Why Do So Many Australians Move to London?

Post by Guest on Sat Jan 25, 2014 3:38 pm

First topic message reminder :

It's Australia Day this weekend. And some of the biggest gatherings of antipodeans will be happening right here in London. It's become a second home to many young Aussies. But why? What is it about this city that draws so many of us in when we so readily revel in tormenting the English cricket team? How can we declare our love, when we proudly declare that our lifestyle of balmy weather and beaches is to be envied by London Brits who covet grey skies and enduring winters? 
In the short video below, the love Aussies have for the city is explored as one expat who is getting ready to depart, reflects on why she fell in love with London and why so many of her Australian friends feel the same. As you follow Rebecca's interview you'll see she really struggles with a definitive answer, and it shows that perhaps it's simply just a feeling that has so many of us hooked.

@eddie

nuh we type and speak Aussie which is adapted to communicate with people of multicultures.
Smile

we're not stuck in the time warp and let things evolve naturally. Plus the perpetual sarcasm or Australians means that smilies are really useful to show when your joking (big help to people with English as 2nd or 3rd language Wink )... Plus we beat up ::slap:: ::slap:: all the grammar police ::resmahauth:: ::resmahauth:: ::resmahauth::

GO Convicts cheers cheers cheers cheers

Cool 

"WHY do so many Aussies move to London" ?

NAH !  I reckon the bigger question should be :

WHY do so few of them stay in England for more than a year or three ???

It is working both ways - Brits are leaving Australia in larger numbers, because life isn't tough enough there.

Aussies are leaving Britain because life is too hard for them.

I think you'll find Veya, that thebenglish don't need smilies to know when you're joking or sarcastic. It's erm, fairly obvious.
