Q: What do you miss about the UK?
A: Real ale, cod and chips, Indian food. Most beer sold here is lager chilled to the point where you can't taste it. [...] for some reason there are no decent Indian takeaways.
In my experience this is true of everywhere outside of the state capitals in Aus.
His comment about fixed wireless NBN and trees is rather worrying too. It sounds like we'll be fucked when they light up the local tower next year.
