I Hate Living In Australia

For those who wish they had been born somewhere else, or at least had the means to escape... 358 People

    I have had problems with this country

    since coming here in 1978 which I have kept inside of me for far too long. Now I am letting off steam. It is bloody expensive to live here and if you are on a low income or receiving welfare payments you will struggle. This is no ''Lucky Country'' and would recommend anyone...

    The 'Australian' Hate

    (And Why I hate it) I was born in a really **** part of England. There were robberies, gangs rife, the streets were dangerous and a majority of the muslim people in our town despised us (even though we were BORN there) and so it goes on, and on, and on. Now, I live in sunny WA...

    This post is directed to anybody considering

    moving to Australia. Don't be fooled by the promotion of this country being friendly, accepting, easy going, etc. Because the reality is very disappointing. You may have heard about Australia being a 'multicultural' society. This is complete nonsense. Australia is one of the...

    Australians have no respect

    for their own history. They are so ignorant about it. We have no historic quarters in our large cities or towns preserved in their entirety that are historical. The closest we come is either Battery Point in Hobart or Maldon in Victoria. Still they are a poor imitation. We...

    Glad To Have Left Australia!!!!

    After living in the '*** end of the earth' for three years, I am very happy to have left that country. I grew up there and even I can see how downhill both Sydney and Australia have gone since the 1980's. I can sum it by these observations: The cities are too damn expensive to...

    A Message to Australians!

    Many of you want us out of Australia. We do not want to be in Australia. We were fooled into migrating to Australia by clever advertising. Now, we are stuck here and we face obstacles. Once, these obstacles are removed; we would swiftly leave this awful Australia for ever...

    An Aussie bogan should be defined by attitude

    and behaviour rather than race or ethnic background. There are many bogans of non-anglo background. Bogans come in all shapes, sizes and colour. What unites all aussie-bogans is their way of seeing the world, their place in it, their behavior, beliefs and expressions and life...

    Aussie Psychology.
