    Goodluck with your move, HHG and family.

    England is fascinating for its history and everything, but I'd rather live in Australia.

    The pay in the UK is disgusting. The average pay here for a very average job is $20 an hour that is £12 an hour, thats just for stacking shelves at supermarkets. In england people get payed £5 an hour for that job and get 23% taken off for tax in Australia it is only 10%.

    The local Sainsbury's starting salary is £6.50 an hour which I think is quite typical and the UK minimum wage is £5.93 per hour so the correspondent is talking a load of tosh. There is an annual tax threshold of £7,475 before a single penny of tax is deducted.

    I would say one thing though - his grammar . diction and spelling (there is no "e" at the end of stomach , by the way) is something of an indictment to the British eduction system. Good luck to him in Australia though - they can have him (though I thought we stopped sending our low lifes there a hundred years ago!)

    Seriously though HHG - good luck in Canada if you do decide to move there. It is a lovely country & very Brit friendly. Re where you are hoping to move to , I have a friend who is earning excellent money on the oil sands in Alberta , though it is filthy work in a horrible environment - he hopes to make enough money in a few years to be able to retire early in the cotswolds. I suspect you will be back on the plane to Blighty after a few years like so many of the people I know who have emigrated.

    If you lose your job in Australia you can still make a living shooting and eating kangaroos, there's millions of them.
