sonny, yes australia has stricter laws and such but your stupid comment about fascist government??? Thats why i mentioned the crime thing, they maybe strict, but look at how aus's crime rates compare to england (they're much lower).

    I've lived most of my life in Australia and I prefer England.

    Although I'm constantly told by people that I'd be happier and better off back in Australia by people who've never been there lol

    WTF are you on about








    Doesn't it worry you that australia has more rapes than britain in absolute terms with a third the population?



    Weather is one thing, but crime is one thing australia is not short on.

    Ok then, maybe i over exaggerated with the crime thing, but it doesnt change the fact aus was voted 2nd best place to live 2009, whilst england came in 21st. Overall, aus has more positives

    People also say english food is ****, while I absolutely adore it.


    Overall it's a matter of preference.



    Also - It wasn't voted second best place to live, it just ranked second on HDI, which, as mentioned before, is a hideously poor measure.

    That's not really a justification is it..
    For me it is. That's why I said it.
