    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    Purcy - you're not a teetotaller are you ? lol That was one of the worst things of all about living and working in the middle east - having to get a ''license'' to buy booze and have the right to drink...) (Or in the case of some countries there COMPLETE prohibition...) Its why when the muslim...

    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    So generous of you to allow me to maintain my own opinion there pauper - and yes, I still maintain that the immigration we are talking about here is contrary to Australian law and that its an expense that every Australian taxpayer has to pay (and overall is NOT in the national interest) - and at...

    Just assaulted I feel not good at all

    There is absolutely no reason for you not to buy yourself a really good (large/oversized) pepper spray (I would recommend the ''Red Sabre'' in the 110gr bottle - law enforcement strength) and a reasonable stun gun (it doesn't have to be anything fancy - the armerias in the police district sell...

    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    Oh - sorry about that - you're obviously correct - its not costing Australia (and therefore the Australian taxpayer) anything at all - the fact that its costing us hundreds of MILLIONS of dollars is obviously ''all in my mind'' - its not really a problem at all :) And yes, the fact that the...

    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    Um - I am still awake - for some reason - I think its the last drink and cigar to celebrate one problem having been solved - the Osama factor - but even so - and even though I've knocked off my fair share of oporto tonight - do you REALLY believe that comparing apples with oranges will work? A...

    OSAMA BIN LADEN Killed by USA

    lol:) I'm not saying a word - it was a ''Freudian slip'' perchance :) lol Still - in the spirit of the festivities even though it is after 2am here in BA I will FORCE myself to drink a bit more of the rather fine local moscato (or maybe some more of the oporto or mistela), light up one last...

    I hate to disappoint you there but even *I* sleep sometimes :) I don't actually work in Argentina - I service customers back in Australia by voip telephony - and am paid in Oz and pay taxes there - although in the future I will probably establish my own business here too - unlike the illegal...

    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    Ho hum - I honestly couldn't be bothered - but I will post a couple of links that at least define illegal immigration into Australia in fairly clear and understandable terms - terms of the extent of the problem, the side effects, the costs and so on...

    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    My my my - this topic has taken some interesting turns and twists :) Yes NDCJ - I came into Argentina LEGALLY...:) lol As for most of the above re: Australia its interesting to note that the only thing not being considered here is the facts... The people smugglers involved in attempting to...

    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    There's no doubt about it - reading this thread is WAY more fun than sitting here waiting for my customers in Australia to call me :) lol I think it might be time to crack open another fine bottle of the local red, knock off some more of the rather yummy picada my other half has made and start...

    Your experience of Singapore was obviously similar to mine Jared - the first time I went there I noticed the difference - you walked down the street - any street - at any time of the day or night and actually felt SAFE - it hasn't been like that in Australia for a long time now...

    Syngirl - the pleasure is mutual :) Terribly sorry that my weltanschaaung/world view doesn't coincide with yours - actually - no - I'm lying - I'm quite happy that my world view is different - and as shocking as it might be for you to have to deal with the fact, in most democratic nations (but...

    A belated topic that would have been better on ANZAC DAY...

    Amusing really :) Defining illegal in terms of immigration is pretty easy in the Australian context - you have the average Brit or European who goes through official channels and often waits years to get all the legit paperwork done and then moves to Australia and then you have the other sort...
