Quoting Lou.c.

waltzing matilda should be our anthem.... it`s suits the history and the culture of the nation perfectly - coz it`s about stealing

Yeah but the ones that were sent to Aus were crap at it......They got caught

I think its funny that both Oz & NZ are desperate for key workers from Europe - I guess thats because all the Oz & NZ people are working in the bars in London!!!!!! ;)

No it's because all the keys have been lost

But what do you call a 'Key' worker? the definition in the UK is bollocks, (Police, Nurse and teachers).
I'd define a 'Key' worker as someone who is vital to society - you can do without for a while teachers, police (get the army in)ok fair enough a nurse if pretty important but more so is:
Cleaners, rubbish collectors, sewerge workers, water workers. Without these caos and death would happen alot faster than the loss of the so called key workers, oh and they don't get paid near as much !!!!!

Jase007, you're on drugs again mate. "Key" workers are brewery staff and bar staff. The rest are mere details mate!

Cheers James,
Jase slaps himself out of the serious state of reality

Now, where did you say the Keys were?

I didn't. But I'm sure they're hanging up somewhere

I thought I would come and visit this thread because you guys get along. ;) None of this "Oh, you suck!" "No, you suck!" "I know you do, but what am I?" stuff. There lively banter and beer. Over in our Canadians and Americans thread, it's all somber and serious. Okay, serious discussion isn't a bad thing, but lighten up a bit! I think they should come over here to take banter and beer lessons. You guys are definitely more fun! I like it here. maybe I'll stay for awhile... Anyone have a spare cot or sofa?

Isa make a hasty retreat because she knows wherever Americans go, somber and serious aren't far behind.

Oh no, I can't find the keys and there is a long weekend comming up !!!
Some dodgy aussie (James) must have them, and not letting everyone in on it.
Look whats happened now, we've got ISA defecting from the Americas' to join GodsZone of Drink, Sun and fun

Are you looking for these???? Isa dangles the keys in front of Jase... Jingle, jingle, jingle...

Hey, if one is going to defect, it's best to have the keys to the castle pub in hand!!!! You supply the sun and fun - I'll get the first round.

I declare every weekend a long weekend!

We "work" (or pretend to work) for 2 days per week, and have a 5 day weekend!

This does not apply to brewery staff nor waitresses!! As key members of society (now where are those blasted keys?) you still have to work a 5 day weekend, but we're gonna triple your pay! No, quadruple it!

Oh, and all politicians are sacked!

Agree or disagree?
