I've always debated moving to Australia.... its getting easier and easier to justify the move daily.
The problem is, if there were no America, Australia would not last long, nor would any other free country.
You should consider Tasmania, a fantastic place, great climate, and they have statues of their famous prostitutes in Hobart. I loved Hobart, almost refused to leave.
australia still has a huge immigrant population...
just because howard says some strong words doesn't mean much happens or will happen.
We have family there and my Dad will be going back for his 3rd trip to AU and New Zeeland this year.
If you want to go, start applying now. It'll take you ten years to get permission/visa to live there, IF you're lucky. ;)
Wish we were so strict!
