Where's the poll?

Congratulations - you have set an all time cuk record from thread post to asking where poll is - about 27 milliseconds I believe.

When do you want your prize?

I think a Jim Bowen depression: A "super smashing great" depression

I voted "Great" as I think the one now names the "Great" depression will be nothing compared to the one we are now slowly entering.

I believe that the stock markets are still far from the bottom - and they are the quickest (publicly available data points) to recover.

This will be years.

Apparently "Long" was known as "Great" until the "Great" came along. If you get my drift.

In that case we need 'The depression to end all depressions'

I know and that is why the current one will become the "Great" - renaming the old "great" from the 30's to something else.

Yes, and "Great" will soon become known as the "Second Greatest" :D

Australia visa application is almost completed. Hopefully the far better state of their public finances will make it less painful there...

Its the future. Everything is going to move East. UK will just be left with chavs.

Australia is the land of milk and Honey. Well, Uranium, Thorium, sunlight, low population. Boomed.

DS, are you doing the application yourself or paying vast sums of your hard earned (read - invoiced for not doing much) to an immigration consultant?

I don't think it will be great... I think it will be awesome.

And it's great to be able to sit here and watch it happen totally unaffected.

Being brave and doing it myself. When it all goes tits up I'll probably use a migration agent :laugh

Best bet by far. I might just have been unlucky but the migration consultant I used recently was worse than useless, to the point where I needed to tell him what to do at stages of the application.

On top of that since they apply on your behalf the actual embassy will not send anything direct to you, only to the (physical) address of the agency. Since Embassies refuse to use email for any type of communication and the Australian (and UK embassy in Oz) both have the cheek to charge you $10 to speak to them on the phone, it all becomes a tad tedious.

Anyway good luck DS! :happy
