My answer to Is Australia really as wonderful as Aussies say it is?
Answer by Desmond Last:
Absolutely. I am stuck in the U.K exiled in a wilderness of robot drones who bend over for every lie told by their Governments.
Where spirit is only found in the bottle and not the soul.
Where the ‘Jobs Worth’ reigns supreme and the Ghenhis Khan’s are alive and well in the Town Halls.
Here a quick drive down the road is a maze of traffic lights and roundabout because the Council have removed the ability of people to think for themselves.
Give me the big open space of Australia with its sunsets of blazing color and its deserts of open minds and never-ending wilderness.
I dream of the long golden sands empty but stirring with imagination.
I have so tried to carry out a one-man revolution to stir the broken spirit of the U.K but they were all watching T.V. or bending over for the Chinese.
But most of all I miss the spirit. The spirit that saw the Anzac's not sway from a certain death yet buoyed by their duty and comradeship.
Yes Australia is as good as the Aussies say it is.
