I've never bought the myth that Australia is a wondrous bountiful haven, the best and most beautiful country on Earth. Apart from the animal situation - it has been pointed out that everything in Australia is either weird, poisonous, or sheep - the never ending sun they advertise would tend to just give me a headache.
Recently, they themselves have had the never-ending sun they advertise, and it has put them in a massive drought - you suddenly hear of English people planning to migrate back again as they actually miss having water to shower in.
Anyway, the drought is over in at least part of Australia. They're now underwater
If this is what I'd have to put up with to support a good cricket team, I'll just stick with reminiscing about 2005 thanks very much.
