Commerce Commission To Investigate?

The economy is heading for an extremely hard landing, thanks to an instransigent reserve bank, interest rates are high and rising, the dollar is high and rising, skilled Kiwis are flooding out of the country to Australia where they can literally double their take home pay overnight and Cunliffe describes New Zealand as 'fizzing and buzzing.'

Adolf' son in law is a specialist welder. He earns $27 per hour here and when he arrives in Western Australia he walks into a $39 per hour job. Of course that's up North in the mines, I hear you say. Well no it isn't. It's in an extremely pleasant sea side city not far south of Perth.

So who care's about relative tax rates and a few other minor differences? That's what these clowns in Labour can't bring themselves to understand. When you have too many people on the take and not enough on the make, there's only one way you can go and that's down the gurgler.

Welcome home ex pats who are dumb enough to believe anything this mob tells you. And they are spending $850k on advertising to tell the lies.

That pleasant seaside town wouldn't be Busselton, would it?
The local paper there was looking for a chief reporter only recently.

No, it's Bunbury actually. Buselton is 25 miles further south and I doubt has city status. What it does have is the most concentrated population of bushflies, anywhere in Australia. Believe me

Adolf - Myself and family are heading over there early next year. Not selling up here but will be gone for a couple of years at least. I can make almost double over there in my trade working for someone else than I am making here working for myself.

We are planning a new venture over there and can't believe the resources the state (Queensland) gov makes available. Sounds like they almost want you to succeed.

As you can imagine its a breath of fresh air after floundering neck deep in the unidentified substance that is the Great NZ Bureaucracy for the last 10 years.

I may not be one of the best and brightest but I work my arse off and it takes more than the drop of a hat to make me give up.

So my one year old will talk with an Aussie accent and want to do 15 different sports. Is that a bad thing?
