Record number of Britons moving to Australia:

A RECORD number of Britons are moving to Australia, with Queensland their destination of choice, a new survey shows. Britain's ailing economy and gloomy weather are believed to be the main reasons many people are packing up and moving Down Under, according to the Move Monitor survey carried out for removalist firm Pickfords.


The study found a 31 per cent leap in the number of Britons who moved to Australia in 2008 compared to the previous year.


Queensland was the most popular state to set up home in for Britons wanting a new life in Australia for the second consecutive year.


However, there was a 44 per cent rise in the number of people wanting to move to Adelaide and a 42 per cent increase in Melbourne's popularity.


"The Move Monitor has revealed that Queensland is our most popular destination in Australia I am sure the quality of life, sunnier climate and diverse job opportunities play a part in the relocation decision," spokesman Graham Hardwick said.


About 40,000 Britons moved to Australia in 2007, with about 23,000 intending to stay permanently.
The Move Monitor tracks the relocation trends of Pickford's 7000 customers who move overseas each year.

Taff, they got it wrong. We re - introduced transportation, just we aren't advertising it.



Up before the beak for stealing a sheep - option one ten years hard labour, option 2 transportation.



Hopefully, we will offload all our thiefs and toerags onto you guys as we did a couple of centuries ago.



if it ain't broke, why fix it. :cheeky1::cheeky1::cheeky1:

With the housing market plummeting here, you can probably breath easy again Taffy, it will slow up for a while now I suspect, those of us who might wish to get the heck out will have to wait it out for now. :(

You can also relax some more, Australia would not be my destination of choice!!:cheeky1:

Apparently not true Taffy since 40k chose to come in 2007 and figues have been rising, but Helen and I have a different agenda planned if we survive that long and it doesn't involve having ourselves tied to any one place. :)
